Hall's Cough Drops

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Apologies if this is known information, but I jut got off the phone with Hall's Cough Drops and was told that their entire line is gluten-free! In my starter kit it said only Sugar-Free varieties, which I asked the woman about, and she said that used to be the case, but in the last few months they have made ALL Halls items gluten-free. So lozenge away!

Thanks for the info!!

Thank you SO MUCH! I have needed a cough drop lately and those have always been my favorites, particularly because they use sugar instead of the ubiquitous corn syrup. Thank you again!

good question. i hadn't thought about old product lying around, although it wasn't clear whether they had actually changed the content of their drops or just gotten around to completely verifying their gluten-free-ness. Anyway, they have expiration dates, so look for the ones that are furthest away, they'd be the newest.

Oh, by starter kit I meant the delphi list -- a good to place to start for safe items. If you don't have it I believe you can download here: http://magickhand.googlepages.com/newbiesurvivalkitfiles

I called themlike a few months ago and they told me they could not guarantee it and in some flavors they even said clearly that they were not gluten free. Maybe they changed. I stick with Ludens because they actually could answer it without a doubt that they are gluten free.

Just got off the phone with them again because I've been sick lately and thought perhaps Halls were the cause. She said again categorically all flavors all varieties of halls were gluten-free. She said infact they always had been, but they just got new information from their "regulatory commission" verifying the whole line. She also said they would soon be using allergen information on the packaging.

This is my first time posting so I hope I am doing it correctly. Anyhoo ... I noticed that you said that Ludens Cough Drops are gluten free. Do you remember how you contacted the company for this information? I have been the family's resource for gluten-free info and can generally find out anything, but haven't been able to find a contact number, website or e-mail for Luden's. When did you learn this info? Thanks.

Ludens went to Hershey's, then to Pharmacia, then to Pfizer, then to Johnson & Johnson. No wonder you couldn't find anything. Anyways, at the bottom of the page is a number, maybe they can help you. Either that or there may be a number on the bags...

Hi there,

Thought I would update the Hall's Cough Drop discussion.

On October 8, 2008 I received this response to my inquiry from Halls:

>>>All of the Halls products are gluten-free. If any of our products contain gluten, the source of it will be on the ingredients as wheat, rye, barley, etc. If the allergen is not in the product but manufactured in facility that handles the allergen, then the product will state a warning that it may contain trace of the allergen. If there is neither declaration, then the product is free of the allergen.

Thank you for taking the time to contact us. We hope that you will continue to purchase and enjoy our products.

Sincerely,

Consumer Relations

    • Hi Matt,  Thanks for taking the time to reply!  I completely agree haha.  Thanks for the links - I'll give them a read over!  I think it was a mixture of the first time travelling with being gluten-free and the added bonus of the language barrier, it made me dread meal times when usually food is the first thing I think about when travelling to new places! Again, I think the planning element was also a factor, not being able to walk past a nice bakery without walking in - why do most Berlin train stations have bakeries in everyone?!?! THE SMELL!!!  Haha, good excuse! Could have used that in the hotel restaurant (arrived late the first night) and the only avail dish was a dry chicken Caesar salad (literally 3 thin slices of chicken, 5 cherry tomatoes and a plate of lettuce).  I am I'll give the website a look over too - thank you! My app's with my consultant are every 6 months, basically was just sent away with no info/advice given and feeling the struggle now that reality has set in that this is for good!  Hope you are well! 
    • Gluten is a protein smaller then blood,bleach does not kill it as it is not a germ. I would replace scratched pans. baking dishes, tubaware, wooden utensils, colanders, etc. Throw out crumby condiment jars and any non gluten-free spices and condiments. Cast Iron can be saved and some metal utensils by putting in your oven self clean cycle, 500F will destroy the protein. I always tell people easy ways to get started on new cookware, nordicware microwave cook ware, omelette makers, steamers, rice cookers, grilling plates (do not forgot the splatter cover), This way you can have a cheap and easy meals, a new crockpot and use crockpot liners is great for soups, I suggested a combo rice cooker/crockpot/steamer as a great investment. OH if you want a nice clean safe prep area/counter/eating place mat, look up freezer paper/butcher paper. I did a post on where to get it in bulk awhile back. But laying it out is perfects, and makes clean up a breeze. Foil sheets in baking dishes works great for a extra precaution but if you have any with baked on stuff or scratched look at getting new ones. PS took me over  months to start feeling much better. Sometimes the improvement is minor and you have to think back to the worst you had. It does improve but normally big changes are after a year.

    • It sounds like your hives resolved.  I had a six month bout with them.  Antihistamines really helped.  My doctors are not sure if Mast Cell or autoimmune is the root cause.  
    • My kid has Raynauds.  It freaks her classmates out.  She wears shoes and wool socks all year round and we live in a warm state.  It is autoimmune.  She manages it by layering, turning up the heat, use lots of blanket throws.   I have Hashimoto’s and celiac disease.  So, having multiple autoimmune issues is common.  
    • Well, you do need to replace some things because they are too porous or damaged to remove gluten.  Things like old wooden spoons, scratched non-stick pans, toaster, colander, sponges, etc.  Honestly, the list is long, so try getting a few celiac books at the library or Amazon.  Consider reading through the Newbie 101 thread under the “Coping section”.    You should see some minor improvement soon.  It does take time to heal.  Most  around here will say it takes a year!
