I have a list that says the Charm blow pops are gluten-free. I always thought it gum base was fine but it is questionable and you have to check?

Blow Pops are without question gluten-free.

I just went to the safe and forbidden lists here and didn't find gum base listed anywhere. Can you tell us where you saw it? In more than three years I've NEVER seen gum base with gluten.

I'm looking at it right now. The list I printed directly off Celiac.com lists "gum base" in the forbidden category. It is listed right under "ground spices" and right above "hard wheat." This list I'm looking at is the one I printed off here about a year ago, so I will look here on the site now and see if it has since been removed. I swear my eyes aren't playing tricks on me--I'm staring at it right now! lol. I'll see if it's been updated.

Well it's been removed, right between the two things I mentioned, "ground spices" and "hard wheat" there is no longer a listing for "gum base", but it's right here on my hardcopy. Funny, someone must've caught the error and taken it off. One less thing to worry about! Speaking of it, does anyone around here chew gum and if so which brands are safe?

The current list I've looked at several times (including just a minute ago) does not have gum base. Maybe it did at one time but I've nver known gum base to have gluten. It is NOT a concern for us.

We urge all doctors to take time to listen to your patients.. don't "isolate" symptoms but look at the whole spectrum. If a patient tells you s/he feels as if s/he's falling apart and "nothing seems to be working properly", chances are s/he's right!

In spices sometimes wheat flour is used in spices to prevent clumping but most spices I have found to be fine. McCormick spices are gluten free. I use them all the time. :D

Gillian,

I am SO glad you asked this question! I have been so confused about this for the past year! My daughter was diagnosed in March of 04 and I printed up my lists then. Mine also lists Gum Base as a definate No, and so I haven't been able to figure out how gum could possibly be OK! I have heard that Wrigley's gum is gluten-free, but since it listed gum base, I was still scared to let my little girl have any. She will be so happy to chew gum again!

Just thought I would let you know you aren't the only one!
