Ricola Cough Drops

3 posts in this topic

In the past I have heard that Ricola cough drops are gluten free. However, I noticed on their website that it claims their products have "less that 0.01% gluten" and it recommends that one checks with their doctor regarding whether or not they should eat this product.

I don't think it is, but I just want to double-check....Is less than 0.01% acceptable?

I've had these in the past and have never had a problem with them.

Here is the e-mail response that I received. I eat them all the time and have not had a problem and I am super sensitive. I tend to stick with the same two flavours taht I always have.

Thank you for your inquiry about our Ricola products.

Please be advised that all Ricola products are considered as gluten free according to the international Codex Alimentarius Standard.

Please do not hesitate to contact me should you require any additional information.

Kind regards,

I received a similar reply from Ricola USA:

Thank you for your interest in Ricola products.

Because of the increase in requests regarding the gluten free question, we asked our Quality Assurance Dept. in Switzerland to supply us with a more detailed response. Please be advised as follows:

All Ricola products are manufactured in Switzerland and all products are within the limits for gluten established by the Swiss Celiac Association.

The limits are maximum 10 mg gluten per 1 kg of finished product. Product that is within this limit can be considered, according to the Swiss Celiac Association, as suitable for celiac patients.

In the United States, there are no established government standards as to what can be considered gluten-free or what is safe for use in celiac patients. Our products contain less than 0.01% gluten.

We urge you to share this information with your doctor to determine whether it is safe to use our products, or to contact the Celiac Sprue Association of the United States @ 1-877-CSA-4CSA.

We trust this responds to your concerns and thank you for your interest in our products.

    • Thank you for your response! Again I am pretty sure my doctor did all these checks however I will definitely check to make sure and take the necessary actions if not. It just feels like a never ending run of doctor appointments and blood tests at the moment and the whole thing really did come as a surprise to me. I think I have really tried to eat healthy as I believe its so important especially being diagnosed with this disease. I feel as though its not just about eliminating gluten but also having a really healthy and balanced lifestyle. Also, I find that at the moment it is not just gluten that upsets my stomach, fruit for some reason also does. Unfortunately, people do not realize this and dismiss it which can also be annoying on top of the diagnosis. I will definitely be avoiding processed foods and have been for the last few months. Thank you for your response and I will listen to my body as you have said, it is without doubt very important.
    • Is aroy d milk gluten free?I couldnt find an information on its package,it says it doesn't have any additives.It's full fat and sold in a bpa free carton box.Anyone tried it?
    • Thank you so much for your reply, it has really helped! Your feedback on the grieving side has really comforted me to know I am not the only one and that it will get better. I am not always upset and sometimes I feel optimistic but occasionally it really just does get overwhelming especially at the moment if I am eating in a restaurant for the first few times or out with friends and have to be concerned with what I can eat and not just concerned with having fun.  In relation to my diet I have seen a dietitian and got very positive feedback. I love cooking so this has been helpful with changing diet. But, I just find that I run out of recipes and am sometimes eating the same thing on repeat which is agitating. Unfortunately, I currently cannot eat lots of fruit as my stomach responds poorly to it so my dietitian has said to eat only one or two servings a day and build up. I definitely am going to research more recipes and snacks over the next month and really try to get my diet sorted so I can feel more relaxed and better. Thank you again your response it has helped massively just to know there are people out there who understand! Thank you.
    • I am sorry that you are sick!  Ennis has offered some great advice.  With small children, they can be glutening you.  I recall member Jebby getting glutened by her kids.  She worked full time as a neonatologist (premie doctor) and her kids would give her slobbery, adorable kisses, etc.  Jebby had the household go gluten free.  That might be something to consider.  
    • Hmm... my massage therapists use aromatherapy and specifically ask you to inhale several times while they hold it very close to your face and I do have them rub my face (although some people don't like that and don't have it done.) Lotion also ends up on your hands which you could transfer to food you eat afterwards if you haven't washed your hands well (obviously hand washing is key!) But I don't think that is too far of a stretch to think it *could* be injested and to double check to be sure the products used are gluten-free.  And at a salon I realize that they'd wash my hair tilted back but what about product(s) being spritzed on your hair when styled? Rare yes, but I do know I've "tasted" those products before! Ick.
