  • Can TUMS® antacids be taken by people who cannot tolerate dairy products?

    Yes, with a few exceptions. The flavoring in TUMS® Smoothies™ Assorted Fruit tablets contains dairy. If your milk allergies are very serious or life-threatening, you should consult your doctor before using any TUMS® products. Although we have cleaning procedures in place, we cannot guarantee that some small trace of the Smoothies Assorted Fruit flavors would not be present in the other flavors.

    TUMS® bottles are made from polypropylene and they have a #5 recycle on the bottom. Check to see if they can be recycled in your municipality.
