I'm not aware of a gum that actually contains gluten, but stanger things have happened. I chew Orbit, Trident, and Extra and haven't had a problem.

Funny. I was looking for a breath mint yesterday.... I found maltodextrin in almost all - which in the U.S. Should declare wheat if it's wheat derived. I finally settled on regular Altoids. The small sugar free ones have wheat derived maltodextrin in them. Wintergreen has natural flavors, without clarification. Most other mints I picked up had undeclared natural flavors also.

Didn't check gum, can't chew it because of TMJ.

Maltodextrin should be fine unless it declares (wheat derived). It's the natural flavors that give me pause.

The natural flavors would have to declare wheat. And barley is ALMOST always listed as malt.
