I'd also prefer if it was free of corn (I think I remember somebody saying many tomato sauces had corn) but I'll take suggestions either way since I'm gonna challenge corn prior to a general food test panel in a week or 2.. thanks

If you have Muir Glen in the store you shop at, check that out. They would be in the health food section not the regular section. I don't have a can right now or I'd check the ingredients for you. I buy all Muir Glen canned tomatoes.

I recently tried this one and liked it:

http://www.risingmoon.com/products/sauce.php

It definitely appears to be corn-free. I tried the Merlot one. Here are the ingredients:

Water, Organic Tomato, Organic Onion, Organic Carrot, Organic Garlic, Organic Merlot Wine, Organic Mustard, Sea Salt, Organic Parsley, Organic Basil, Organic Italian Herb Blend, Organic Black Pepper.

I found my can of tomato sauce by Muir Glen. This one has no added salt but they sell both.

Organic tomato puree (water,organic tomato paste), organic onion powder, naturally derived citric acid and organic garlic powder.

What I don't remember is if citric acid is corn derived.

Citric acid is corn derived :(

I agree with lorka it's really easy to make your own sauce, then you know exactly what is going into it. I usually just saute some onion and garlic in a little olive oil, tear up some fresh (peeled) tomatoes and throw them into the pan, a little fresh basil and simmer until it gets saucy.

I make my own sauce, I use Contadina Puree. Ingredients: Tomato Puree, (Water, Tomato Paste,Citric Acid. That's all it says on the label! Stay away from the sauce though. The Sauce has High Fructose Corn Syrup in it.

It takes less than five minutes to prepare. Just add basil, oregano, garlic powder, onion powder, tablespoon of sugar, dash red pepper...really whatever you like. It's really simple. Just let it simmer for a while.You can use real garlic and onion if you prefer. (Just don't put ground fennel in it. Then it will taste like pizza topping.)(unless you decide you want to try that too.)

Give it a try and enjoy!

Sorry. I didn't know citric acid was derived from corn. Can it be derived from anything else?

Where did you hear Citric Acid was corn derived?

According to the Wikipedia Site Citric Acid is not derived from corn but mainly from lemons and limes. I guess if a product is in question just call the company.

Citric acid

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Citric acid is a weak organic acid found in citrus fruits. It is a good, natural preservative and is also used to add an acidic (sour) taste to foods and soft drinks. In biochemistry, it is important as an intermediate in the citric acid cycle and therefore occurs in the metabolism of almost all living things. It also serves as an environmentally benign cleaning agent and acts as an antioxidant.

Citric acid exists in a variety of fruits and vegetables, but it is most concentrated in lemons and limes, where it can comprise as much as 8% of the dry weight of the fruit.

Please let me know if you find a site that says otherwise.

Tiffany, I would like your recipe - I want to start making my own and planted a bunch of roma tomato plants this spring with that in mind.

I have been researching corn allergies, citric acid is on the very long list of ingredients to avoid. Almost all commercially made citric acid is now derived from corn because it's cheap.

At the Avoiding Corn Forum there is a relatively new thread talking about this topic: Avoiding Corn

scroll down a little ways on the left side menu and you will see "Citric Acid Uses"

I'd also prefer if it was free of corn (I think I remember somebody saying many tomato sauces had corn) but I'll take suggestions either way since I'm gonna challenge corn prior to a general food test panel in a week or 2.. thanks

If you want a premade sauce, I like Amy's Premium Organic Pasta Sauce "Family Marinara". The ingredients are: Organic Tomato Puree, Organic Onions, Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Sea Salt, Organic Garlic, Spices

....and it says on the jar "gluten-free"

Interesting article. I always learn something from this forum!

I called Contadina about their Puree and they said their citric acid is man-made and corn is not used in the process. So anyone with a corn allergy can freely use it! (Their Puree not their sauce.)

I also agree, Amy's has great sauces and even salsa. I don't know if their salsa has corn in it but it is gluten-free.

you eat amy's sauce with no problems? cause you're avoiding soy, corn, gluten, dairy, etc. as well, right?

also, I've avoided all amy's products for a while due to the cross contamination concerns, but you guys have been fine with Amy's tomato sauce?

