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!

    • 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 ?
    • I checked the Gluten Free Watchdog (I subscribe) and did not find this  particular product, but found the company's oat bran flakes which did not list any gluten ingrediants, but barley was found in testing well over 20 parts per million.  I would stick with certified gluten-free cereals, personally.  I think it is "hit or miss" on grain products.    
    • It is normal for other intolerances to become apparent once you remove gluten. I don't know why, perhaps as the immune system is free'd from chasing gluten it finds new targets? A lot of coeliacs find they have to cut out dairy as well for example. It's certainly my number one culprit for skin issues.  It also can take time for removing gluten to have its full effect, as antibodies will remain in the body for up to 6 months. So the reaction could still be to gluten in a way. 
    • I did not re-test my antibodies for a full year after diagnosis but I think your daughter should be checked again in 6 months.  If she does have celiac, and I really am sure she does regardless of what this doc seems to think, they should decrease in 6 months.  If she is fast healer, they could potentially be in the normal range but it varies from person to person. She did show damage in her small intestine but at 4 years of age, damage would not have progressed to the point where this doctor could be convinced it is Celiac.  They set the bar way too high. Kind of silly to require you to damage her insides further to prove it to the AMA. I think she should go gluten-free, as you have stated, and re-scope her in 6 months to see how the original damage looks then. If it is gone, then maybe that would convince them. The 4 out 5 criteria is not done in kids because, I am convinced, of liability issues. They just do not want to get sued if by some small chance, they diagnosed someone who did not have Celiac.  I think the odds of that are pretty slim, when you think about it. Even with a misdiagnosis, eating gluten free will never harm anyone. But as children are minors and cannot legally make medical decisions on their own like adults can, that rule is out for them.
