Apologies if this is known information, but I jut got off the phone with Hall's Cough Drops and was told that their entire line is gluten-free! In my starter kit it said only Sugar-Free varieties, which I asked the woman about, and she said that used to be the case, but in the last few months they have made ALL Halls items gluten-free. So lozenge away!

Thanks for the info!!

Thank you SO MUCH! I have needed a cough drop lately and those have always been my favorites, particularly because they use sugar instead of the ubiquitous corn syrup. Thank you again!

good question. i hadn't thought about old product lying around, although it wasn't clear whether they had actually changed the content of their drops or just gotten around to completely verifying their gluten-free-ness. Anyway, they have expiration dates, so look for the ones that are furthest away, they'd be the newest.

Oh, by starter kit I meant the delphi list -- a good to place to start for safe items. If you don't have it I believe you can download here: http://magickhand.go...urvivalkitfiles

I called themlike a few months ago and they told me they could not guarantee it and in some flavors they even said clearly that they were not gluten free. Maybe they changed. I stick with Ludens because they actually could answer it without a doubt that they are gluten free.

Just got off the phone with them again because I've been sick lately and thought perhaps Halls were the cause. She said again categorically all flavors all varieties of halls were gluten-free. She said infact they always had been, but they just got new information from their "regulatory commission" verifying the whole line. She also said they would soon be using allergen information on the packaging.

This is my first time posting so I hope I am doing it correctly. Anyhoo ... I noticed that you said that Ludens Cough Drops are gluten free. Do you remember how you contacted the company for this information? I have been the family's resource for gluten-free info and can generally find out anything, but haven't been able to find a contact number, website or e-mail for Luden's. When did you learn this info? Thanks.

Ludens went to Hershey's, then to Pharmacia, then to Pfizer, then to Johnson & Johnson. No wonder you couldn't find anything. Anyways, at the bottom of the page is a number, maybe they can help you. Either that or there may be a number on the bags...

Hi there,

Thought I would update the Hall's Cough Drop discussion.

On October 8, 2008 I received this response to my inquiry from Halls:

>>>All of the Halls products are gluten-free. If any of our products contain gluten, the source of it will be on the ingredients as wheat, rye, barley, etc. If the allergen is not in the product but manufactured in facility that handles the allergen, then the product will state a warning that it may contain trace of the allergen. If there is neither declaration, then the product is free of the allergen.

Thank you for taking the time to contact us. We hope that you will continue to purchase and enjoy our products.

Sincerely,

Consumer Relations