Sorry I am so belated in getting back to you on this, I can eat this Amy's Pasta Sauce with no problems. And yes, I am avoiding soy, corn, gluten, and dairy.

As far as cc with Amy's, there have been a couple of different threads about this that I have noticed and some do have problems with her products while many others do not. It really comes down to the individual.

digging through the archives huh? I forgot about this post but thanks.. I might give it a try... if I remember right from the Amy's posts, it seems that certain products from Amy's are more likely have cc issues than other products...

Good luck if you do try it :)

Yeah, I think maybe it was the frozen meals that people were reacting to? But I might be wrong so don't quote me on that!

While they're all recipes, I did add three recipes for tomato sauces (one with meat) to my "As Promised, A Few Recipes" thread.

I have not been diagnosed yet. But just going off wheat(gluten) made me feel much better in only 3 days. I have been sick now for over 3 years. Vomiting until I thought I was going to die. Feeling like I was in a cloud, and scared to even go out in public. My niece in law has this problem so I tried going off of gluten and so far feeling better then I have in years. I was in the hospital for dehydration and pain. They couldnt find anything that would cause this problem. Can't get an appointment until october with a gastro dr. also on the tomato sauce question (Classico) is a good gluten free product. Thank you Barbara123

Ugh I wouldn't dare trust wikipedia for anything important. Citric Acid as an ingredient has nothing to do w/ citrus at least 99% of the time.

I did see one label somewhere that specified "citric acid (naturally derived)" recently, so that might involve citrus fruit.

The typical citric acid manufacturing process includes the fermentation of whichever source material. I don't recall what sources are most common.

I ran into some crazy-wrong nonsense at wiki recently regarding gliadin or gluten. Oh, I think they claimed gliadin was in barley & rye (hordein & secalinin would be right), besides the actual wheat it is in. I suppose the author's heart was in the right place but wrong is wrong when the goal is to be encyclopedic.

Yikes, I'd seen the cc talk re: Amy's but never connected it to my fav sauce.

I think every time I saw the talk it was about the frozen dinners etc.

For pasta sauce I love Amy's Org Roasted Garlic. No sweeteners either. So many organic sauces include evap cane.

For tomato sauce & canned tomatoes I'm another Muir Glen fan.

    • They didn't suggest any probiotic support. Ultimately the side-effects of this drug stabilized approaching the end of the course of treatment, though after it was finished, I was perhaps a bit improved, but no profound symptom resolution for me. Darn! The search goes on.
    • Thankyou I have found that I became intolerant of dairy and having cut it out feeling better but if I come into accidental consumption the symptoms are similar to that of gluten but not as severe .. Patience ay ?
    • I checked the Gluten Free Watchdog (I subscribe) and did not find this  particular product, but found the company's oat bran flakes which did not list any gluten ingrediants, but barley was found in testing well over 20 parts per million.  I would stick with certified gluten-free cereals, personally.  I think it is "hit or miss" on grain products.    
    • It is normal for other intolerances to become apparent once you remove gluten. I don't know why, perhaps as the immune system is free'd from chasing gluten it finds new targets? A lot of coeliacs find they have to cut out dairy as well for example. It's certainly my number one culprit for skin issues.  It also can take time for removing gluten to have its full effect, as antibodies will remain in the body for up to 6 months. So the reaction could still be to gluten in a way. 
    • I did not re-test my antibodies for a full year after diagnosis but I think your daughter should be checked again in 6 months.  If she does have celiac, and I really am sure she does regardless of what this doc seems to think, they should decrease in 6 months.  If she is fast healer, they could potentially be in the normal range but it varies from person to person. She did show damage in her small intestine but at 4 years of age, damage would not have progressed to the point where this doctor could be convinced it is Celiac.  They set the bar way too high. Kind of silly to require you to damage her insides further to prove it to the AMA. I think she should go gluten-free, as you have stated, and re-scope her in 6 months to see how the original damage looks then. If it is gone, then maybe that would convince them. The 4 out 5 criteria is not done in kids because, I am convinced, of liability issues. They just do not want to get sued if by some small chance, they diagnosed someone who did not have Celiac.  I think the odds of that are pretty slim, when you think about it. Even with a misdiagnosis, eating gluten free will never harm anyone. But as children are minors and cannot legally make medical decisions on their own like adults can, that rule is out for them.
