I have been chewing Big Red made by Wrigley's, which from my understanding is gluten-free. However, I am rechecking all of my ingredients and foods to make sure I am not missing something, and have not been able to verify this. Just curious if anyone knows and what you like to chew.

Yep...I heard about Wrigley's from a nutritionist...I also heard that Wrigley's was the only gluten-free gum.....then again, I've never heard of some of the gums you mentioned, so maybe the nutritionist didn't know about them, either.

I was just wondering if anyone else has reacted to Trident gum? I've been completely gluten-free and milk/lactose free for awhile now, and today I had two pieces of Trident. I'm feeling pretty icky tonight! I thought Trident was okay?

I have ALWAYS reacted very badly to Trident because of the sorbitol (the indigestible sugar substitute). I would get intense cramping pains and diarrhea, very much like a lot of people get celiac symptoms, but my celiac symptoms were always delayed cramping/bloating and NEVER diarrhea (just the opposite :o ). I now stay FAR away from any sugar free gums and just chew Dentyne Original flavor (I hate those new sugar pellets they recently added) or Bubble Yum Original Flavor.

don't forget that the recaldent found in some gums is a milk derivative, so if you're sensitive to casein (not just lactose intolerant, I think), you will react to it.

Tarnalberry: OOOPPSS! Is recaldent included in Dentyne and Bubble Yum as well? I could only see: sugar, gum base, glucose syrup, artivicial and natural flavoring, softening (including soy), BHT and red 40 lake, on Dentyne. Don't have any bubble gum in the house. Which of those ingredients (if any) would include recaldent? BTW what IS recaldent? Maybe I'd better hide the rest of my Dentyne pack until I know (I think I had 4 pieces yesterday and I'm STILL having mild symptoms, tho' most have disappeared). :o Thanks for the heads up.

    • It seems like you really need a concrete or near concrete answer so I would say maybe you ought to get the gene testing. Then you can decide on the gluten challenge.   Thanks! I am convinced our dogs are there waiting for us. Meanwhile they are playing, running, laughing, barking & chasing. I have another favorite quote dealing with dogs: "If a dog will not come to you after having looked you in the face, you should go home & examine your conscience."  ~~~ Woodrow Wilson ~~~
    • I can't help thinking that all of this would be so much easier if the doctor I went to 10 years ago would have done testing for celiac, rather than tell me I probably should avoid gluten. He was looking to sell allergy shots and hormone treatment, he had nothing to gain from me being diagnosed celiac. I've been messing around ever since, sort-of-most-of the time being gluten free but never being strict about it. I really feel like three months of eating gluten would do my body a lot of permanent damage. I've got elevated liver enzymes for the third time since 2008 and no cause can be found which might be good, I guess. I wonder if it would be reasonable to do the HLA testing first, to decide if I really need to do the gluten challenge. If the biopsy is negative, that is. Squirmingitch, love your tag line about dogs in heaven. We lost the best dog ever last December. I sure hope all my dogs are there waiting for me!
    • Most (90%-95%) patients with celiac disease have 1 or 2 copies of HLA-DQ2 haplotype (see below), while the remainder have HLA-DQ8 haplotype. Rare exceptions to these associations have been occasionally seen. In 1 study of celiac disease, only 0.7% of patients with celiac disease lacked the HLA alleles mentioned above. Results are reported as permissive, nonpermissive, or equivocal gene pairs. From: http://www.mayomedicallaboratories.com/test-catalog/Clinical+and+Interpretive/88906  
    • This is not quite as cut & dried as it sounds. Although rare, there are diagnosed celiacs who do not have either of those genes. Ravenwoodglass, who posted above, is one of those people. I think she has double DQ9 genes? Am I right Raven?  My point is, that getting the gene testing is not an absolute determination either way.
    • Why yes it is! jmg and myself are NCIS, I mean NCGS specialist/experts or is it NCGI people ourselves. posterboy,
