Does Toothpaste Have Gluten?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

My SIL said she heard it does, but on my toothpaste it pretty much says flouride. Does anyone know if toothpaste has gluten?

Does anyone know if ventolin inhalers have gluten. I can't use the no brand one because it gives me the shakes like you wouldn't believe. I can take VENTOLIN though and I don't get the same side effects from it, does anyone else have this issue?

Thanks to anyone who can give me any insite on these two issues.

As for the toothpaste, crest toothpastes are all gluten free. I think colgate is as well, but you might want to double check on that.

According to this website, http://glutenfreedrugs.com/list.htm, the inhaler is okay, too. Check out the site, it's been a great help to me!

Best,

Lisa

I use crest wtih no problems. However, somone said that one of Tom's toothpaste had gluten. I never used Tom's so I do not know this for sure. Nor did I look into it to see if it was correct. Plus that was several years ago and things change. What toothpaste do you use?

I use crest and it doesn't seem to bother me, but I've heard Tom's Of Maine is gluten free so I bought some, but the taste was HORRIBLE - IMO LOL!! I'm glad to hear that crest isn't suppose to have gluten. I use the cool mint gel though so I hope that one is also gluten free!!

There are two toothpastes I know of that contain gluten - Sensodyne and one other sensitive tooth toothpaste (not crest or colgate or tom's).

I use Tom's. This is from their website,

"Only two of our products contain gluten:

Natural Moisturizing Hand Soap liquids (Contains wheat protein)

Natural Moisturizing Body Wash (Contains wheat protein)

All other Tom's of Maine products are free of any ingredient derived from wheat, rye, barley, or oats, nor are our ingredients processed with derivatives of those grains. As such, they should not be considered a potential source of gluten.

The glycerin we use in our products is derived from coconut, palm kernel oil, and palm oils. It is not derived from corn, is not genetically modified, and is not a potential source of gluten."

I recently contacted Tom's to check if their toothpaste was not only gluten-free but casein-free and soy-free as well. They confirmed it is gluten-free and CF, but it may include soy. Here is their response:

>> Dear Leonard,

>>

>> Thank you for your e-mail. All Tom's of Maine Toothpastes are gluten-free and casein-free. All of

>> our Toothpastes do contain vegetable glycerin, which is sourced from vegetable oils. One of the

>> sources of that vegetable oil can be soy.

>> I hope this information is helpful. Please let me know if I can assist with anything else.

    • In Austin, Wildwood Bakehouse and Wilder Wood Restaurant are totally gluten free.  I had the chicken fried steak and gravy and onion rings!!!  Awesome!!!  
    • Hi there I have this exact same thing.. however I don’t have celiac that I know of.. I found this when google searching for what the heck is wrong with my face.  I was wondering if you ever found out.. or if it just went away. Thanks
    • I have read the newbie 101 and have been careful about reading labels. I'm the only one that's gluten free in my household, so they could be contaminating me. I was eating gluten for 6 weeks after my blood test because it took that long to get an official diagnosis and my GP told me to still be eating it for the tests to be accurate. It was probably too soon to retest, but the test was accidentally ordered by the lab. I have been having an increase in joint pain over the last couple months and my rheumatologist ordered lab work. The lab saw the celiac panel had been ordered, but didn't see results so they added it on because they thought it still needed done.  My gut issues are starting to get better, but I'm thinking the joint pain might have been from the celiacs because all of the rheumatoid tests came back normal for the first time in twenty years.
    • Hi and Welcome to the Forum.  I am glad that you are here! As with a lot of things in life, try not to compare yourself to other people. You are trying to be the best version of yourself - not Jill, Annie, or Maya.  People make a lot of foolish decisions in the world and it does not mean that you should do it too.  Also, many people are gluten free for a lot of reasons that aren't celiac. One of my best friends has gluten sensitivity but not celiac.  He eats a lot of food that I won't touch due to possible cross contamination which he doesn't worry about too much.  Be true to yourself and keep your self healthy.  It is so hard, but it's better than getting sick! I hate not being able to partake in yummy food at parties, but I have learned what junk food I can eat.  I will make sure to buy some tortilla chips or Fritos for picnics.  I freeze gluten-free cupcakes to eat when we celebrate birthday parties (I can just take one out of the freezer and go).  I make sure to take a dish to share to potlucks.  I ask permission at restaurants and parties to bring my own food - no one has ever said no, and when there is a time to celebrate, I splurge on something I really like.  Fortunately, there are a lot of gluten-free foods that I really like. Do i miss pizza and really good burger? YES! And sometimes, I still feel awkward, but life is so much more than food.
    • If Small was going to get rid of anything in a takeaway meal, it would be the bread with all its dreaded gluten. However, many scientists and nutritionists argue gluten is not a problem for people who do not have celiac disease or who are not "gluten-sensitive". Massey University senior lecturer in food ...
