I saw this post from Gluten Free Mama on Saturday and tried the corn salsa and spincach & artichoke dips and they were delicious & easy!  Maybe you can try to make something next time that you can eat as well!  Recipes: http://glutenaway.blogspot.com/2014/02/4-great-gluten-free-chip-dips-for-any.html  Good Luck!

Maybe you can find a way to make the dip with " real" cheese you shred yourself - not the canned stuff? That way it wouldn't have corn oil/ syrup, starch.

Why not use Velveeta? It doesn't contain any corn ingredients. BTW, this isn't a "Coping with Celiac Disease" issue, per se. It is a  "Other Food Intolerance and Leaky Gut Issues" topic. Just saying.

Actually Velveeta DOES have corn ingredients.

 

Ingredients: NONFAT MILK AND MILKFAT, WHEY, MILK PROTEIN CONCENTRATE, MILK, SODIUM PHOSPHATE, MALTODEXTRIN, CONTAINS LESS THAN 2% OF SALT, WHEY PROTEIN CONCENTRATE, CALCIUM PHOSPHATE, LACTIC ACID, SORBIC ACID AS A PRESERVATIVE, SODIUM ALGINATE, CITRIC ACID, SODIUM CITRATE, CHEESE CULTURE, ENZYMES, APOCAROTENAL AND ANNATTO (COLOR).
 
Maltodextrin, scorbic acid, and cirtric acid are almost always sourced from corn. If I ate Velveeta I would probably wind up in the hospital.

I don't have the stamina for shredding cheese, or the bank account for buying it shredded. So, I bought the shredder attachment for my KitchenAid. With the amount of cheese (and other shredded things) we go through in our house it has been well worth the investment. I shred a bunch at once and use corn starch to keep it from sticking to itself, but potato or tapioca would probably work too. Or just shredding only as much as you need at a time but I like cleaning up as few times as possible.

I also buy block cheese and shred it myself.  I will do like a pound at a time so I can floof it up in the ziploc bag before freezing so it doesn't stick, but I may try some starch on it next time.  You just grab whatever amount you need and toss it back in the freezer.  It is nice for a two person household, and I have to go light on cheese or my gallbladder will freak out.  I always keep at least some shredded parmesean and romano in the freezer to sprinkle on things. I usually get my husband to shred for me, haha, but I also have a shredding blade for my food processor.

 

W8in I feel your pain.  Especially at the times where you don't want to be a meanie and bar your family from having tasty no-nos around you, but you stare at it salivating the whole time.... it sucks!  Lately I have been seeing a commercial for a seasonal food item and I want to eat my TV screen each time it comes on, which is a lot. LOL.

Does cream cheese have corn in it?  I don't know as corn isn't an issue for me.  I also don't know what gooey cheese is.  But I should think you could melt cream cheese or whatever other soft cheese doesn't have corn in it then add finely shredded extra sharp cheddar (perhaps just a bit) to give it a sharper flavor.

 

We used to get Espinaca Con Queso at Chi Chi's when they had one in our area.  I recreated it at home and I think it was just cream cheese and spinach.  I did use Velveeta in mine too, mixing half cream cheese and half Velveeta because I happened to like the slightly nippier taste but I'm sure you could use cheddar and get the same sort of flavor.  Might give it a slightly thicker texture.

 

Used to be a Mexican place here that made an out of this world dip and it had cheddar in it.  It was ground beef, onions and green bell peppers cut in strips like for fajitas, perhaps tomatoes (been a while so not sure about that) and cheddar cheese all melted together on a metal platter served on a wooden board like you would for fajitas.  We actually didn't even eat it as a dip because I was trying to keep my carb count lower.  We'd just scoop it onto small plates and eat it with a fork.  Man was it good!

I thought I had it bad with all of my problems.  I wouldn't wish a corn allergy or intolerance on anyone.  One year, my daughter's teacher sort of dumped all of the food allergy/issue kids onto me since I think he was fearful that he might kill one or at least sicken them.  I tried to be sooo careful.  But this one boy couldn't have yellow dye number 5 (I think that was the number) or corn so...  Party time was slim pickin's for those kids.  Some were gluten-free, there was a life threatening peanut allergy, issues with other nuts, dairy, eggs, soy and some other things that likely wouldn't crop up at a kid's party.  I always did manage to find things to serve to them, even if it was just fresh fruit.  And I did manage to find a few things at the health food store although they didn't always like them.  The girl with the peanut allergy did say that she apprecitated my efforts though so it wasn't all bad. But I tried to serve them all the same things so that everything was safe for everyone and I did try to make it as close to what the other kids were eating as I could.  Including making my own powdered sugar for icing.

Since W8tin is still negotiating the ins and outs of the G F diet, and she feels this is still a coping issue, I think it's okay for this topic to remain right here.

Hubs is the cheese shredder in this house, too. And the mandoline handler. "Lucy" is barred from using that one. Although one time, he sliced his own finger on that puppy and I had to keep from saying "see! see! It's not just me!" lol

I can completely sympathise with your story .... Some weeks ago we we re visiting some Friends in The countryside and suddenly an hour visit turned into the whole afternoon and a barbecue and sausages came out, hamburgers, buns, salad and dressing, before I could even lift my hand and say .... But iiiiii aaammmm GGGFFF.....! And not even my husband thought of saying anything.... Everyone eating happpily and nothing to eat for me, because everything had gluten! I was not very pleased- I had not broght anything because I was not expecting to stay out all afternoon!

But on the upside... My cousin in New Orleans made me a fab dip with grilled artichokes, 1 squeezed lemon, olive oil, Parmesan cheese... Whisk in the food processor until smooth and tuck in!!

Unless just the sight of, or smell of, or suggestion of corn makes one sick, i.e., mind over matter, Velveeta just might be tolerable for the corn insensitive.

