Aren't corn chips usually made with lime-treated corn? Lime treatment may change the corn enough that your body sees it differently.

Yes, the more highly refined the corn is the more likely that I can eat it. So the starches in pills don't bother me and I can have some starch in baked goods now. It is any corn product that has any of the outer skin covering, like corn chips, masa harina, etc. that get me. Sometimes I don't know where to draw the line. As in sometimes some corn in pasta will get me and other times it won't. I guess I should judge it by its color :huh:

Same here. I can eat plain corn and use corn starch in baking, but sometimes feel "off" after eating a processed product like corn chips. For me, it may be some of the oils.

...which leads me to wonder if the Fritos have something else in them that makes them bothersome for you? maybe? just thinking out loud with you :)

Ingredients in Fritos..Whole corn, corn oil, and salt.
No preservatives.

Makes me wonder about the drying process? :huh:

I don't even know what the phrase "drying process" means. If you have questions about Fritos you might write Frito-Lay.

Interesting as I was checking here to see if anyone else has had a reaction to corn flour... I had bought Zatarain's seasoned fish-fri while vacationing in Florida.. I used it on lean pork chops baking them in the oven, plus we had freezer corn and fried potatoes... I knew I was in trouble instantly starting with stomach cramps and diarrhea... This really irked me... We had company and here I am sitting on the toilet... I was in misery as it was because, I had made a homemade apple pie and chocolate chip cookies Just the aroma was so tempting But I was a good girl, than I get sick...
