New Toothpaste Causing A Glutening?

Recommended Posts

I'm just wondering if anyone thinks they might have gotten glutened by new Colgate Advanced Sensitive + Whitening toothpaste.  My husband bought this by accident, and suddenly I was getting symptoms.  It's the only thing I could identify as being different, so I just stopped using it and the symptoms went away.  No idea if this is the culprit as I do eat out a lot at restaurants and am trying lots of new foods since I'm only 3 months post diagnosis.

 

Couldn't find anything on the Colgate website to confirm or deny it -- so I thought I'd ask here.  Anyone else get glutened by this toothpaste?

 

Thanks.

I have yet to find a Colgate or Crest toothpaste with gluten.  I think if you are only 3 months in and eating out a lot in restaurants, it would be more likely from that than your toothpaste.  You may have been glutened by cc a number of times and started to feel the effects from accumulated exposure.  You can always call Colgate to confirm but most companies will not 100% guarantee due to liability reasons.  They do not test, as far as I know.

If you use the FAQs on their website which is almost always the most reliable way to get quick information from any company who makes this sort of information available, it is listed. I simply typed "gluten" into the FAQ search box and this is the reply I got after selected Oral Care Products:

 

 

We certify that all Colgate Toothpastes with the exception of Ultrabrite Toothpastes (which are currently under evaluation) are gluten-free.

While it isn't out of the realm of possibility that you could be having some sort of reaction to your toothpaste if you have an intolerance to an ingredient in it, it isn't a gluten reaction. During that time did you do anything different in regards to your habits  that you don't do otherwise such as store your toothbrush with a gluten eaters? Or did you share the tube of toothpaste and the gluten eater has a habit of smearing it on so hard they touch the tube to the brush? Other people may call me paranoid, but I don't share a tube of toothpaste with my husband or store our toothbrushes together.
