Hall's Cough Drops

15 posts in this topic

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.googlepages.com/newbiesurvivalkitfiles

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

    • Oh, Trish at the GlutenFreeWatchDog tested Planter's honey roasted peanuts three years ago.  The can did not state gluten-free, but showed no gluten ingrediants (per Kraft policy).  Test result: less than 5 part per million which is pretty much gluten-free.  
    • What if it were something else that glutened you?  Maybe you ate too much of a good thing?  I once (three months post dx) ate too much gluten-free fried chicken, vomited, passed out and fractured my back (osteoporosis) in the process.  Paramedics, ER doc and Cardio all thought I was having a heart attack.   No.  It was sheer gluttony and bad bones.  Not good to overload with a damaged gut.    Maybe you did get some contaminated nuts.  Afterall, anything processed is suspect.  What might be well tolerated by some, might be too much for others.  We all have our various levels of gluten intolerance.   The old 20 parts per million is just a guideline, but science does not really know (lack of funding......doe anyone really care enough to find out?)  My hubby has been gluten-free for 15 years.  When I was first diagnosed, I tried to eat the gluten-free foods that I normally gave him.   Problem was he was healed and I was not.  Things like Xanthan Gum in commercial processed gluten-free breads make me feel like I have been glutened, but it is just (and still is) an intolerance.  So no bread for me unless I make it myself using a different gum.   Too lazy, so I do without.   so, ask your doctor if you really want to know or lay off the cashews and test them again in a month using a certified gluten-free nut.  I wish this was easier!    
    • I have intolerances to a few foods now, so I was wondering about that.. I love cashews though, and a month or two ago I was eating them all the time with no problems at all. I mean, could I really have developed an intolerance to them since then? I don't know if they're made on shared lines (it didn't say on the package so I assumed they weren't), but I'll give them a call. I'm really, really sensitive to cross contamination. Even if something is just made in the same facility (but not on shared lines) it will make me sick. If that's not it, then I'm not really sure
    • Research with KP and find a celiac-savvy GI in your area ( read the biographies). and ask your PCP/GP for a referral to that specific GI (not his buddy).  Ask the GI for the rest  of the celiac panel or proceed with an endoscopy/biopsies -- 4 to six.  Keep eating gluten daily until all testing is complete.  Document and request in writing.  Do not worry about symptoms.  There are over 300 of them and some celiacs have none!   Research all that you can about celiac disease.  The University of Chicago has a great celiac website that has testing Information etc.   Poet me know how it works out.  Hope you feel better soon!  
    • I react to both wheat and barley.  I've opted to just go completely gluten free, for the sake of simplicity and my sanity.  I don't have a diagnosis of celiac disease, but I strongly suspect it.  Unfortunately, I'm not willing to endure the misery of staying on gluten long enough to pursue further testing.  I just know I need to avoid the gluten grains, so I do.
