Toothpast, Dental Floss, Dill Pickles ;o)

Recommended Posts

I wonder if there are any toothpasts or dental flosses that have gluten in them/on them?

Or all they all safe?

Also, does anyone know of any dill pickles that are gluten free?

Thanks!

Crest toothpaste is gluten free. I know there is at least one that's not, maybe Sensodyne??? I'm not positive. Oral-B will NOT gaurantee that their products are gluten free, so I personally stear clear. As for pickels, I know there are safe ones, but I can't think of brand names right now.

I find it so hard to stay clear of Gluten. I haven't done this more than 4 months but I feel gluten is hidden in so much stuff it isn't even funny.

Okay, so Crest is safe.

I might have been glutened myself with toothpast too so far.. :huh:

Thanks for the reply!

I get canker sores sometimes and try to use toothpast without the sulfates. I guess I should stop using the Rembrandts one then (Oral-B brand).

There is another one but I don't know the name now...

I will get back on that.

Thanks again. :)

Last I heard Vlasic, Claussen and Mt. Olive are all gluten-free - except Mt. Olive's hot dog relish, sweet India relish and sugar free gherkins.

Colgate will not guarantee gluten-free. <_<

I emailed Rembrandts but since their website isn't even up an running yet I have no idea if/when they'll respond. Do you still have the box the toothpaste came in? If it has a 1-800# that would be the quickest way to be absolutely sure. :D

I have read before that Sensodyne may not be gluten-free. But I've never looked into it.

Colgate will not guarantee gluten-free.
Really? Where did you hear about that? That's what I'm using now! :o

Thanks for that list. I also think it may explain a lot. I didnt know Palmolive might not be gluten free. That is what I am using now! darn it. I was using Crest. Anyone know about Aqua Fresh?? We just bought it the other day and its all I have now.

I think I remember reading that Aquafresh is safe, I've used it with no problems, but I didn't used to be very sensitive, so... Who knows... I would call the number on the tube.

Yes, it's on the new Delphi list -

Aquafresh (http://www.aquafresh.com/faq.aspx)

(vw=2/24/06)

“Aquafresh® toothpaste does not contain

gluten.”

I'm using Crest with no problems. But I might have had a reaction to Aquafresh. But now it might just be the vitamins I'm talking (Centrum mulitvitamin, anyone know if they are gluten-free?), so now I don't know if it was the toothpaste or the vitamins or both. :unsure:

I can't help but notice that Palmolive dish soap is not on this list. Does that mean that it's NOT gluten-free and they know it?

"However, we cannot guarantee that the ingredients used are not exposed to any glutens."

Folks this is your standard CYA. And think about it for a minute, what mainstream company can you name that actually GUARANTEES something is gluten-free? They can't unless they control every single step of the process for every single ingredient. Even then something could happen. There are no guarantees.

When you see statement like the one from Colgate, the product is absolutely safe unless somewhere an ingredient is accidentally contaminated. This is the same chance you take any time you eat or use a processed product. You take a much higher chance if you eat out.

Toothpaste is pretty much universally gluten-free. It's just not something to be concerned about.

"I can't help but notice that Palmolive dish soap is not on this list. Does that mean that it's NOT gluten-free and they know it?"

No, it most likely means nobody called Palmolive specifically before this list came out. The list is done completely by volunteers and there's no effort to call every company about every product.

I've never heard of a dish soap that has gluten.

I've been using Colgate since I was a kid. I'm not switching. I agree this is a CYA response. They just don't really know what gluten is imho... any time you use a processed prepackaged product you run the risk of cc even slight. I doubt seriously that toothpaste is an issue here.

I think this must be the first time in years I am not getting any canker sores in my mouth while using a sulfate containing tooth paste. :) Maybe it was the gluten.

Tom's of Maine is gluten-free and has all natural ingredients. Their dental floss as well. Seventh Generation dish soap is great, though a bit pricey, and it is not petroleum- based so much better for the environment.
