    Do you have questions about celiac disease or the gluten-free diet?

Are Tic-tacs gluten-free?

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know if Lifesavers, Fruity Certs, or Tic Tacs (all flavors) are gluten free?

I tried to locate the information on their websites and have had no such luck.

Thank you.

Well........ okay......... this DOES seem to be my area of expertise, so::rolleyes:

I remember seeing somewhere that Tic Tac's are NOT GLUTEN FREE.

Here is a list of, ahem, mints that are okay (note: list is in alphabetical order and in NO WAY indicates personal preference):

Altoids (Kraft) (Altoids.com) (800-543-5335) (vw=2004) (http://www.kraftfoods.com/) Read the label. Wheat, oats, rye and barley will be listed on the label of Kraft products that contain these ingredients. They will not be hidden under words such as “natural flavors”, etc. Kraft considers distilled vinegar, no matter the source, gluten-free.

Breath Saver Mints (Hershey Foods) (800-468-1714) (00/00/00)

Sugar-free: iced mint, mint cinnamon, peppermint, spearmint, vanilla mint, wintergreen

Life Savers (Nabisco--Kraft) (800-543-5335) (http://www.kraftfoods.com/) (vw=2004)

Read the label. Wheat, oats, rye and barley will be listed on the label of Kraft products that contain these ingredients. They will not be hidden under words such as “natural flavors”, etc. Kraft considers distilled vinegar, no matter the source, gluten-free.

Hope this helps. B)

THat seems to say that Tictacs are gluten-free as of April 2003. I could not find any info on thier web site, so that post is all I can point to at this time.

I do want to point out that the mini altoids and the altoids gum both list wheat as an ingredient.

Sucks, cause I really liked the gum.

Last time I checked (which was a few months ago) the cinnamon altoids gum flavor didn't have wheat in it, while the peppermint did. I totally don't get it, but that's what the labels told me.

Last time I checked(less than a week) the regular size peppermint and cinnamon altoids are gluten free. Tic Tacs are gluten free as well.

According to their web site...

Tic Tacs contain corn gluten, but not gliadin gluten from wheat, barley or rye grains.

Hope this clears up the Tic Tac issue! :)

They contain corn gluten as of 8/8/10.

http://tictac.com.au/faqs/

That link is from Australia, and may not apply elsewhere.

Corn gluten is safe for celiacs. "Gluten" is defined by a chemist as the protein (prolamine) from a grain--any grain. As seen by a dietitian, or a celiac, it refers to the proteins in wheat, rye and barley (oats may or may not be included).

Also, please be aware that this topic is from January 2006, and product ingredients may have changed in four and a half years.
