Corn Reaction To Namaste Products
0

5 posts in this topic

Well, here I am having yet another night's sleep ruined by horrible stomach pain, bloating and all that loveliness.

This is my second day in a row of reaction to what I can only assume is corn slipping into my diet somewhere. The only thing I did both days was eat Namaste products. Has anyone else reacted to this product with a corn allergy or sensitivity? I am going out of my mind trying to figure out what it is so I can stop eating it.

At this point, I'm getting corn reactions about 2 times a week. It entails several hours of EXTREME abdominal pain and bloating, followed by cold symptoms, C, and feeling yucky for 2 days or so. I gotta say, I'm getting very frustrated.

Which Namaste products are you getting the reactions from? My 18 year old daughter, who has been allergic to corn since birth, hasn't reacted to any of the Namaste products we are using. I also react to corn, in addition to others, but not as strongly as she does, and I haven't noticed anything either. Maybe we're just not using the same products?

Yesterday was the pizza crust mix, and today the cheesy pasta....which I know makes no sense because it doesn't have xanthan gum which would seem to be the only thing that could possibly be CC'd.

I did some googling and it does seem that some people have reacted. >shrug< It is the only thing I've eaten that I didn't make myself 100% from scratch.

This corn thing is really kicking my butt. Everytime I think I have it under control I'm sick again.

I am corn sensitive, but the more highly refined the corn the less I react, so I guess I am lucky. A corn chip or piece of popcorn will kill me, but some cornstarch or xanthan gum is okay. :) I use Namaste because it has no potato starch or soy.

How funny, I'm the exact opposite. The more refined it is the sicker I am. I was cooking and grabbed powdered sugar before I realized it had cornstarch in it. Just stirring it into something (I threw it away 30 seconds later) and I had a small reaction. Caramel color will send me over the edge.

I was using the random Namaste product because they say they're corn, gluten, dairy and soy free. >shrug< Unless maybe I'm reacting to something else like the brown rice flour, which as I think of it could be a distinct possibility.

    • Here is another point.  My hubby went gluten-free per the poor advice of his GP and my allergist.  It worked.  A tough first year, but he got well.  Thirteen years later, I got diagnosed with celiac disease.  I was shocked!  😱.   Does he have celiac disease?  We will never know because we can not afford to have him do a challenge.  He refuses and I can not blame him.  He knows he will be very sick!   The point?  I am so lucky that we both can not have gluten.  I never worry about him making me sick or vice versa. We made the house completely gluten free for  1) our health and 2) the fact that our kid started helping in the kitchen. Kids make mistakes and I personally need a safe haven.  She wants gluten?  I buy prepackaged stuff and she takes it to school.  All parties and events at my house are gluten free.  Lots of work, but we stay healthy.  She does not have celiac disease.  When she is preparing for a celiac test,  I send her on the porch to eat cookies or bread or whatever floats her boat.  We travel in a gluten-free RV.  I have five sizes of ice chests.  We just have to be prepared for any event.   How can we live this way?   We love feeling good.
    • Freize is right, you need to think about your environment.   Based on that a study I posted for you, you will note that the patients who were diagnosed with refractory celiac disease and THOUGHT they were diet compliant found that they WERE NOT diet compliant.  How is this possible?   This is way out there, but unless you are growing all your own food, you don't really know if it is gluten free.  In the US, we do have laws to help protect our food supplies (no perfect, but a start).    I can not speak for India.  For example, what about your soy?  It can be contaminated by the farmer as it is often rotated with wheat.  Here is an article by Jane Anderson who has celiac disease.  She is very strict as she has DH (celiac rash), but she cites Trisha Thompson who tests foods for gluton contamination, The gluten-free WatchDog (like Consumer reports).  She found that soy which is naturally gluten free, but can be cross contaminated by wheat: https://www.verywell.com/is-soy-gluten-free-562371 so, start thinking about your food supply. As far as a negative TTG IGA or TTG IGG?  I test negative to both.  Only the DGP IGA has ever been elevated in my blood tests (even repeats), yet I had a Marsh Stage IIIIB on my biopsy.  Have you had a DGP IGG?  (I do not see this in your posting).   http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ These additonal celiac tests might help you feel confident that you have celiac disease and not something else that is damaging your villi.  But remember, some  folks have celiac disease even with negative blood.  I am not IGA deficient, so this is an area I have not researched.  Not to mention that some celiac researchers do not think that the celiac  antibodies tests are good for diet compliancy.   I wish I had better answers for you.  Try a grain free, whole foods diet of meats, fish, eggs, and vegetables for a while.  All food prepared by you. Who cooks your food now?  Is your home gluten free?  Cross contamination at home?  Kissing a loved one.  We had a doctor with celiac disease who was getting glutened by her little children who were consuming gluten!  
    • I won't say I will never eat out but I can't see me eating out for the foreseeable future. Even then, I will most likely only eat at a dedicated gluten free place. I am extremely sensitive to the tiniest amount of gluten and it's just not worth the risk to me. Eating out is playing Russian Roulette as far as I'm concerned and I'm not ready to play that game yet.
    • You are right. The weirdest part is that I feel fine, however, I am sure cross-contamination is doing damage even when we don't think it is.
