Honey Bee Gardens

Hi Bridget: Most of our products are gluten free, with the exception of our hair care items (shampoo, conditioner and hair spray). The vitamin E used in our lip balm, lip stick, etc. is synthetically derived because of our many customers who have gluten intolerance. If there is a specific product you have questions about, please let me know. Thank you for your email.

Sara Lee

Thank you for visiting the Sara Lee web site. We appreciate your interest in our products and are happy to assist you with your questions and/or concerns. As a rule of thumb all of our products that are just "straight meat" are gluten free. Products that are filled; such as Beer Bratwurst contain gluten, and products that are coated in breading; such as State Fair Corn Dogs and Jimmy Dean Sandwiches and Biscuits. Unfortunately I do not have a listing of gluten free products. We have also started listing the top 8 allergens on our package so gluten will be listed. Sincerely, Paige Johnson Consumer Response Department

transported, we cannot guarantee that a product is gluten-free.

products, please call our Consumer Information Center toll-free at

Tropical Traditions

Hi Bridget! Thanks for your patience as I researched whether or not our products are gluten free. You can be assured that none of the coconut products offered on our site have gluten in them or come into contact with gluten. You may be interested to know they come in glass jars for sizes under 1 gallon. One gallon or more come in plastic pails. For other products on our site we would need to contact each manufacturer with the same question. If you are interested in other products please send us a list of what you are interested in and we will contact the manufacturers for you. We can truly appreciate your needs and hope we can be of assistance to you. Sincerely, Susan Tropical Traditions Customer Service www.tropicaltraditions.com/peace

Helene Curtis

Hi Bridget , Thanks for writing! We do not specifically test our products for the presence of gluten, a sticky protein found in some grains such as wheat. Gluten may be present in products that contain derivatives of wheat, oat, rye, and barley. In labeling our products, our company follows the guidelines established by the International Nomenclature for Cosmetics Ingredients (INCI)process. Therefore, if we use an ingredient derived from a grain such as wheat, oat, rye and / or barley, those names will appear on the label. Example One common example is "Hydrolyzed Wheat Protein" If you see this name on the label, the material was derived from wheat, so the product may contain gluten. We recommend that you consult with your physician as to whether your exposure to grain derivatives from the use of personal care products will cause the symptoms of Celiac-Sprue Disease. We hope this information is helpful, Your friends at Helene Curtis

Olay

Response (Karen) - 11/22/2005 09:26 AM Thanks for contacting Olay, Bridget. We know Celiac is a serious disease, so we want to give you clear information regarding the use of our beauty care products. If wheat and/or gluten aren't directly added to a product by us, these ingredients won't be listed on our packages. Like many companies, we often purchase the scents for fragranced products from outside suppliers, and the components of these substances are proprietary information belonging to those companies. Therefore it's possible that a very small amount (generally parts per million) of gluten may be present. We sought advice from physicians; they told us it would be very unlikely a person with Celiac disease would have a reaction from a trace amount of gluten coming into contact with his skin or hair. This is because wheat, rye, barley and/or gluten generally cause symptoms when they're ingested. Since our beauty care products are designed to be used externally on the skin, their use shouldn't be an issue for someone with this disease. Since gluten sensitivity can vary among people, it would be best if you consulted with your physician about the use of all types of consumable goods, if you haven't already. You might even consider using one of our fragrance free products that doesn't list gluten or wheat extracts on the label. Thanks for getting in touch with us. I hope this response has been helpful to you. For more information about Celiac, you may want to check out http://celiac.com/ and http://celiac.org Karen Olay Team

P.S. Want soft, smooth, revitalized skin? Introducing Olay Regenerist Microdermabrasion & Peel System. This Olay Regenerist System has two powerful steps that actively work together to give you a combination of a microdermabrasion and mini-peel treatment. Still, it's gentle enough to use up to two times a week! Olay...love the skin you're in.

Ocean Spray

November 21, 2005

Dear Bridget:

Thank you for visiting us at www.oceanspray.com.

The protein gluten found in certain grains (wheat, barley, rye and oats or hybrids of these) is a concern for those with Celiac Disease.

Based on documentation from our ingredient suppliers, as well as all of our other beverages and sauces, are free from this type of gluten. Craisins® Trail Mixes and Craisins® Chocolate Covered Cranberries may contain gluten. If you have a particularly acute sensitivity to gluten in foods we suggest you consult your physician for his or her recommendation.

