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!

    • What's an " iodine test"?  Haven't heard doctors doing that to diagnose DH.
    • Hello! I've just been given my blood results and told they are highly suggestive of coeliacs but will have to wait till next month to see the gastroenterologist and who knows how much longer for a biopsy. My igA, igG and tissuetrans igA were all over 250 and tissuetrans igG was the only one that was normal. These results don't mean much to me yet but I'm told they are very high. I'm now quite fearful of how much damage I've gone to myself. I've had stomach problems for 25 years (just turned 40) and have often steered clear of too much bread and pasta for how bloated it made me feel but the symptoms were always vague and inconsistent so I kept eating. I had a couple of boats in the past few months (thanks kids) which I took a lot longer than normal to recover from then last Friday I had a blowout with wine, cheese, crackers, pizza and chocolate cake. I'm sure I've probably had blowouts like that before but I have never felt so sick before and am still slowly recovering. This is what finally prompted me to go back to my GP after being fobbed off so many times over the years. So I guess my question and my concern is whether there is still  chance of a false positive with levels like this? I worry what else it might be if not coeliac. I'm also worried that I may have done so much damage to myself that I will have several disorders going on! Thankyou!!    
    • Here's what the Klondike Bar makers say on the FAQ page of their website (August 2016): Are your products gluten free? Nope. They are not. We have not validated for gluten free. We do not operate allergen-free manufacturing sites, however we do have allergen management programs in all our facilities. The intent of these programs is to avoid unintentional cross-contamination of allergens between products. Our product labels adhere to the FDA’s strict regulations regarding declaration of ingredients and allergens. We do not use the terms “Natural” or “Artificial Flavorings” to hide the existence of any allergens. RECIPES CAN CHANGE. We strongly recommend that allergic consumers refer to ingredient declarations EVERY TIME they purchase processed foods.
    • I tried the iodine test but couldn't leave it on very long because it itched too much. I left it on maybe 30 minutes lol. Did anyone try it and have the same response??
    • Had my scope today. Dr said my esophagus is damaged and stomach inflamed. Waiting on biopsy results. Taking protonic and flagyl and he said to go ahead and try cutting gluten out to see if that helps. Thanks for the feedback everyone!
