Cornmeal Question
0

7 posts in this topic

Hello - I have a question about cornmeal. I seem to be doing OK with rice and potatos, but cornbread seems to bother, which is bad cause I really like it.

Would cornmeal bother due to fiber, or could there be something else about corn that bothers people? I'm careful to only use cornmeal with no flour added, 2 brands. One of the reasons I ask is that a jar of Maggi brand seasoning on our shelf lists Hydrolyzed Corn Gluten, would they just be saying gluten instead of protein?

I'm also doing a major reorganization of kitchen and shelves - look what I found hiding on my Mom's spice shelf, amongst other things!

Pumpkin Pie spice dated 10/81

Ginger from 91

Some Allspice - date unknown, but price is on a sticker with old style purple ink

The best - a truly ancient (and I mean it) small jar of McCormik sugar sprinkles

for cakes, and the sugar (green) is not stuck together.

lol. your pumpkin pie spice is almost as old as I am. (unfortunately, not too long ago, I think I threw out some stuff (unused) that was about the same age... ;-) )

just for reference, technically speaking, "gluten" is the term for all proteins in grains. it's often used by the general population and celiacs and doctors to refer only to the protein sequences similar to those in wheat, barley, and rye (oatmeal being a big gaping uncertainty :-) ). that's why they used the term on the label - it is the scientifically correct term, but not how it's used in common daily "speak", as it were.

VAGuy,

Some people are also intolerant of corn, whether permanently or temporarily depends on the person, but you may want to eliminate it for a while and then try it again later. Unfortunately, like wheat and barley, corn can be found in a lot of different foods. I hope you figure out what is bothering you. I am thinking about removing potatos from my diet, which leaves me with only rice and corn. It I have to remove corn too then I am going to get sick of rice real fast! :o

Good luck and God bless,

Mariann

Thanks for responses - it seems fiber is a real problem - had same lunch yesterday and today (tuna/mayo on potato chips, H2O) yesterday OK, except today I had 3 gluten-free cookies (MI-DEL) w/approx 3g/12% RDA fiber) and had problems a couple hours later, same @ dinner time/ probs later. Guess I'm just gonna have to be real careful for a while.

VaGuy, I don't know where you live but I live in NC and I can only use one cornmeal and it is Tenderbake white. Now it has to be the white and not yellow and it is selfrising and I have not ever had a problem . You may want to try it if the stores in your area carries it. Good luck. :rolleyes:

We have found the only cornmeal that does not affect our family is the meal we grind ourselves. Since Dent corn is difficult to find in bulk, here where we live, we buy popcorn in the 50lbs bags at Sam's Club. It takes three times through the grinder, but it makes a flavorful meal.

    • Testing After Celiac Disease if IgA deficient
      Is Tissue Transglutaminase IgG one of the tests that can be done (I am guessing that is what TTG IGG stands for). Please correct me if I am wrong.
      Thank you.

      I'm afraid to say I don't really think it is normal Richie, but I do recognise the shakiness and nausea you speak of, as I've been there. (Pre-diagnosis), my shakiness was so bad, my muscles were very weak and couldn't walk without the aid of a walking stick, my ferritin levels were so very, very low and had to take iron tablet every day for months. My hair was falling out, I had really bad digestional issues, amongst other things. I think you should lay off the coffee and the barley drink and all gluten/wheat, because until you do, your body is not going to repair itself properly. Damage is done to the gut even if you don't have gastrointestinal issues, as not all coeliacs have symptoms, but the damage is still being done to the gut, which in turn can cause osteoporosis, other auto-immune diseases and also cancer.  If you ever get a test for coeliac disease, you need to be eating gluten/wheat for at least 6 weeks on a daily basis in order for it to set of the immune response in your body, which will cause a positive result. (Blood tests are less reliable than endoscopy with biopsies - bare this in mind).  You may decide of course not to have a test for coeliacs because of how ill it could make you feel by eating gluten etc. In which case, you need to avoid all gluten and wheat forever! (By the way another symptom of coeliac disease is dairy/lactose intolerance- which could be causing your nausea). Sorry to be blunt, but you need to know the dangers and there's no point in sugar coating it. What is your fasting blood test for?

      Hello! I am new to this Celiac website... Is there anyone out there with Celiac AND extensive food allergies? My allergies include shellfish, dairy, eggs, cantaloupe, kiwi, mango, nuts, oranges, red dye, and more I can't think of. I went to the allergist about a year ago to see why I wasn't feeling well, and once everything was eliminated, I still didn't feel well. We did more testing to find out I had celiac as well as allergies to cattle as well as rye grass (I live on a farm basically). This was back in January 2016. I recently had my endoscopy with the gastroenterologist a week ago. I have no idea what to do or what to eat... So fish and potatoes for me!

      Week 4 of the gluten challenge- wheat cereal every morning, regular bread every day, and wheat tortillas for my lunch wraps. Right now, body aches that seem exercise related (weight lifting and running), even though I am doing the same intensity of weight lifting and running I've always done.  Just a few more weeks until my blood test. Counting down the days.
