Please give us a source for this info. In 9 years I've NEVER heard of Colgate containing gluten.

That is what I call an honest answer, but not one that worries me. What it means is that they don't test for gluten contamination (no mainstream company does), and thus can make no legal guarantee. It does *NOT* mean that the products are inherently unsafe.


Unfortunately for those of us who are extremely sensitive to gluten ANY cross-contamination can be a problem. And while I'd prefer to think that people/companies are being honest and merely practicing a little CYA, I have had some experiences where this is not the case.

As for Sensodyne....I have been coughing for about a year now, worse and worse, mostly when I lay down at night. (I went gluten-free just over a year ago). None of my doctors have shown any concern or answers. I just get this annoying tickle in my throat. I had given up ALL gluten-free products except Sensodyne. I'm now a Crest and Aquafresh customer. Cough gone!

I was getting reactions from Sensodine Pronamel. I really needed it because of enamal loss, but have switched to Crest regular.
Wanted to mention too, be sure you have a new toothbrush. A lot of people don't think about it, but your old one has to be contaminated?

I am extremely sensitive myself and use SENSODYNE pronamel with no trouble whatsoever.

But if eliminating it has helped you, that's a good thing.

No mainstream manufacturer does. They don't guarantee because they don't test, and a guarantee would expose them to legal liability for an error by one of their suppliers. The products are gluten-free. Focus on what guarantee actually means.

Hi Rachel!
I have Sjogren's Syndrome, along with Celiac and suffer from dry mouth. I use Biotene mouthwash and although it is specifically made for those with dry mouth, it has a nice minty flavor that leaves a refreshed taste in the mouth. It also contains the enzymes that are found in saliva to protect your teeth against decay because those with dry mouth are lacking in saliva production. Anyone can use it and it is also alcohol free, which I really like. Let's face it...I want alcohol in my red wine, not in my mouthwash! :P

Hope this helps.

I saw several places where people are using Toms toothpaste when asked if it has soy in it. I emailed the company and got a reply just yesterday that Toms toothpaste DOES have soy in it...it is in the glycern that is one of their first ingredients.
