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.

    • There seems to be a new auto word change that changes all instances of  "gluten-free" to gluten-free in case it does it to this post G F without a space gets changed to gluten-free. I was trying to reference a brand name and it kept on changing it to this and messing me up and drove my OCD mad. If your here and do not know what G F means then you probably do not belong here.
    • ....OK ADMIN just delete this one just another slap in the face article. " After demand from the neighborhood, they will soon add gluten-free options, though these crepes will be prepared on the same griddle, so they're intended for those with mild celiac disease or those who just prefer to eat gluten-free. " 

      Sorry Numskull but "mild celiac" FFS there is no such thing, bloody residue smaller then crumbs and you get months of heighten antibodies an damage. This is very misleading and can lead to people newly diagnosed hurting themselves. NOW if you have no problem with gluten free oats, you can make a crepe like batter very easy, it is a bit fluffier like a hybrid between pancakes and crepes but try this one.
      I used to use gluten-free Harvest oat flour to make these but as I have adverse reactions to any kind of oats I gave this up. 50g Oat Flour
      1/4 tsp Salt
      1/2 tsp Cinnamon
      1 tbsp Maple syrup
      1/2 cup water
      2 tbsp applesauce
      Mix all ingredients togehter then let sit for 10mins for the it to thicken up before pouring in the pan. I used to cook them like pancakes but can be used for crepes due to the texture.
    • I’m so sorry you feel you must steal, that must be awful. The only thing I might consider is that it can become a habit, especially the self-justification part. Not that I'm recommending it right now for you , but with a ketogenic diet, the body goes into ketosis, not ketoacidosis, which is something that people with Type I diabetes can go into: in addition to their bodies burning fat, they also have insanely high levels of glucose in their blood. There’s no risk of ketoacidosis on a ketogenic diet, and in fact in the old days before insulin, one of the remedies was a ketogenic diet. It’s still often used for seizures as well. Plumbago
    • Hi Mary Anne, They take the skin biopsy from adjacent to a "lesion".  There are many possible symptoms of celiac disease.  DH is the skin rash symptom of celiac disease. It can take a year for itching to go away from what I've read.  Reducing iodine intake during symptoms may help reduce their duration.  You have to be gluten-free for symptoms to subside as DH is an immune reaction caused by celiac disease. A good place top start looking for knowledgable doctors is in a local support group.
