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. :)

    • Hi All this is my blood test result 1.immunogloblulin serum 203 ( 87-350) 2.Deamidated Gliadin IGA  4 ( 0-19 negative) 3.Deamidated Gliadin IGG 3(0-19 negative) 4.Transglutainase IGA <2 ( 0-3 negative) 5.Transglutainase IGG <2 ( 0-3 negative) does it mean most likely no celiac ? thanks.  
    • At the moment it's microwave rice packets as it needs to be something easy for lunch at work. What do you choose for breakfast? At the moment I have gluten-free porridge oats with fruits but also seeing oats are a bit of a gamble in the early days. Trying to figure out how long a reaction takes to show up i.e. if I feel ropey later in the day is it really lunch as I'm blaming at present or actually is it something from the morning or even night before? The food is the toughest bit for me right now; wasn't that great with it before so will need plenty ideas from you good people... seems I'm in the right place though   
    • I know what you're going through - it's that grieving process and it's tough.  I was diagnosed in 2013, and aside from an occasional pity party, I don't look back. I have my restaurants where I feel safe, I have the food I know I can eat, and I get on with my life.  I'm lucky that I live in a big city with lots of options, but you can make this work, and you will feel better and once you do, you'll stop grieving.  The people on this site helped enormously. It is tough in the beginning to know if you've been 'glutened' vs. just going through withdrawal.  For that reason alone, it's best to avoid restaurants for a little while and be careful at home - just to be sure what's happening.  Eventually you'll be able to get back to your version of 'normal'.  Oh, I also have hypothyroid/hashimoto's.  No big deal, I take synthroid. Quinoa, eggs, nuts and beans for protein.  You don't have to go crazy on the cooking.  Just eat a lot of whole foods.  There are a lot of complicated recipes out there, but now may not be the time.  Rice noodles in veggie bouillon - easy and cheap.  gluten-free pasta with olive oil, parmesan and garlic - easy.  I eat a lot of rice and have never had a problem - you're not getting it out of one of those bulk bins, are you?  That could be contaminated.  Go with packaged.  Do you have access to the Macro Vegetarian brand of prepared rice dishes (in the refrigerated section).  They have several that are gluten free, they're delicious heated and with a little gluten-free soy sauce.  They're my go to on days I don't want to cook. Good luck!  
    • I also think that the HPV/Gardasil vaccine triggered something in my body. I had some Celiac symptoms many years before this vaccine but I felt ok. I was physically very active. However, after I received the third dose as well, I began having more problems including a more persistant pain, overall body weakness, lack of concentration, hair loss, etc.
    • OK so been to the doctor, they've sped up my referral and I should get the appointment booking form in the post shortly. They've said stay off the gluten until I have a date for the appointment then in the weeks leading up to it go back on - thoughts? Did my bit of sport last night which was a great relief to be free of any illness-related thoughts for an hour or two; didn't think I'd have the energy at the start but soon got going and was OK so that's a plus I seem to be getting some strange symptoms at the moment that have only happened since trying to remove gluten, do these sound familiar to anyone? dry forehead, just starting to go red \ itchy in places. Treating with E45-type cream tender scalp and sides of head, almost like a pulling feeling and a bit sensitive to touch. Scared this one matches the symptoms of GCA, a particularly nasty autoimmune disease that can lead to blindness 
      Edit: having said that just found this thread and funny enough did wash my hair this morning...
      http://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/topic/50920-sores-on-scalp/ one eye watering and associated fuzzy vision at times, trying to reassure myself it isn't blurred vision due to the point above sometimes bit of a lump in throat sensation, seems to come and go Been reading that some people can't handle rice - I was OK with it whilst eating gluten but have been having it for lunch each day and seem to get worse around 4-5pm so could that be a culprit? How long after coming off gluten would I be able to say I'm at a baseline to know if feeling ill is down to "glutening" vs. blaming it on the body adjusting to the change in (lack of) gluten in food?
