Oh darn. I don't know if I dare use Ricola now :( I loved their Green Tea cough drops. Nothing has ever done as much good for me when Iw as sick.

From their FAQ

http://www.ricolausa.com/faq/4?section=2

Are your products gluten-free?

In the United States, there are no established government standards as to what can be considered gluten-free or what is safe for use in celiac patients. Our products contain less than 0.01% gluten. We urge you to share this information with your doctor or to contact the Celiac Sprue Association of the USA @1-877-CSA-4CSA.

I got this reply from Ricola customer service today (11/6/06) regarding the "starch syrup" listed as an ingredient:

"Starch syrup is an aqueous solution, a mixture of glucose, di- and

polysaccharide, which is made through hydrolysis from starch. As raw

material we use the starch from corn (Zea mays L.)."

Corn! So it seems safe...

Ricola's gluten statement is probably CYA, but venture at your own risk. Halls claims that 100% of their products are gluten-free. Some people have had some problems with them though, so again, at your own risk. I can say for certain that Luden's cough drops are fine, but their medicinal properties are somewhat questionable...
