I called and she read the ingredients and told me it was, but I swear I got glutened!

As I said in my reply to your question about smells: Look for other intolerances. Colgate has mint flavour in it, which is extremely high in salicylates, and makes me ill. I brush my teeth with baking soda, because all tootpastes make me ill.

Check out the link in my signature on salicylates. It might be your answer.

Yes, Colgate Toothpaste is gluten-free.

As Ursula said, you may be reacting to another ingredient, or you were glutened by something else altogether. It's so hard sometimes to pinpoint the cause of a glutening.

I keep hearing about how gluten is in some health and beauty products, I have yet to find anything in my home with gluten. So what products do have it, or is the gluten hidden under some other name I'm not catching? :unsure: Thanks Julie

Some people are sensitive to floride, which is in most drinking water and some toothpaste.

Jules, oat flour (avena sativa) is VERY common in makeup. Wheat protein is common in shampoos. I find wheat or oat in many lotions. Oat is in almost all Bath & Body Works brand lotions. Maybe you're just already using all the right stuff??? Don't forget to check your makeup, chap stick, etc...

Tailz, the link is in my signature. My signature is under all my posts, where it says: intolerant to salicylates, that's the link to follow, just click on that.

I have put some baking soda into an empty (washed) skin-creme container, and just dip my damp toothbrush into that. A little goes a long way, a lot would feel awfully salty (yuck).

Rinne, fluoride is poisonous to EVERYBODY, but I don't think anybody gets an immediate reaction to it (at least I have never heard of that).

Tailz, if Tom's of Maine has a strawberry toothpaste, forget it. ALL berries are out on a low salicylate diet. Really, there is NOTHING in a tube that doesn't have something you don't want in it. Trust me on that, I've tried finding a toothpaste I can use, and you might as well save the time and forget it.

    • Makes me wonder when the FDA is going to call gluten an allergen...
    • http://www.newburnbakehouse.com/gluten-free-artisan-bread I had no idea they now have artisan breads and now I am upset because these look amazing.  Is it possible that people emigrate to other countries because of the bread?    The wraps they have are really, really good. They roll without splitting and cracking.  OMG...they even have crumpets.  I really may have to move there.......... http://www.justglutenfree.co.uk/#Section2 We bought this at Whole Foods in London and the bread is quite good.  It makes delicious toast!  The rolls are very good also.
    • I agree JMG, in fact I've never bothered with the prescription because I hoped by not having it I'd be saving the NHS some money.  I imagine this will put a burden on some people though. I can't say I've found a gluten free bread I really like yet in the UK, though, although there was a loaf at a wedding the other day that was as near to the real thing as I have tasted in years - but it wasn't clear where it came from (which is a bit of a worry, perhaps it was real bread after all!).   Do you have a favourite? I think Genius is probably my favourite, best toasted, but M&S produce a seeded loaf that actually  is so convincing that when my sister made a batch of cheese and pickle sarnies with it no-one noticed! I think the seeds were a distraction. I had some amazing artisan gluten-free focaccia once but no idea where that came from either - probably the real thing too! No wonder I've got 'gastritis'! I have considered buying a bread making machine but not because I'd make bread with it - what I really miss is those iced currant buns with cherries on the top.  
    • You have the best sense of humor! 
    • Hello folks.   I don't really know what to say, really. My anxiety is really up and down and I just feel a little ... Lost at the minute.   Well, here goes. I should be almost 2 months gluten free but I'm not, as a rice drink I was drinking was glutening me. Yeah, that annoyed me and messed me up a but. Well, lesson learned.  I'm coming up to just over two weeks gluten free but since being "gluten light," and now completely free, the weight just keeps coming off and its a bit concerning (although it does seem like its tapering off.) I only eat whole foods now that I prepare myself as I have a lot of other intolerances  - the usual suspects soy/egg/diary/corn - I also cannot handle fat well. I have seen some improvement, my BM are no longer pale and floating although I still have constipation. My headaches seem to have also cleared, which is a plus. Still fighting the fatigue though. Up and down days it seems, and my pharmacy doesn't have any folic acid which I am low in without lactose! They offered me a liquid solution chocked full of parabens, not too keen on it if I'm honest. The things I'm worrying about is the weight loss, and lingering nausea which comes and goes, and often swings between nausea and being ravenously hungry. I know this is a journey, has anyone else had a similar experience to mine? Also my personal products are all safe. Oh I'm a dude by the way. 26 from the U.K   Sorry for the ramble. Happy healing to everybody   R