Im sorry did I put it in the wrong spot? So sorry! But I do want to point out hubbs did not use Velveeta Cheese he used something eles. Some off brand. But I am still having issues. So I wasn't going to eat it anyway. But man I sure wanted to. It smelled so good! I am really trying to stay away from processed food. Hoping it will help me with issues ...

Larry Mac, from the very sources you cited:

 

Maltodextrin can be enzymatically derived from any starch. In the US, this starch is usually corn;
 
 
And citric acid:
In this production technique, which is still the major industrial route to citric acid used today, cultures of A. niger are fed on a sucrose or glucose-containing medium to produce citric acid. The source of sugar is corn steep liquor, molasses, hydrolyzed corn starch or other inexpensive sugary solutions
 
Believe me, I am so sensitive to corn I have done TONS of research and I KNOW what a corn intolerant person can and can't have. The last time I had something with cirtic acid (which because of the cheapness of corn is almost ALWAYS from corn here in the US), I spent hours in the bathroom, then ended up with a drop in my body's core temperature and had muscle spasms for hours.
 
I would never tell a celiac person that they could eat something that most likely had wheat in it. Telling corn intolerant people they can eat something like velveeta which DOES contain corn is NOT a good idea.

I waited for you to come back and respond to this issue (rather than butting in) because if anyone knows about corn, corn by-products and corn derivatives, it's you! ;)

Yeah, I was away for a couple of days or I would have piped up sooner. I would hate to see someone with a corn intolerance get sick because of bad/erroneous advice.

I completely agree with you about me making any statements concerning what a corn intolerant person may eat. That's not my area of expertise, as it were. And I apologize. I wouldn't have even read that post if it had been in a forum thread devoted to "other insensitivities/intolerances" etc. Corn intolerance is not Celiac Disease. Many believe they are soy, casien/dairy, corn, cheese intolerant. And I'm probably leaving some others out here. It's very unfortunate, and I'm not unsympathetic of them. I just don't have the time and energy to follow everything. I'd rather just focus on Celiac Disease. You know, wheat, barely, and rye.

 

I'm guessing, and I'll defer to you on this, that as with Celiacs, there's a wide range in degree of corn intolerance. Some Celiacs, I'd say most, can eat foods that don't contain any listed gluten ingredients. And others are so sensitive that they must take exteme measures to avoid any possible exposure, no matter how infinitesimally small and unlikely that may be.  

 

Because of my ignorance of corn intolerance, I took one look at Velveeta's ingredients and didn't see any obvious corn.  And then when I looked up the three were discussing, I still didn't see any actual corn in the finished products. Just because a culture is grown on a medium, doesn't necessarily mean there's any of that medium left in the finished product. For instance, from those same sources, it states that even when Maltodextrin is derived from wheat, no wheat protein is left in the finished product. 

 

But I digress from the business at hand. And that's me getting out of the corn business. 

 

Again, please accept my sincere apologies. I promise to butt out of any corn business from now on.

 

best regards, larry mac

I guess if I were only interested in celiac (wheat, rye and barley), I would have read the first post in this thread and, seeing it was about corn, not read any farther. But that's just me.

 

Anyway, I'm glad for you that you have no further intolerances. :)

    • Are M&Ms Gluten Free?
      Olivia....what country are you located in?  I just bought a bag of regular M&M's from the vending machine at work. They are the milk chocolate ones and it is a 1.69 oz. bag.  The allergy warning states: Contains milk and soy. May contain peanuts.  The "best before" date on it is for April of 2017 so this is a recent bag.  
    • New to this gluten-free life
      Getting a diagnosis like celiac an be overwhelming because it's so complex and there's a lot to learn. If you're unhappy with your doctor, switching to a new one and/or getting a second opinion are options. It's really important to find someone you feel comfortable with who listens to your concerns. That being said, as you're preparing for your next appointment, take time to write down any questions that come up as you go about your day beginning to manage your condition and track any symptoms you're experiencing. Did your doctor discuss lifestyle changes and treatment options with you? Here are some examples of things to ask: What tests do I need? What treatment options are available? Should I take nutritional supplements? Are there any dietary restrictions that I need to follow? How will I learn which foods contain gluten? Should I see a dietitian? Can you recommend nutritionists who work with celiac patients? The Celiac Foundation is another resource. Their website has lots of information and resources. There's also the Celiac Support Association – they have local chapters, or the National Foundation for Celiac Awarenes. And check out magazines like Gluten-Free Living, Delight Gluten-Free and Living Without.  
    • Kidney disease question
      Totally agree Cristiana!
    • Kidney disease question
      Icelandgirl and I often remark, "There's always something [to be worried about]"! Whilst  is obviously important to have all these tests and there is good reason to check them (one reads that very occasionally doctors miss something) it has done my health anxiety absolutely no favours having blood test after blood test!    
    • Celiac Night Vision
      On 4th June I posted on the ehealth vision forum under the title seasonal night vision scotomas, but there were no replies. I have just had my eyes tested by an optometrist. Acuity is 20/25. She did field testing and Topcon tomography and did not find anything alarming for my age. However in dim lighting against a light background I can sometimes see a round slightly greenish area about 20 degrees across with lateral extensions to the blind spots. Shutting the eyes suddenly makes it a light area. The scotomas occur within this area. I can also see those intriguing blue arcs of the retina with both eyes (though they always look violet to me). Trying to identify what causes migraine, scotomas and possible celiac symptoms is notoriously difficult which is why there are no good papers on how to do it. I continue to keep a daily record of foods, symptoms and anything else which seems relevant listing what is being avoided and highlighting possible clues. notme! - we are eating tomatoes and potatoes this year! Good luck to other celiac detectives!

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
