Is Extra Gum Safe for Celiacs?

Extra gum is a sugar-free gum launched by Wrigley in 1984.  It became hugely popular soon after it was released, due to the long-lasting flavor and low calories.  It is now available in over 30 different flavors

I have not been much of a gum guy in my life, but when I do buy some, Extra is one of the brands I trust.  The Peppermint and Spearmint flavors are always refreshing to chew on.  Also, the commercials are very memorable as well, with most of them emphasizing the long-lasting nature of the gum.

Since it is only natural that many celiacs and gluten intolerant people want to chew gum, I thought it would be helpful to find out if Extra gum was gluten-free….

The Answer

Yes, Extra gum IS gluten-free and safe for celiacs!  According to the Wrigley website, all of their sugar-free products are also gluten-free, and Extra fits into this category.
