I got glutened by contaminated store brand cornmeal last night... <_<

It was a bad glutening too, so that was no fun. I just bought some Quaker cornmeal (in a little canister looking thing). I want to make cornbread again, cause I'm really jonesing for it.


Does anyone know if it's gluten-free? If it isn't, does anyone know of a brand that is?

The only other ones I've seen are Bob's Red Mill (got sick from their "gluten-free" baking mix so I don't trust them) and Aunt Jemima (which is Quaker anyway).

Please help :huh:

I've heard that Quaker products are no longer safe. I also got sick from Bob's Red Mill (why do they label that stuff as gluten-free anyway?). There are some cornbread recipes in some of the gluten-free cookbooks. Do you have any of those?

ok... I don't eat cornmeal myself, but I would stay away from Quaker and Bob's Red Mill. Maybe you could order some from kinnikinnick, I consider their food safe.

I also was gluttened by cornmeal--the Indian Head brand, yellow bag. I wonder if maybe this is why some people are so corn sensitive. Maybe a good number of cornmeal and cornstarch brands are contaminated.

I got one that says gluten-free right on the box! It is Hodgson Mill. I had no problems with it and it tasted fine.

Here is a pic of it but I got mine in the regular store in the natural foods section.

I don't know if they have Purity or Unico, but those are the two brands I've seen around here, but I'm from the Great White North.

The Purity is in a clear plastic bag with a yellow and green label. It doesn't say gluten-free, but it says 100% natural No additives. 500g pkg (about 16 oz/1 lb).

Packed by Fort Garry Milling Co.
PO Box 537
Saskatoon, SK, Canada
1-800--363-2578

Disclaimer: My son has no outward symptoms, so I cannot guarantee the purity of Purity.

I use Arrowhead Mills, I think I've read that people have had problems with their products before and I'm not sure why, the company is owned by Hain, and they label really well. I use it often with no problems. This is a link to the Arrowhead Mills web site specifically the Corn meal product and it clearly says Gluten free.

We always stick to either Hodgson's mill (spelling if off, i think) and Kinninick (spelling is off). Yes, quaker can't be trusted - what an ironic statement - who'd a thunk it that you can't trust a Quaker? :D

Husband has Celiac Disease and
Husband misdiagnosed for 27 yrs -
The misdiagnosis was: IBS or colitis
Mis-diagnosed from 1977 to 2003 by various gastros including one of the largest,
most prestigious medical groups in northern NJ which constantly advertises themselves as
being the "best." This GI told him it was "all in his head."
Serious Depressive state ensued
Finally Diagnosed with celiac disease in 2003
Other food sensitivities: almost all fruits, vegetables, spices, eggs, nuts, yeast, fried foods, roughage, soy.
Needs to gain back at least 25 lbs. of the 40 lbs pounds he lost - lost a great amout of body fat and muscle
Developed neuropathy in 2005
Now has lymphadema 2006
It is my opinion that his subsequent disorders could have been avoided had he been diagnosed sooner by any of the dozen or so doctors he saw between 1977 to 2003

I will never, ever eat anything by Quaker Oats ever again. When I called them, they were specific about not being able to guarantee any of their products are safe from cross-contamination. And that was the BIGGIE for me. I noticed that I wasn't feeling better after being diagnosed and going gluten-free. Apparently, I was glutened by their rice cakes sis and was mortified to find out this. But that is basically what all mainstream manufacturers tell you to cover their beehinds.

I have had trouble with Bob's Red Mill stuff as I have seen a lot of people have which I thought was safe too! And Amy's products (which is slightly off the topic).

In regards to the Aunt Jemima...

I have eaten Aunt Jemima Cornmeal and I make corn bread with it all the time. I have yet to have any ill effects. Hoping that since my Celiac is so silent at times, that I am not being glutened without realizing it.

Bob's Red Mill, I had no idea. Does this go for his gluten free all purpose flour too?? YIKES!!!!!!!!!

I've had the Gluten Free Pantry cornbread mix without any problems (though it is not as tasty as my prior diagnosis standby - Jiffy.....mmmmmm).
