Is nutmeg gluten-free?
Yes, nutmeg is gluten-free. Gluten is a type of protein found in grains like wheat, barley, and rye. Nutmeg is a spice derived from the seeds of the nutmeg tree, not a grain, hence it does not naturally contain gluten. However, please be aware of potential cross-contamination if the nutmeg is processed in facilities that also process gluten-bearing grains. Always check labels to ensure your spices are certified gluten-free.
