According to the Clan Thompson Smart Drug List, Phillips Milk of Magnesia (all flavors) status is "UNKNOWN" - the company has stated that the product has no gluten-containing ingredients, but it is made in a facility that makes gluten containing products and could be subject to CC - no statement appears about cleaning the lines or anything. I would not trust it.

Milk of Magnesia is made basically for the magnesium, which is a very very common deficiency for Celiacs. Many of us take a magnesium supplement, including myself. I use a powdered form mixed in orange juice. The acid of the juice greatly enhances the absorption. There are many forms, and I've basically found that magnesium citrate and magnesium carbonate work well, and don't taste bad in the juice. The NOW Foods brand has both of these types.
