I have been chewing Big Red made by Wrigley's, which from my understanding is gluten-free. However, I am rechecking all of my ingredients and foods to make sure I am not missing something, and have not been able to verify this. Just curious if anyone knows and what you like to chew.

Yep...I heard about Wrigley's from a nutritionist...I also heard that Wrigley's was the only gluten-free gum.....then again, I've never heard of some of the gums you mentioned, so maybe the nutritionist didn't know about them, either.

I was just wondering if anyone else has reacted to Trident gum? I've been completely gluten-free and milk/lactose free for awhile now, and today I had two pieces of Trident. I'm feeling pretty icky tonight! I thought Trident was okay?

I have ALWAYS reacted very badly to Trident because of the sorbitol (the indigestible sugar substitute). I would get intense cramping pains and diarrhea, very much like a lot of people get celiac symptoms, but my celiac symptoms were always delayed cramping/bloating and NEVER diarrhea (just the opposite :o ). I now stay FAR away from any sugar free gums and just chew Dentyne Original flavor (I hate those new sugar pellets they recently added) or Bubble Yum Original Flavor.

don't forget that the recaldent found in some gums is a milk derivative, so if you're sensitive to casein (not just lactose intolerant, I think), you will react to it.

Tarnalberry: OOOPPSS! Is recaldent included in Dentyne and Bubble Yum as well? I could only see: sugar, gum base, glucose syrup, artivicial and natural flavoring, softening (including soy), BHT and red 40 lake, on Dentyne. Don't have any bubble gum in the house. Which of those ingredients (if any) would include recaldent? BTW what IS recaldent? Maybe I'd better hide the rest of my Dentyne pack until I know (I think I had 4 pieces yesterday and I'm STILL having mild symptoms, tho' most have disappeared). :o Thanks for the heads up.

    • Ok, I can't seem to find my first lot of blood tests that were done for Celiac screening, they did include TTG I remember that much, and I am getting another copy of it but another test did come in today.  I don't know how different tests are done around the world and I don't get all the medical jargon but this is what it states, ******************************************************************************* HLA DR/DQ Genotyping for Coeliac Disease, Specimen type : EDTA blood Method : Detection of sequence-specific oligonucleotides (Gen-Probe). HLA-DR - 1, 13          DRB1 - 01, 13 HLA-DQ - 5,6        HLA-DQA1 - 5,6      HLA-DB1 - 05, 06 Interpretation : No genotype susceptibility for coeliac disease.  The DQ2 and DQ8 antigens associated with increased risk of coeliac disease were not identified in this patient.  In the absence of these antigens, coeliac disease is extremely unlikely.   *******************************************************************************   I have read the horror stories of blood tests and scope biopsies not be done right or flawed but here is what I do know as of now, At the moment the most non invasive test I can have done say negative.  I have double scopes (endoscopy and colonoscopy) booked for the 12th of October with results from biopsies expected a week or two after. Chances are they will show, a) signs of coeliac disease (even if the odds are low it can still happen), b) show signs of something else entirely and we will be busy dealing with the ramifications of that or c) it will show no signs of coeliac but I will still be suffering from gluten sensitivity (which is harder/impossible to measure clinically). My GP has told me that stress and anxiety can be a cause of all the symptoms I have been experiencing and suggests if the scopes show nothing that I may benefit from something to treat anxiety, i.e. antidepressants.  Not in a, "Oh we don't know what it is so have these," kind of way, he agrees with the thought that the scopes could indeed show coeliac, something else or even be negative. I did tell him that I could have a sensitivity and that even without benefit of clinical results, some people have gone on a gluten elimination diet for a period of time to see if they get any relief.  My question is this, if the scopes come up negative and I try eliminating gluten, how long would it be before I saw any results or improvements?  I have read enough here and elsewhere to know that everybody is different, some see results within days, some see results longer but are there any guidelines for how long a test like this should be undertaken for?  I have heard everything thing from two weeks to two months.  All of this is entirely moot at this point but I know that even if the results said clear, there would always be a little part of me that wonders if it could be a sensitivity that is the problem.  Any thoughts or advice greatly appreciated, and a thank you to all those who have taken the time to respond and offer advice and encouragement so far.

    • Thanks I never heard of that dye before, I guess I have to find more natural meat thanks for the suggestion. 
    • Yes, I only eat one meal a day. Sometimes salad or fries or whatever I can find. And thanks for the replies again.
    • A colonoscopy is not used to diagnose celiac disease.  An endoscopy is used to obtain biopsies in the small intestine.
