Trident Gum In The Eu

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

I researched and seen many places stating that all Trident Gums are gluten free. But I also found a few (very few actually) forum posts where people complaint about Trident.

Today I had just 2 of those (Trident Fresh to be precise), and i had a "flare up" almost instantly.

Is everyone SURE it's gluten free?

I used to buy their "Dental+" brand before and I never had problems with it (or if I did I don't remember or didn't associate the problems with it). But today with "Trident Fresh - Spearmint" I had problems. Not much of GI symptoms... but I guess most of you know what I am talking about. I am at a point where I can feel when I'm glutened. And I'm sure I was. But I'd like to sort out which ingredient made me have a reaction.

I am thinking about Gum Base.

Here's why:

http://www.patentstorm.us/patents/5424081.html

They claim: "A non-adhesive chewing gum base comprising a gluten component and a tannin which promotes cross-linking among gluten proteins forming said gluten component."

I guess I also seen this "Gum base" listed somewhere on Celiac.com.

So, in your opinion... is this it? I also found Maltitol there, but I guess this is on our safe side if i am not mistaken.

I found many pages claiming that Trident was gluten free but, is the composition the same in Europe and the US?

70% of the internet is of the US heheh. And it never hurts to ask!

Thanks a lot boys and gals!

Hi-I am such a gum girl and have really missed my gum. I to read about gum base and it is in all gums ;o( I found last night on the front page to Celiac where you can purchase food and there is a new gluten-free gum. It has gum base but the state that it is natural so I guess it makes some difference???? Anyway, thought I would pass that on. I think it is only around 1.00 for a pack....Liv :D

I chew Trident without issues. Many people do on this forum, I believe. I recall reading that one of their Whitening ones is not glutenfree.


Gluten-free, Vegan
