I have seen several posts saying they take Tums, but I have not seen them listed as gluten free on any of the sites. Are they and if not are Rolaids? What does anyone take for that gassy feeling after eating?

My understanding is that Tums are NOT gluten free.

Hi Linda:

http://www.glutenfre...gs.com/list.htm

According to this list Tums are gluten-free, I would call the company to double check though.

I've heard on this forum that tums are gluten-free, but I just read on clan thompson's celiac website that they are not and that rolaids are? Is this correct?

I have Clan Thompsans list as well and Tums are not gluten-free. I also have a list that was updated 4/04 and it says Tums are NOT gluten-free. I have been taking them all along up until a few days ago when I found out they are not gluten-free.


Phazyme anti gas softgels are gluten-free.
Rolaids multi symptom are gluten-free too.

They are both gluten-free according to the 2 lists I have.

Can you find phyzyme at a local store? Are regular rolaids gluten-free too?

As is said above, Tums are NOT gluten-free, but Gaviscon are, in all their forms and flavors.

Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh, how frustrating sometimes to figure these things out! I just went out and bought multi symptom rolaids and chucked the tums out just in case.

I am pretty sure that I had a gluten accident this weekend at a restaurant and have had horrible indigestion pain ever since Sunday. I remember reading somewhere on this board that Tums was not gluten-free. Does anyone know what type of medicine I can take for this? The pain is pretty bad. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

Sorry to hear that. I use aloe vera juice - though I'm willing to bet you don't have that hanging around. You can find it at a healthfood shop or vitamins shop (not very tasty though). I use the Market America brand which is strawberry-kiwi and very yummy and doesn't cost any more either.

Also, I like to make some ginger tea. It really helps settle the stomach/intestines, and the more you drink (not just tea, but water in general) the quicker you will flush out the bad stuff.

Hope you are feeling better,
donna

I actually have a bottle of Tums 750s in my hand right now, and there is a tab at the bottom of the back label which clearly states "Gluten Free".

I'm very new to this, but this is what it says on the tums site (www.tums.com) under FAQs.

"Although we do not use gluten as a filler in TUMS, there may be trace amounts of gluten
in TUMS Smoothies Cocoa and Cream flavor via ingredients that are supplied by
outside vendors. Other products of TUMS do not contain gluten. Review the “inactive ingredients”
section on the bottle label to see if the variety you have selected contains gluten."

as for cross contamination, it mentioned nothing under the gluten section, but here is what it said under the dairy section:

"Although we have cleaning procedures in place, we cannot guarantee that some small trace of the
Smoothies Cocoa & Creme or Smoothies Assorted Fruit flavors would not be present in
the other flavors."


i was desperate after eating two slices of gluten free pizza (which i'm thinking wasn't really gluten free) and took the tums.

If you are new to the diet you may be having issues with the dairy in the cheese so the pizza may have been gluten free. Or it could be an item with heavy cross contamination, not knowing if it was homemade or restaurant I really can't answer whether it was gluten that got you or not.
Personally I avoid Tums. I keep a bottle of Pepto Bismal liquid on hand, name brand, and for me that takes care of any stomach pain I have when I accidentally get either gluten or soy and does it with just one dose.

From their website:

"Although we do not use gluten as a filler in TUMS, there may be trace amounts of gluten
in TUMS Smoothies Cocoa and Cream flavor via ingredients that are supplied by
outside vendors. Other products of TUMS do not contain gluten. Review the “inactive ingredients”
section on the bottle label to see if the variety you have selected contains gluten."

Myself, I have peppermint flavored Tums Smoothies in the medicine cabinet, and there is a small blue spot on the bottom of the back label that CLEARLY states "Gluten-Free".
