Childrens' Toothpaste

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone,

Just curious what toothpaste you use for your children. I picked up Colgate bubble gum; called the company and they said they don't intentionally add gluten but they cannot be sure that there other ingredients have not come in contact with gluten. What do you think of this statemtent?

Thanks,

Natalie

I'm suprized by that because I called Colgate, maybe a month ago and they happily assured me that all of their toothpastes were gluten-free.

Hi Missy's Mom,

Are you from the United States? I am from Canada, so maybe it is different here. Thanks for your response.

Yes, I'm in the U.S. Maybe that explains the difference.

I use Disney's Finding Nemo toothpaste for my son. It has lots of chemicals, but nothing that seems like it would contain gluten. Although I must say the ingredients list is crazy :blink: .

Hi,

This is the exact toothpaste that I phoned about. They can't be sure that any of their ingredients have come in contact with gluten. I asked for a list and there are no gluten ingredients in it. Now I'm not sure what to do.

I am in the US and when I called Colgate I received 2 different answers also.

We use Crest, I called a couple times and received the same answer - it is gluten-free.

We also use Listerine Agent Blue, if you haven't heard of it, you use it before brushing and it dyes the bad plaque areas so you can put more concentration in those areas. My daughter and I both have celiac disease and it seems fine, unfortunately I can't remember if I called or if my husband called, but I'll double check.

Also, do you have an equivalent to Celiac Sprue Association in Canada? I called them (CSA in U.S) today about a bonne bell incident (you can see it under Food, products...Bonne bell) and they have a book of all tested foods (they test in their own lab) that are gluten free. You can buy it for ~$30.00 US and evry year it is updated.

Good luck,

Jacqui


IBS 1994

Endometriosis

Hashimoto's auto immune disease

Diverticulosis

Celiac disease April 2006 - neuro symptoms I am assuming from celiac disease

HLA DQ 2 (celiac disease) and HLA DQ 6 (GS) either way my parents made sure I had something!

Insomnia

Hyperflexibility

Daughter 6 y/o (5 at diagnosis) celiac disease via labs (all >100) and flattened biopsy. NO symptoms!!

Daughter 8 y/o with BM ="C" since birth and breast fed, osteopenia, SEVERE eczema up to 5 y/o, now on and off (-) via labs and biopsy. HLA DQ 2 and HLA DQ 8! and possibly ADHD.

Son 3 y/o also HLADQ2 AND DQ 8! Negative panel

Husband MEXICAN and he has DQ 8! His family refuses all and anything with celiac disease, same with his PCP!

"What doesn't kill us makes us stronger..." Right? I think that's the saying.

Hi Jacqui,

Glad to hear I am not the only one getting different answers from Colgate!

I think I'll try the Listerine.

I didn't even think about contacting the Canadian Celiac Association... boy, I feel silly now :unsure:
