Altoids Alert
0

5 posts in this topic

Since a well-known friend of ours is having difficulty getting Altoids up in the North :blink: , I thought I would purchase some for her and send them there.

PLEASE NOTE: The tins I purchased of Altoids Smalls specifically state that they contain Wheat Maltodextrin.

The Altoids gum contains Isomalt -- I was a little concerned because I have been chewing that, as well -- but I Google'd it, and found this, so it looks okay:

If you have Altoids Smalls, please check the ingredients on the back. Just trying to keep my Sillyak friends healthy. :P

(And you guys thought I couldn't pull this off without being rediculous, didn't you????)

Just the Smalls? I bought a tin of the regular peppermint ones last week and the ingredient list looked okay. I don't want to give up my Altoids (wah!) so I hope it's just the smalls.

As far as I know, everything else is fine, even the strips. It's just the smalls.

I have also seen them listed with glucose (wheat) on the back recently. Who knew you get glucose from wheat! I do appretiate them labeling throughly though.

you do have to read the ingredients on *everything* including altoids. at least two of their products - the small mints and the mint gum - have wheat. they do label clearly, which is lovely, but you have to read the ingredients.
