Are original or berry ricolas cough drops good to go? I didn't see the bag said anything about gluten-free and there were two ingredients that I was unsure about, the starch syrup and the Carmel flavoring.

I have had three different flavors of Ricola cough drops this week with no problem other than a possible sugar headache from so many of them.  It could just be a sick headache though.

Great so they are safe! Good because I bought a bag and jab been suffering with a sore throat so this will definitely soothe it. Thanks!

I have a question about the starch syrup on the website. I just sucked on a ricola and am scared because I read this what does this mean.

Wheat starch can be gluten-free.  The amount in a cough drop is very very small.

So that means 20ppm or less for the cough drop? So it is safe? Does anyone know of any other cough drops?

ARE RICOLA PRODUCTS GLUTEN-FREE?

Ricola products are below the limits for gluten established by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and Swiss Celiac Association and are therefore considered gluten free. The limits are a maximum of 20 mg gluten per kilogram (20 parts per million) of finished product. Product that is within this limit may be considered gluten-free by the FDA, and, suitable for celiac patients according to the Swiss Celiac Association. We urge you to share this information with your doctor or contact the Celiac Sprue Association of the USA @1-877-CSA-4CSA (1-877-272-4272).

Did you see this, it's on their page. :)
