I seen this on the news awhile ago but I came across the website. I myself can tolerate corn, or high fructose corn syrup. Nor can I tolerate beans very well. I thought this was interesting http://www.(Company Name Removed - They Spammed This Forum and are Banned)/gluten-free-society-blog/new-research-will-demand-an-evolution-in-the-gluten-free-diet-definitions/
Anyone else have an issue with corn

Oh... It won't let me post the whole Thing. But I guess research has supposedly found corn gluten to have similar effects and damages in people with celiac. Like I said I have found myself to be intolerant to any form of corn and beans
They also included reactions to certain beans. Now their questioning the directions and definition of a true gluten free diet. Any thoughts on the subject?

I have always had a problem with corn - bloated, burning diarrhea, pain in my abdomen - and at first my doctor thought I had IBS, but after asking me some other questions, she said she wanted to test me for Celiac. I was shocked to find out that I do have Celiac. I haven't touched corn since... Much happier!!!

There are many of us who have problems with corn, too. The corn 'gluten' is different from that in wheat, barley and rye and most celiacs can eat it without problem, but for many of us it is a separate intolerance we also have. All grain plants have storage proteins that work in the same way as gluten and it is possible to react to them also -- it is just not the same reaction as to the gluten in wheat, rye and barley. There is also a protein known as a lectin in all these grains and pseudo-grains like millet, quinoa, amaranth, and some of us are lectin-reactive also.

I knew corn made me bloat before I knew about gluten. Now, I also react to rice. I agree with the infomation found on that website, if it is the same one that has been banned, that I tried to post about. Perhaps not all need to be that strict... but for me it works! I am still eating beans, but eyeing the reactions cautiously. The people associated with that website have been really generous with me offering free videos and information on occassion.

I am unsure if I have Celiac specifically, but I am allergic to corn as well as having a gluten free diet.

How can you tell if your body is just taking a long time to heal or if you need to eliminate other foods? I made some chicken last night coated in corn starch (very good - from gluten-free pinterest board), pan fried in coconut oil and my daughter has been "glutened" since about an hour after we ate it. She's feeling terrible and so am I for not knowing how to care for her. I wonder if the corn starch is something we should avoid??
