I've been chewing Big Red with no problems for the past few months.
U.S. Wrigley Products - Per company representative, the following is a list of U.S. Wrigley products that remain free of any wheat, oat, rye or barley gluten:
Wrigley's Spearmint gum
Big Red gum
Juicy Fruit gum
Eclipse Flash breath strips
Winterfresh Thin Ice breath strips
Orbit White gum
If your sensitivity extends to other types of gluten, several of our brands contain corn syrup, which may have trace amounts of corn gluten in it. The amount of gluten in one stick is less than 0.2 milligrams, but if you are extremely sensitive, you may want to consult with your physician before chewing our brands.
Additionally, no packaging material directly next to our product contains gluten sources. There may be instances when starches are used on the label around each individual stick of gum, but these starches are produced from corn or potatoes, not from wheat, rye, barley, oats, millet or buckwheat.
We hope this information has been helpful and thanks again for contacting the Wrigley Company.
