Manufacturer Correspondence: GSK Sensodyne and Pronamel – Gluten Content


I use Sensodyne Repair & Protect Sensitive Toothpaste.  I had read on several websites that Sensodyne does not contain gluten.  I decided to write GSK myself to see what they had to say.  Note that this is their response to me personally.  Ingredients and procedures can change over time, check with manufacturers to get up to date information.

Thank you for your enquiry regarding presence of gluten and related products in Sensodyne and Pronamel range of oral products. Sensodyne and Pronamel range of oral products do not contain gluten as an ingredient either in the raw materials or in the list of ingredients used in Sensodyne formulations.

GlaxoSmithKline Consumer Healthcare (GSK CH) only uses the highest quality raw material specifications for use in its products. GSK CH does not screen/test final product for gluten, instead GSK CH relies on detailed responses from suppliers of the raw materials which are used in the supply chain for these products. These raw material suppliers have respectively confirmed the absence of gluten in their specifications. As GSK CH does not test for gluten we are unable to provide a specific detection method or threshold for gluten and its derivatives.

We always recommend using any GSK product as described in the product label. Toothpastes do not contain prescribing information.

For consumers, who are intolerant or highly allergic to certain ingredients, it is recommended if there are further concerns to consult your doctor before using this product.
