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.

beechnut (peppermint, spearmint, cinnamom)
Bubblicious
Bubble tape
Bubble Yum
Carefree
Chiclets (reg and tiny)
Clorets
Dentyne
DoubleBubble
Freedent (peppermint, winter fresh, spearmint)
Fruit Stripe
Ice Breakers
Trident (all)
Wonka gumballs
Wrigleys

Hope this helps :D

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.
