These products have been reformulated to improve the flavor or release of medication. We would not expect to find gluten in the new ingredient components necessary to reformulate these products.

The following Johnson & Johnson/Merck Consumer Pharmaceuticals products have been tested and do not contain detectable levels of gluten:

Children’s Mylanta(R) Tablets Bubblegum
Regular Strength Mylanta(R) Liquid Original Flavor
Maximum Strength Mylanta(R) Liquid Original Flavor
Mylanta(R) Ultra Tablets Cool Mint

Maximum Strength Mylanta(R) Gas Mint Tablets

Pepcid(R) AC 10 mg Tablets
Pepcid(R) Complete Chewable Mint Tablets

Glutens are naturally-occurring proteins found in grains such as wheat, rye, barley, and oats, but are not found in corn.  The primary source of starch in our formulations is corn.  Relatively small amounts of other materials used in our formulations may contain starch from other sources ( e.g. potato, rice). 

We are not aware of published reports associating the use of our products with a worsening of symptoms in patients with celiac disease. 

We hope this information is helpful.
