Any suggestions? Turns out i have an oral sensitivity to xylitol and normally chew orbit gum, but i have to stop

are there any gums out there that dont have any artificial sweetners?

Also are Tic Tacs safe for celiacs?

thx

Hate to sound harsh, but have you considered going cold turkey on the gum for awhile? Your profile indicates you have a number of unresolved stomach issues, and while gum cannot fairly be said to cause any of them, it certainly won't help either. Gum and mints are wholly processed Frankenstein creations. Chew on mint leaves or something instead.

Not harsh at all- i have been trying to cut out gum, but im so used to chewing on it that its difficult to go cold turkey. my mouth tends to get dry & pasty when i talk and i work with people so i always need to have my mouth moist otherwise it gets uncomfortable to speak

You might want to look into Biotene products. You should be able to find them in a drug store. They are supposed to help with dry mouth. My dentist gave me a sampler with mouthwash, toothpaste and a gel that you can use. I don't know all the ingredients but I do know it is gluten free.

According to the tic tac faq section some flavors have xylitol. Have you tried erythritol?
