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.

    • gluten intolerance, dairy intolerance and fructose
      I'v posted on here b4... 6 yrs ago I was diagnosed as severely gluten intolerant. ( they were kinda shocked that test for celiac was negative) anyway my symptoms went away up until a few months ago. I went to the gi doctor and they said I can't have dairy or fructose.. * I found that out yesterday, I thought my tests for dairy was neg but guess it was pos. And I had no clue about the fructose*..    Anyway is it possible to have all these I tolerances? It's not making since to me.... also if you experience same thing what can I eat!! All I had today was grilled chicken and rice because it was on my lost from gi doctor... I'm a college student so I need easy quick stuff as easy as I can have it now I guess.. also is almond milk ok to have and coconut milk? I'm very confused on the fructose part.. dairy I'v been of for 6 weeks.... my doctor sent a referl over to a diatrition doctor but I want stuff to get me by until I get in. I don't even know what to look for all the research I'v done is just confusing me even more since different websites say different things..... thank you in advance.. I'm trying to gain weight I was gaining the first few yrs of being gluten free but I went back word and stuff went down hill again... 
    • Toblerone
      I don't eat chocolate often, but I have never had a gluten reaction to Toblerone. I trust it to be gluten-free.
    • So I've been glutened....
      I am so sorry for how your feeling.  I can sympathize; over time I notice I couldn't have any type of gluten free products.  I read that since you don't have villi in your small intestines you have no defenses, meaning even the tiniest bit of exposure causes a flare up.  I even have to be careful when I purchase products by reading the labels to ensure it says manufactured by a nut, soy, milk and wheat free facility.  Be very careful, unfortunately
    • Symptoms despite strict gluten-free -- new here
      I have been reading a lot about leak gut syndrome which is new to the medical community in the sense that they don't know how to manage it.  If (you are female) make sure to do a yearly pap and uterine check to ensure there is no issues there.  If you are not a female then definitely confirm with an endoscopy if your small intestines are still damaged.  I am looking into doing the leaky gut diet to see if it will help, the book I am reading is "Eat Dirt" by Dr Josh Axe.  Especially since I notice anytime I am exposed to gluten by accident my symptoms are worse each and every time.  I know get severe back and rib cage pain, with bloating, gurgling and diarrhea with severe nausea.  I am willing to try anything and I am now reading this book and applying the diet to see if I can heal my intestinal lining.
    • Help
      Ok so I had my colonoscopy & endoscopy last Thursday. Don't get results until July 13th as GI is on vacation. I've had bad pain in my lower left abdomen that wraps around to my lower back as well for the past 4 days..even hurts to touch lightly. Went back to the ER & they did an ultrasound & CT scan. The Doctor said that I have "prominent" lymph nodes in the area that is painful as well as thickening & inflammation of my Sigmond colon? Um ok what is that all about? Kind of freaking out over the whole swollen lymph nodes thing. Has anyone ever dealt with this before? 😒

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
