Does Toothpaste Have Gluten?
0

7 posts in this topic

My SIL said she heard it does, but on my toothpaste it pretty much says flouride. Does anyone know if toothpaste has gluten?

Does anyone know if ventolin inhalers have gluten. I can't use the no brand one because it gives me the shakes like you wouldn't believe. I can take VENTOLIN though and I don't get the same side effects from it, does anyone else have this issue?

Thanks to anyone who can give me any insite on these two issues.

As for the toothpaste, crest toothpastes are all gluten free. I think colgate is as well, but you might want to double check on that.

According to this website, http://glutenfreedrugs.com/list.htm, the inhaler is okay, too. Check out the site, it's been a great help to me!

Best,

Lisa

I use crest wtih no problems. However, somone said that one of Tom's toothpaste had gluten. I never used Tom's so I do not know this for sure. Nor did I look into it to see if it was correct. Plus that was several years ago and things change. What toothpaste do you use?

I use crest and it doesn't seem to bother me, but I've heard Tom's Of Maine is gluten free so I bought some, but the taste was HORRIBLE - IMO LOL!! I'm glad to hear that crest isn't suppose to have gluten. I use the cool mint gel though so I hope that one is also gluten free!!

There are two toothpastes I know of that contain gluten - Sensodyne and one other sensitive tooth toothpaste (not crest or colgate or tom's).

I use Tom's. This is from their website,

"Only two of our products contain gluten:

Natural Moisturizing Hand Soap liquids (Contains wheat protein)

Natural Moisturizing Body Wash (Contains wheat protein)

All other Tom's of Maine products are free of any ingredient derived from wheat, rye, barley, or oats, nor are our ingredients processed with derivatives of those grains. As such, they should not be considered a potential source of gluten.

The glycerin we use in our products is derived from coconut, palm kernel oil, and palm oils. It is not derived from corn, is not genetically modified, and is not a potential source of gluten."

I recently contacted Tom's to check if their toothpaste was not only gluten-free but casein-free and soy-free as well. They confirmed it is gluten-free and CF, but it may include soy. Here is their response:

>> Dear Leonard,

>> Thank you for your e-mail. All Tom's of Maine Toothpastes are gluten-free and casein-free. All of

>> I hope this information is helpful. Please let me know if I can assist with anything else.
