Just about all xylitol is from corn. There is one brand I found online that was birch but it is a lot more expensive.

Does the xylitol have to specify it's source on the label? If it is made from corn sometimes, that would explain why it causes me problems sometimes and not other times. Thanks for the helpful information!
(If I saw corn mentioned on the label I would know that I needed to avoid it.)

I use xylitol in all my baked goods. Tastes and acts like sugar in all recipes and is made from birch bark or corn cobs, no chemicals in the processing. Here is a link to help you read more about it. http://www.angelfire.com/az/sthurston/xyli
tol_natural_sweetener.html

I buy mine online at www.emeraldforestxylitol.com, they have free shipping for orders over $30 and I usually order a couple of bags at a time along with mints and gum. Their ginger pastilles are great for an upset stomach. I made some GF banana bread when I got my GF flour from OrgraN it turned out great. I usually use about half the sugar a recipe calls for just because I do not like things too sweet and this works great.

No sugar substitute?? None, at all? Is it possible??

I use stevia and occasionally a touch of agave nectar and have learned to eat things less sweet .

Although, last night night at our Anniversary dinner I did indulge in a banana's foster cream brulee in a tiny cappuchino cup. Ummm, it was gooooooood!!!

Thanks. I do not exceed 1/2 cup a day and pretty much only eat them at the office, so 5 days a week.

It looks like the Tribune checked some mainstream brands. I have to say I was surprised there such a difference between the Quaker and others. I'd have thought Quaker sold theirs to smaller companies. I used to temp at a marshmallow company and their product was packaged under different names.

Yeah, I've read testing results vary depending on batch, too. I don't think the Quaker figure is a typo, but I'll be aware when I'm looking around the net and share more info as I find it.

Another note re the Trib article: it says our current standard for gf is '200' ppm, but I think that's changing with legislation to '20' ppm.

(CSA believes it should be less than 5 ppm. If I'm eating a box of cookies, having oatmeal, eating bread, crackers ... do I want to be counting my ppm every day? yuck. I like the stricter requirements, but I don't think it's gonna fly. www.csaceliacs.org/DEFININGTHETERMG

emoticon that's an eye opener!!! I am on my 3rd large container of Quaker Old Fashioned Rolled Oats! Just making sure that 920 is not a typo?

I feel okay and all. Maybe it does change from batch to batch? Fields are huge, maybe the batch they tested was next to the wheat but what I have been getting is more center field? LOL

But I think for the next refil I'll shop at Whole Foods!

Don't you think it might change from batch to batch, or maybe some brands are always grown far away from any wheat.

I saved this back in December 21, 2008, from the celiac listserv:

"The Chicago Tribune has a big article today on page 4 of section 1, on how to protect kids from unseen allergens. There is a section on gluten in oats.

It notes the number of parts per million (ppm) found in oats. In the USA, companies can list a product as gluten-free if it has less than 200 parts per million.

I have read that in Canada, though, a product has to have less that 20 parts per million to call it gluten-free, i.e., 1/10th the amount allowed in a "gluten-free" product in the USA. Canada has a much safer standard, then.

Here is what the article lists for ppm of gluten found in different brands of oats, including McCann's Irish oatmeal:

1. Quaker Old Fashioned Rolled Oats 920 ppm
2. Jewel (Albertson's) Old Fashioned Oats 190ppm
3. McCann's Imported Steel Cut Irish Oatmeal 160ppm
4. HappyBellies Baby Oatmeal Cereal 130ppm
5. Whole Foods 365 Organic Rolled Oats 79ppm
6. Country Choice Irish Style Oats 36ppm

All six brands were tested for gluten by the Tribune.

The article mentions that wheat and oats are often grown side by side, and that oats often get tainted with wheat if there is even a slight wind, or
harvesting, storing, or transporting the oats and wheat together.

So, by USA standards, McCann's is gluten-free, but by Canadian standards, it is certainly NOT gluten-free. Some of us are more sensitive to gluten than others, too."
