Hi all, can anyone recommend a safe gum or breath mint that I can get in Atlantic Canada? Preferably without Aspartame...

Thanks! :)

I use Altoids. I know they are gluten-free although I read somewhere that their gum is NOT gluten-free.

Here is a list from delphi:

I have not tried any gum as I don't really like gum.......

Altoids is made by Kraft and they have a very good policy of listing gluten.....

A favorite of mine is now off-limits, Xylichew. I am hypoglycemic and so don't use sugared gums, nor can I use artificial sweeteners. Xylichew is sweetened with xylitol. I wrote the company and here's the response:

Our chewing gum is not 100% guaranteed gluten free. When I contacted our manufacturer they let me know that they knew that nearly all ingredients were gluten free however there were a couple that they could not say for sure.  I'm not aware of them using their machinery to manufacture items with gluten in them so it's hard for me to say.  If you have any other questions please let me know.

So this was a major disappointment for me. I'm going to check on Peelu, the other one I like to use, but if no on that, I think I'm out of luck on gum.

I've asked about this on another celiac list and was told to avoid "sorbitol", I guess because it has gluten in it? But, I thought I saw sorbitol in the ingrediens list for Altoids. does anyone know about sorbitol, or if altoids are or are not gluten free?

thank you -- susan flinn

sorbitol is a sugar. it is not associated with gluten.

I have only used Spry mints and gum exclusive for the past 3 years. Sugar Free, and Gluten Free. I gotta say out of all the mints they offer I love the lemon, berry, and cinnamon mints over the wintergreen, spearmint, and peppermint. You can buy them in bulk cheap and get like a couple  month supply that way also.