If we can be of any further assistance, please feel free to e-mail us again or contact us by phone at 1-800-662-3263 Monday through Friday 9-4 EST. When responding, please reference the case number located at the bottom of this e-mail.

Thank you,

Wrigley Gum Company

Dear Bridget,

Thank you for writing to inquire about ingredients used in Wrigley

products.

The following is a list of U.S. Wrigley products that remain free of

any wheat, oat, rye or barley gluten:

Wrigley's Spearmint® gum, Freedent® gum, Doublemint® gum, Extra® gum,

Big Red® gum, Eclipse® gum, Juicy Fruit® gum, Eclipse® Flash breath

strips, Winterfresh® gum, Orbit® gum, Winterfresh® Thin Ice breath strips

and Orbit White gum.

If your sensitivity extends to other types of gluten, several of our

brands contain corn syrup, which may have trace amounts of corn gluten in

it. The amount of gluten in one stick is less than 0.2 milligrams, but

if you are extremely sensitive, you may want to consult with your

physician before chewing our brands.

Additionally, no packaging material directly next to our product

contains gluten sources. There may be instances when starches are used on

the label around each individual stick of gum, but these starches are

produced from corn or potatoes, not from wheat, rye, barley, oats, millet

or buckwheat.

We hope this information has been helpful and thanks again for

contacting the Wrigley Company.

Sincerely,

Nancy Cook

Consumer Affairs Representative

Pinnacle Foods

Dear Bridget

Thank you for taking the time to inquire about Pinnacle Foods Corporation and the products we produce which might be gluten-free. We appreciate your interest in our company and our products. At the present time, Vlasic® Pickles, Sauerkraut and Peppers and Log Cabin® Country Kitchen syrup are gluten-free. The vinegar used in production of these items is corn-based, rather than wheat-based. Other items in our product lines (which include Swanson® frozen foods and Open Pit® barbecue sauces) generally contain wheat-based ingredients in the form of modified food starches and other thickening agents. While our manufacturing facilities follow generally accepted good manufacturing practices, we do not have the flexibility of segregating production lines for the exclusive production of wheat-free items. We recommend that you review the list of ingredients on the package prior to purchase to assure that you are meeting your specific dietary needs. Since we are constantly improving our products, ingredients may change from time to time. We appreciate the time you've taken to share your specific concerns with us, because it helps us to become aware of consumer needs. We hope you find this information helpful. Sincerely, Darlene Peters Consumer Response Representative 000568399A

******************************************************

T. Mazetti

Dear Ms. Fritzsch: Thank you for inquiring about our products. We appreciate customers who take the time to tell us their thoughts and concerns. It is the policy of T. Marzetti Company to include all ingredients used in a product on our ingredient declaration per FDA regulations. If gluten or a gluten-containing ingredient is used in a formula, it is our practice to declare this on our ingredient listing. However, we cannot certify our products as gluten free for use by celiac sprue patients, and therefore make no claims to that effect. It is our understanding celiac sprue patients are sensitive not only to gluten but any ingredient that may have been derived from a gluten-containing source material. For instance, distilled vinegar may be fermented from a gluten containing grain. While distilled vinegar contains no gluten, many doctors still feel it is unacceptable to celiac sprue patients. Unfortunately, this makes it very difficult to say a product is gluten free, based on the requirements of celiac sprue. As for modified food starch, a common concern, we generally use waxy maize starches or cornstarch. On rare occasions we may use a potato, rice, or tapioca starch. Again, if gluten or a gluten-containing ingredient is used in a formula, it is our practice to declare this on our ingredient listing. We hope this information is useful to you, and allows you to make the appropriate choice for your needs. Sincerely, Consumer Relations Department T. Marzetti Company Please do not reply to this message. We cannot accept incoming e-mails at this address. Please use the "Contact Us" section on our web site for further correspondence.

I know this is an ancient thread, but I can't seem to find info anywhere else.

My dentist uses Sunstar, Butler brand toothpaste or toothpaste-like stuff to clean my teeth, and the ingredients have artificial color and flavour so they might not be gluten-free, and their website, sunstar.com, doesn't appear to have any contact info.

They also provide the GUM floss and the like, however, on their website Butler has it's own section, separate from GUM products.

Any ideas or help?

What do you tell your dentist about toothpaste etc when you go?

And, to answer my question, I called up Canadian customer service regrading Butler products and the woman on the phone said none of their products contain gluten or latex. I enquired specifically about their Prophy paste (what my dentist uses that I was questioning), but she answered me generally.
