Maltitol is in trident splash gum.

Maltol was in the green candied cherries I was going to buy for my fruitcake (but not in the red ones???)

I'm in Canada.

I had to look that one up last week...I'd bought some peel-u chewing gum, and was unsure about the maltitol...so I looked it up on the fobidden/safe lists on this web site...it was listed as safe, no gluten.

One is a sweetener and the other is used for aroma. You can google them and find out more. They're gluten-free.

most sugar alcohols (all of the 'ol' ingredients) cause excess gas - there are generally warnings, and they are used in a lot of diabetic and sugar free candies. eat with caution!

trident gum is gluten-free.
