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.

    • Karen, the iodine test was a test for DH used in the 'olden' days. Iodine would be swabbed onto a spot and then it would be covered with a bandage. If someone had DH the iodined area would break out in lesions. I don't know how but we do know iodine can activate the antibodies. That is why some of us with DH have to avoid iodine in foods until the antibodies have cleared the dermis. OP, if you haven't been tested for celiac you should be and if you have active lesions a biopsy done next to a lesion by a DH knowledgable dermatologist may help in diagnosis.

    • What's an " iodine test"?  Haven't heard doctors doing that to diagnose DH.
    • Hello! I've just been given my blood results and told they are highly suggestive of coeliacs but will have to wait till next month to see the gastroenterologist and who knows how much longer for a biopsy. My igA, igG and tissuetrans igA were all over 250 and tissuetrans igG was the only one that was normal. These results don't mean much to me yet but I'm told they are very high. I'm now quite fearful of how much damage I've gone to myself. I've had stomach problems for 25 years (just turned 40) and have often steered clear of too much bread and pasta for how bloated it made me feel but the symptoms were always vague and inconsistent so I kept eating. I had a couple of boats of gastro in the past few months (thanks kids) which I took a lot longer than normal to recover from which looking back may have been related. Then last Friday I had a blowout with wine, cheese, crackers, pizza and chocolate cake. I'm sure I've probably had blowouts like that before but I have never felt so sick before and am still slowly recovering. This is what finally prompted me to go back to my GP after being fobbed off so many times over the years. So I guess my question and my concern is whether there is still  chance of a false positive with levels like this? I worry what else it might be if not coeliac. I'm also worried that I may have done so much damage to myself that I will have several disorders going on! I'm also still recovering from last Friday and wondering when I'm going to feel better. I've stayed off gluten and dairy since my blood result a couple of days ago but feel like I'm allergic to food in general.  Thankyou!!    
    • Here's what the Klondike Bar makers say on the FAQ page of their website (August 2016): Are your products gluten free? Nope. They are not. We have not validated for gluten free. We do not operate allergen-free manufacturing sites, however we do have allergen management programs in all our facilities. The intent of these programs is to avoid unintentional cross-contamination of allergens between products. Our product labels adhere to the FDA’s strict regulations regarding declaration of ingredients and allergens. We do not use the terms “Natural” or “Artificial Flavorings” to hide the existence of any allergens. RECIPES CAN CHANGE. We strongly recommend that allergic consumers refer to ingredient declarations EVERY TIME they purchase processed foods.
