Just a tip here:

I'm not sure if anybody has Posted in the past in regards to "Tom's of Maine" Natural care Toothpaste & Mouthwash, but I had heard about this stuff via the Internet. {it is all natural & "gluten-free."} Well... while out shopping at our local Wal-Mart the other day, I actually got lucky enough to hit-up on some of the "Tom's of Maine" Products! (and heck, I didn't even know they sold this there!) This is what I purchased, & also along with the Price I paid for the items:

Tom's of Maine Natural Cleansing Mouthwash: {Spearmint} 1 pint 8 fl.oz. was $5.82

Tom's of Maine Natural Antiplaque plus Whitening (Gel) Toothpaste: (Peppermint) was $2.97

The Mouthwash comes in a round, clear plastic bottle, & is a completely clear liquid, (looks like water) and let me tell you, that stuff has some "kick" to it!! (it would kill anybody's "garlic & Onion breath!") Laugh!! :D

The Toothpaste came in a box, and the toothpaste tube is inside of it, like regular brands... This is a clear "gel" Toothpaste, and has a wonderfully, strong flavor to it. I was skeptical about buying some of these more "expensive" Products, as I was use to the ole` CHEAP brands, such as Pepsodent, etc; etc;.... but let me tell you, a person doesn't need to use much of these Products, & they tend to go a long ways! I was pleased with my find here, & also very happy that our local Wal-Mart Stored carried this.

If you have not heard of "Tom's of Maine" Natural Products, here is their Web Site link:

I just had to share my new Product search here, & the personal experience I've had with this... it's a good Product for me so far, & takes care of the issues with "gluten" in my mouth!! Anybody else try these same Products before?

I use Tom's toothpaste and floss. Just watch out for the kids orange flavored TP, as it has gluten in it.

Are you referring to the "outrageous orange-mango" for kids? :huh:

I switched from the TOM'S Spearmint to the kids orange-mango and silly strawberry because I got all paranoid about salicylates.

Sheeesh...I kinda got negligent about checking for gluten. :(

I got new blisters on my face and in my mouth + loose stools but I thought I was 100% gluten-free so I figured something else is causing these symptoms.

Ummm...anyways is the orange-mango gluten-free or not. On the website it claims only two of their products contain gluten and neither of those items are toothpaste. :unsure:

The ingredients have no obvious gluten....just "natural flavors".

I only use the Tom's of Maine 'kid' flavors because all the adult flavors contain mannitol (or another sorbitol like artificial sweetner) which gives me intense cramps and bloating and diarrhea (which I don't even get from gluten or dairy or soy). I read in 'Dangerous Grains' how celiacs with 'leaky gut syndrome' are often sensitive to the 'tol' artificial sweetners. So perhaps that explains my problem with adult flavors.

BURDEE

Ok...I'm answering my own post. I checked out TOM's website and it doesnt say anything about the toothpaste containing gluten. http://www.tomsofmaine.com/toms/ifs/gluten.asp

I lokked at the Delphi list and this is what it says. "Note that the orange-mango toothpaste is being considered gluten-y because the orange flavor is grain distilled rather than steam distilled."

I thought we didnt have to worry about anything thats been distilled? I'm so confused. :unsure:
