What is gluten?
Gluten is a substance present in cereal grains, especially wheat, that is responsible for the elastic texture of dough. A mixture of the two proteins, can causes illness in people with gluten allergies. A gluten allergy is the body’s inability to digest the gluten protein; and a gluten intolerance can range from mild sensitivity to celiac disease.
Why is gluten in toothpaste?
Gluten helps foods maintain their shape, acting as a bonding agent that holds ingredients together. Gluten can be found in many types of foods and products, even ones you wouldn't expect – like toothpaste.
Dr. Brite gluten-free toothpaste
It’s now easier than ever to maintain a gluten-free oral health routine with Dr. Brite toothpaste and mouthwash filled with natural and organic ingredients. Instead of using gluten as a binder or thickening agent in our dental care products, we use organic arrowroot powder so those suffering from gluten allergies can brush their teeth effectively without compromising their health.
Is gluten-free toothpaste worth it?
Even a minimal amount of toothpaste with gluten can trigger an immune response when it's absorbed through the soft tissues of the mouth or accidentally swallowed. This is especially critical for children with gluten allergies who may have difficulty spitting out toothpaste. If you do suffer from gluten intolerance, gluten-free toothpaste and mouthwash can certainly have a positive effect on your overall health.
