Thank you for contacting us about animal ingredients and our products.
To answer to your question, the vast majority of Wrigley products sold in the
U.S. as of August 27, 2008 are free from ingredients of animal origin, including
egg and dairy products. At present, the only chewing gum exceptions are Extra®
Polar Ice, Orbit Crystal Mint and Juicy Fruit® pellet gums.
Extra® Polar Ice gum and Orbit® Crystal Mint contain tiny flavor beads
encased in a microscopic layer of gelatin, which is animal based. We have

we use gelatin it is thoroughly purified and dried during its manufacturing
process. Our staff is continually looking at alternatives to animal gelatin,
but at the moment we've not been able to find a substitute that produces the

Our LifeSaver gummies do contain small quantities of gelatin, which is also
derived from pork. It follows the same drying and purifying process as with the

CremeSaver line does contain cream, which is a dairy byproduct. On the same
note, our LifeSaver Fusions and LifeSaver gummies may produced on the same line
as our CremeSavers, so there is a chance that they may contain trace amounts of
dairy as well. However, we will place a warning on the package if this is the
We hope this information has been helpful. If you have any additional
questions or comments please feel free to contact us at 1-800-WRIGLEY Monday
through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. CST.

Thank you for that.
In the UK all wrigleys except the altoid ones are allowed-they have in gelatine.
Just to make sure, each packet does say suitable for vegetarians.
In the US do they have anything like that on packets?

Not juicy fruit the chewing gum , they are gums like harder sweets . The majority of those kinds of gums are not halal for muslims , like wine gums.Deeds are your money on the day of judgement , make sure you collect plenty now.
Say (O Muhammad SAW):"I am not a new thing among the Messengers (of Allâh) (i.e. I am not the first Messenger) nor do I know what will be done with me or with you. I only follow that which is revealed to me, and I am but a plain warner." (Al-Ahqaf 46:9)
