Curious if your toothpaste is gluten free? Looking for a list of gluten-free toothpaste brands? I researched the top brands to find out if they contain gluten. Get the full scoop in this article. Please see my disclosures.
Experts tell us to brush you teeth twice a day, but what if you can’t eat gluten? Could your toothpaste be making you sick?
Gluten is a protein found in wheat, barley, rye and derivatives of those grains. It’s often hidden in surprise products that don’t look like bread, pasta or pizza, and is even found in many lip balms and makeup products.
When you have celiac disease or gluten sensitivity, you must be extra cautious about everything that crosses your lips. And while you are probably already hypervigilant about the food you eat, you might not realize that you need to be careful about what oral hygiene products you use too.
The good news is that I have found, and as you’ll see below, is that most mainstream toothpaste brands do not contain gluten. This should put your mind at ease, no doubt.
