are tic tacs gluten free??

i've checked on the website.... no info whatsoever. can't find a number to call. i've even posted on this website but no one's answered. seriously, i just need a yes or a no... tic tacs contain dextrin and starch, neither say where their original source is from.

I remember a few years ago I was trying to get in contact with the Tic-Tac company for a project we were doing at school. I don't remember what the reason was but they were extemely difficult to track down. I am thinking that it was such a small company that they didn't have a web page or 800 number listed anywhere. I believe they are one of the few companies that make only that one product.

I know that doesn't help with trying to find out whether or not they have gluten in them but maybe it explains why you can't find the info and no one else here knows either.

Good luck!!

Hi there.

I have no positive proof of Tic Tacs being gluten-free, except the fact that my mother, who is extremely sensitive to any gluten eats them without a problem. She was so bad before diagnosis and going on the diet, that any gluten has her sick for a couple of days, so I usually feel safe if my mom can eat somthing.
Hope this helps a little.

too funny... I had my first appt with a nutritionist at the Celiac Disease Center in NYC. She started rambling off a bunch of normal candies that are definitely gluten free. I immediately thought of this post!
