Just wondering if the Caltrate Chewable were safe.

I have taken others for most my life, but now I am giving them to my kids and we all like the chewables..but want to know if anyone here has input on whether they are gluten-free or not..

I found this by googling caltrate and gluten. It appears to be safe. If your a vegetarian though the gelatin comes from beef.

Is Caltrate gluten-free?
