I'm allergic to wheat... Becoming deathly allergic to it. I've learned that some things that are Certified Gluten Free may have wheat still in it but the gluten has been removed... It's been said that Colgate is gluten free but I have been wondering if there's any hidden wheat in it because I start gagging and everything when brushing with that toothpaste.

watch out for Sodium Lauryl Sulphate its a foaming agent as used in soap shampoo, washing up liquid, car wash etc a good 10% of irish people are allergic to this, its where mouth ulcers come from
Many toothpastes have removed this and so too have mouth ulcers that I always had.

Yes ive noticed i react to some of the arm and hammer ones but not the pro-enamel. On closer inspection the ones i react to contain hydrolysed starch which could be a wheat derivative. This seems to be an ingredient in many of the cheaper toothpastes too. Its a weird thing to be cleaning your teeth with (surley broken down starch makes sugars?!) so suspect its just a cheap filler added for texture.

I am allergic to Gluten and I have discovered that Gluten can also damage the teeth and the enamel and cause discolouration, yellowness or brown spots. It can also lead to canker sores and cause inflammatory gum diseases. Many people also develop bad breath with the ingestion of gluten. It can cause dry mouth syndrome and also cause excessive ulcers in the mouth. Gluten may result in certain reactions when it comes in contact with foods such as coffee, milk, chocolate or other grains.Read more here!

What about Aim toothpaste?

what about Euthymol, I have even emailed them but no response!!!

I know this is an old thread, but I had a severe reaction and I had not eaten anything that day-it was after I brushed my teeth with a new toothpaste (Colgate Sensitive) the Dentist had given me that I (idiotically) did not check before using. I have used Colgate Total and been fine-is this far fetched or has anyone else experienced anything like this?

I cannot use Colgate, I break out in horrible mouth ulcers. This was a constant before I was diagnosed,I switched to aquafresh I was fine. This was all BEFORE I knew I was coeliac. I believe there is something in Colgate,as it has always effected me.
