I made rice crispy squares (gluten-free rice cereal) for my 3 1/2 year old Emmah and I used marshmellow that said modified corn starch...IS THAT BAD? Did I give her gluten by accident. OMG.

I wouldn't have ever relised it until I was reading a tread and the one lady said to watch out for mashmellows.

Modified corn starch is fine. It's modified wheat starch that's bad.

modified corn starch is made from corn. the one you have to worry about is modified food starch (unlabled 'food starch') but that, these days, should have a "contains wheat" statement in some fashion or another on the label due to the labeling laws.
