I am trying to find a probiotic that is without gluten, fair and soy and I thought I found one but this is what the label said under ingredients:

 

Other Ingredients: Mannitol (corn or wheat), inulin, silicon dioxide.
Contains none of the following: added colors, preservatives, dairy, lactose, milk, yeast, gluten or soy.


 

 

I'm confused  - any help is appreciated.

Its so highly processed it has no gluten. For myself, mannitol, no matter what the source, bothers me. Not gluten issue.

Mannitol, a sugar alcohol, is gluten-free regardless of the source. It does have a laxative effect, especially in large amounts.
