Hi, I'm new here but I want everyone to go to the library and check out the DVD "Food Inc." At the end? I think, it tells you ALL THE THINGS WE EAT EVERY DAY MADE FROM CORN!!! It's amazing! You are probably consuming corn without even knowing it!

I am allergic/sensitive to what I am really not sure. My allergist told me to log everything I ate, so I did that for months, but don't see any trend at all. I do suspect corn, sulfites and citric acid tho, but don't know for absolute certainty. It is sort of maddening.

I am also allergic to multiple foods including corn. Which by the way is in powdered sugar and baking powder. There is many books at Barnes and Noble that have recipes for this and other dietary problems. I have found a book that I love called you won't believe it's gluten free. It has different ways of making the same recipe. For those allergic to corn you can do potato starch and millet flour bread which is really good. It is one of my favorite breads. And I am somewhat picky on how my food tastes. Just to let you know that there are options out there. It's takes a little more time but in the end it's worth it.

ya know I hadn't thought I might be allergic to all corn products. How do I figure out which ones I'm allergic to? how do you eliminate foods & add foods to your diet to figure out which foods you are allergic to?

I found out I'm allergic to corn as well through an allergy test from my doctor, I had a reaction and went to see her. I haven't had much luck because she just tells me to stay away from it and read labels. I'm still confused and learning about this. I'll need all the help I can get.

The remarkable thing is we have a choice every day, regarding the attitude we will embrace for that day.

We cannot change our past,
We cannot change the fact that people will act in a certain way.

We cannot change the inevitable.

The only thing we can do is play on the one strength we have-and that is our attitude. I am convinced that life is 10 percent what happens to me and 90 percent how I react to it. And so it is with you.

I am also allegic to corn, so is one of my sons. It is VERY difficult to cut out. I think it may be even more difficult now than it was when we were originally tested (abotu 10 years ago).

Our allergist had us on a rotation diet. And the rest of the time we just eliminated corn products completely.

You will really have to watch those labels closely!

Unfortunately, when we cut out the corn (and mold - which included cheese & etc), I gained weight. The back to basics way of cooking is in reality NOT a healthy way to cook.

Now days, I still pay attention to labels, but I don't exclude corn completely. For the most part, my meds help keep me on track. I did have a reaction that sent me to the ER in July, though.

I have a slew of food allergies: wheat, corn, apple, sunflower, shellfish...and then sensitivities to even more, but the real doozy in that list is corn.

Corn is in practically EVERYTHING: corn syrup, corn starch, cornmeal....and even ingredients that aren't obviously made of corn: xanthan gum, citric acid, fructose, etc, etc.

I'd love to swap tips with other people trying to avoid corn in their diet.
