Colgate-Palmolive, as of last year, was not adding gluten intentionally to any of their products. However, for some products they added a caveat that they can't "guarantee that the ingredients we use are not exposed to any gluten." Palmolive soap is one of the ones listed in the 'can't guarantee' category. Some people are comfortable and still use it, some don't. I know many people use Dawn, or 7th Generation dish soap.

Tide is supposed to be gluten free

Sensodyne pronamel is supposed to be gluten free but the company also states that the "raw materials suppliers cannot guarantee there's no gluten contamination in them." (http://celiacdisease.about.com/od/GlutenFreePersonalCareProducts/a/Gluten-In-Toothpaste-Should-I-Worry.htm)

'Fraid I don't know about the rest, but you can contact the companies and they should be able to tell you, hopefully. :-)

I've been searching to find out whether Swanson's aseptic organic vegetable broth (not the canned, but in the waxed box) is gluten free. I've found lists that state their canned vegetable broth is gluten free, but can I assume the aseptic box container is also? I am relatively new to the whole "gluten free" thing on behalf of my best friend and the ingredients list says "flavors". Thank you anyone who can help.

Swanson broths are made by Campbell's. They will clearly disclose any gluten source in the ingredient list.

But, please also note that Campbell's US and Campbell's Canada have a very different list of gluten free options. If you contact them by phone, they will send you their gluten free listings by snail mail, with several coupons of their products that, for the large part, are NOT gluten free. But...I guess it's the thought that counts. :P

I buy Swanson's Chicken Broth (in the box) frequently. As Peter mentioned, read the ingredients, as any form of gluten should be listed if added.

Most of your concern should reside with your shampoo and soap bar, as both could find their way into your mouth. The other ingredients would most likely not contain any gluten. But, you are wise to inquire. :)

There is generally an 1-800 number on the back of the product, to find a customer rep who could answer your questions.

Okay… so I guess even though it has "flavors" listed in the ingredients list, if those flavors come from an allergen source (in this case gluten), they have to disclose it by also stating it contains gluten? I'll go ahead and call them now that it's Monday.

Thank you!

    • Hi, I've never been on a forum before but thought I might find some answers here.  I have never been tested for celiac but a nurse practitioner I saw a few years ago told me she thought I would benefit from a gluten free diet.  At first, I thought I could never do this but after some encouragement I did try.  I did feel much better after going gluten free.  She never tested me for celiac. I turned 50 years old last year and I had a colonoscopy for the first time and had three polyps removed.  The surgeon said that my colon looked like I was a chronic laxative user.  I haven't used a laxative for a very long time.  I was at the time drinking a natural tea to help me to have bowel movements.  Before starting the tea I had always had difficulty with bowel movements and never had them once a day but with the tea I was able to go once a day. At the end of last month I developed severe pain after I would eat (I had my gallbladder removed at the age of 19).  One night the pain got so bad my husband had to drive me to the ER.  My liver functions were high as well as a few other things.  They did a CT scan of my abdomen and pelvis that showed wall thickening of my transverse colon and minimal irregularity involving the transverse colon.  My descending and sigmoid colon were collapsed.  There were a few tiny mesenteric lymph nodes present on the right.  They diagnosed me officially with colitis but said that most likely I had a gallstone (even though I don't have a gallbladder) that had come from the liver and had gotten stuck in the common bile duct (it did not show up on the CT scan).  I usually have a high ferritin level too.  I've been home from the hospital stay for about a month now and still have tenderness in the epigastric area. Some of this may not have anything to do with celiac but was wondering if anyone has been diagnosed with celiac by CT scan or colonoscopy or if anyone has had the same problems that I have had and found out what has caused it.  I cannot see the gastroenterologist who saw me in the hospital for a couple of months.  Can you have celiac and not have diarrhea as I am just the opposite? Any help would be appreciated!  Thanks!  
    • I had an acne flair up after going gluten free but it ended up improving and some long-term back acne I had been dealing with actually went away.  I think going gluten free was a shock to my system and at first I actually felt worse but after about a month things got better. 
    • Ok guys!   The original post was 3 years ago!  Ingredients, manufacturing methods,  labeling, etc.  may have changed during that time.  A lot of companies have really come a long way on gluten-free in the last 3-4 years.
    • They didn't suggest any probiotic support. Ultimately the side-effects of this drug stabilized approaching the end of the course of treatment, though after it was finished, I was perhaps a bit improved, but no profound symptom resolution for me. Darn! The search goes on.
    • Thankyou I have found that I became intolerant of dairy and having cut it out feeling better but if I come into accidental consumption the symptoms are similar to that of gluten but not as severe .. Patience ay ?
