Question On Corn Aversion
0

4 posts in this topic

Hi All - looking for some advice here!

I am one who has an aversion to corn.  Only been gluten-free for a little over a month now and I can't have anything with corn in it.  Here are my questions:

1.  Can someone tell me why some of us cannot tolerate corn??

2.  How far do I take this?  Do I have to stay away from modified corn starch or food starch?  What about HFCS (high fructose corn syrup), corn syrup??

3. What other foods should I be cautious of, being that I've only been gluten free for a month.  Should I stay away from potatoes, mushrooms?? - should I stay away from beans??

 

The whole corn thing threw me off and I don't know how far to take that and also what other foods I should really watch out for.  Thank you!!!!!!!!!!!

Everyone is different. I don't know WHY corn bothers so many of us, but I am one who has trouble with it. After I had been completely corn-free for a year or so, I found out by accident that I could tolerate corn starch. (I couldn't at first.) Then I go glutened and lost corn starch again. It's been a few months now and I MAY be able to tolerate it again but I haven't had the heart to try it yet. But that leads me to believe that it is damage to our villi or perhaps just elevated antibodies in our systems that makes us sensitive to corn. At least SOME of us. There are others who never get any form of corn back.

 

Here is a good website for you. It will tell you all about places corn can hide. And it is a lot trickier than gluten because if corn is used in "processing", it doesn't have to be listed on the label. Read as much as you can on this site and you will learn a lot. http://www.cornallergens.com/list/corn-allergen-list.php

Thank you so much!!!  Are there any other foods you have to stay away from?  I read somewhere that potatoes and mushrooms might cause problems for some people - I'm afraid to try because I got so sick from the corn.  What about beans?

Can you eat anything that has HFCS in it or other corn products?  It truly is in everything!!!

Thank you!!

I can't eat anything with any form of corn. The reason I got corn starch back for a while is that most of the protein is pricessed out of it, but all of those other things are pure poison to me. I lost potatoes for a long time but have recently gotten them back. I think it is a salicylate sensitivity for me. Or it could be a sensitivity to nightshades. They were the only nightshades I had tried so I'm not sure. I recently had an Against The Grain Pizza (YUM!!!) and didn't react to the tomatoes which are both nightshade and high salicylate. I haven't even tried mushrooms or legumes (beans) yet.
