In the past I have heard that Ricola cough drops are gluten free. However, I noticed on their website that it claims their products have "less that 0.01% gluten" and it recommends that one checks with their doctor regarding whether or not they should eat this product.

I don't think it is, but I just want to double-check....Is less than 0.01% acceptable?

I've had these in the past and have never had a problem with them.

Here is the e-mail response that I received. I eat them all the time and have not had a problem and I am super sensitive. I tend to stick with the same two flavours taht I always have.

I received a similar reply from Ricola USA:

Thank you for your interest in Ricola products.

Because of the increase in requests regarding the gluten free question, we asked our Quality Assurance Dept. in Switzerland to supply us with a more detailed response. Please be advised as follows:

All Ricola products are manufactured in Switzerland and all products are within the limits for gluten established by the Swiss Celiac Association.
The limits are maximum 10 mg gluten per 1 kg of finished product. Product that is within this limit can be considered, according to the Swiss Celiac Association, as suitable for celiac patients.

In the United States, there are no established government standards as to what can be considered gluten-free or what is safe for use in celiac patients. Our products contain less than 0.01% gluten.

We urge you to share this information with your doctor to determine whether it is safe to use our products, or to contact the Celiac Sprue Association of the United States @ 1-877-CSA-4CSA.

We trust this responds to your concerns and thank you for your interest in our products.
