why would gluten or corn in a soap be a problem unless you were going to ingest it?

Do you have a problem with corn? I don't know if they put that in dish soap. You might have to ask the actual companies.

If you can't get the soap all rinsed off the dishes, it could be a problem. I have found that the major ones like Dawn are gluten-free.

If there is corn in dish soap, it's probably been synthesized so it's no longer a problem. That's what happened to the corn in my carpet. You'll have to dig up that thread a few pages back. There's chemistry involved that transforms it. So it's my guess that's what they'd do if they put it into a soap product. Maybe not, though.

I have severe reactions to corn (same as gluten), and have no problem with my dish soap. I use Dawn, the blue one.

I imagine if you have very soft water, you might not get the film off of your dishes. In that case, you should use a dishwasher. Not just because you want the film from the soap off the dishes, but you need to make sure nothing cross-contaminates because you will have a hard time rinsing everything off your dishes - corn, gluten, or lactose. I hate soft water.

I'm guessing from your signature that you think corn might be your last offending food? I'm crossing my fingers for you that it isn't. Corn is in so many foods. I think it's harder to keep a corn-free diet than a gluten-free diet. Still, you can do it by eating mostly unprocessed foods, and by becoming a personal chef.

hmm, I wonder what type of water mine is considered.

well based off everything I really can't tell for the life of me if it's just CC, corn or maybe even fructose.

It's incredibly frustrating lol so alot of the time in desperation I just throw dumb questions out there >_>

thanks for the crossed fingers btw =P

I've tasted the soap in over easy eggs, It made me wonder if small amounts were getting ingested, I figured it wouldn't hurt to ask.

A question to a question, how very helpful.

First - Mummy is new & didn't know why it might matter. Soap residue was probably something she hadn't considered.

Call or email the dishsoap company and ask. Then, if you feel you got a helpful answer, you could copy it to this thread & maybe help someone else with a corn problem.

that's why I kept it tame >_> it's a neutral response in case she meant it in the mean way lol

Corn in soaps makes my skin tingle/burn (like prickly pins and needles) and itch really bad. For example, I was bathing my son a few weeks ago with his regular Aveeno baby body wash and my arms felt prickly like painful pins and needles, so I switched him to what I've been using: Gluten-Free Savonnerie shampoo and local goats milk soap from our farmers market. (Why it didn't occur to me to switch him sooner, I don't know. I blame old age and pregnesia!)

I use Earth Friendly Products Dishmate dish soap, as do a lot of other corn allergy sufferers I know from another forum and have had no corn problems.

I am gluten-free and DF by choice, since I started having reactions to corn a couple of months ago and also because I have an autoimmune disorder, which my new diet seems to have helped. But since I am only gluten-free by choice, I don't know if the Dishmate is gluten-free or not. HTH!

    • Food tolerance issues post-diagnosis
      In light of the studies that found some probiotics that are labeled gluten-free yet tested over 20ppm I wouldn't touch them. Now those would be the powder or pill forms. Yogurt is not affected by that. Since you don't have a problem with dairy then I would say eat some yogurt every day. I like Chobani Greek because it has more kinds of cultures. Remember now that powder or pill forms of probiotics do not come under the gluten-free labeling law. The same for OTC & prescription meds. You need to check every single one of those. There are a few online sites where you can check things like that or ask here but as far as prescription meds -- call the manufacturer EVERY TIME. I also wanted to tell you in case you didn't already know that since celiac is genetic and can present at ANY age then all your first degree relatives need to be tested every 2 years in the absence of symptoms and immediately if symptoms present between the 2 year periods. As far as the digestive enzymes go, I tried Digest Gold for a short time & it really didn't seem to do anything for me however I will say I had a lot of issues going on at the time so I might not know if they helped or not. I decided to quit them in order to take that out of the equation so I could try to pin down what was causing me distress. The fewer things in the mix you know. I have heard people report the same as your consultant said. Some say they helped & some say they didn't. Remember Jammy, you're just in the beginning stages. I KNOW you want to heal & heal FAST. Been there, done that! It's like this: you didn't get sick overnight & you're not going to heal overnight. Patience is the watchword here. It's hard I know! You just want to get on with your life. We can all relate.  Again, I'm going to say to eat foods easy on your gut. WELL cooked foods. No raw carrots, coconut, nuts & stuff like that. Easier on your gut would be nut butters.... peanut butter, cashew butter, almond butter etc.... It's sort of like being a baby ---  soft, easy to digest foods. Bone broth is a great healer for you gut & extremely nutritious as well as being easy on the digestion. Here's just one recipe: http://wellnessmama.com/5888/how-to-make-bone-broth/
    • Food tolerance issues post-diagnosis
      Thanks for the tip! Will try that out in the next few days. By the way, has anyone had any joy with probiotics or digestive enzymes in terms of symptom relief/speeding up the healing process? I asked my consultant about this when I saw him last week and he said that some people find them beneficial while others don't, but obviously I'm keen to try anything that may help, with uncomfortable fullness/bloating/gas still being my main issue  - is it worth giving them a go?
    • Are The Following Gluten-free?
      I realize that this is an old thread but I would just like to say something about label reading. Just because a product says gluten free on the label doesn't mean that you don't have to read any further and can have complete trust in the product.  There are a lot of products that state that they are gluten free on the package and then you find out that they are processed in plants that also produce wheat products. If you are super sensitive, you need to know that information. I am afraid that there is no escaping reading labels in supermarkets unless you know that the company makes it's products in a truly gluten free environment (even then you should read labels because ingredients can and do change, even in products made in gluten free facilities), It's a pain to stand there and read labels but if you are super sensitive, you might just have to do that. For example, I am gluten and lactose intolerant but also sensitive to nuts and sesame. While it may be fine for other gluten intolerant people to eat something that's labeled gluten free which is produced in a gluten free facility that also processes nuts, for me it is not.. 
    • Golden Bell Pepper Soup (Gluten-Free)
      Dipping your spoon into this bell pepper–sweet potato combo is like dipping into a bowl of sunshine. It's stunning—and the perfect antidote to a gloomy winter's day. This soup also freezes well, so if you're not serving a crowd, store the leftovers for a later date (or make a double batch). I like to enjoy this soup accompanied by my Massaged Kale Salad with Spicy Hazelnuts View the full article

      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.
