Is corn meal generally safe? What brand does everyone use. I haven't bought any for about 7 months and I am really missing it.

You'd think so but many are not. Read the label on a lot of "name brand" corn meal and it will not be safe (wheat). I have found that store brands often are just fine. So that's what I buy.

Thanks everyone.

I bought a store brand and it seems to be fine.

I'll have to check out Nuts.com more. I see they deliver to Canada now.

Wait until you see all the certified gluten-free goodies they have :)

They took it seriously when someone they know was DXed.

Hubs loves their medjool dates! Delicious diced dried fruits for granola bars. They also have veggies chips and gogi power bars.

The nuts are so jumbo and fresh! For a real treat, chocolate covered raisins.(they also have candies--like M&Ms, nonpareils and those chewy things, gummies?) The teff and coconut flours are ground fine for baking and are in resealable bags. The selection is huge. Okay, I'll stop now.....Obviously, I like their products! and they always include a "free treat". Customer service is top-notch. okay, really done now.

(but I am not a paid spokesperson, honest. :lol: if only! )

Lol, I guess I'll have to buy something from them. :)

No prob! You got it, sister. ;) Before DX, that was my signature dessert.

Give me a few hours to make dinner and come back and type it all out?

The main key to cornmeal is that the self rising kind will always have wheat flour. Look for pure corn meal... Martha White has a good one.

    • Below is copied & pasted from this thread:   My celiac doctor is Dr. Syed Jafri, in Webster, TX (just south of Houston -- basically the Clear Lake City area), saved my LIFE.  I would recommend him to the whole, entire world.  I was desperately ill, and am still struggling, and he's a wonderful, sweet man who listens and is very proactive in helping you solve whatever problems you're having.  I wish all doctors were like him.  I have to fight and struggle with too many doctors to just listen to me and what I live with, day in and day out.  He's not like that.  Good luck to you.     There are recommendations on this thread too:  
    • I never worried about cross contamination because i was originally told i was just intolerant. after going gluten free i felt so much better up until this last march. dairy and fructose have been giving me problems but both lactose and fructose test came back negative.  this is what my gi doctor emailed me today 
    • Any place you know of to find more info? Seems like I am still in so much pain/bloat, I am not even sure if I would pick the right 5 foods!
    • Don't freak out worrying about other maladies yet. You would be absolutely amazed at the things that can/will resolve on the gluten free diet. Some take longer than others -- neurological seem to take the longest for most people but really, I guarantee, there will be things you had no idea or expectation of resolving will. There were tons for me and then there were things I sort of "woke up one day" & said, "hey, that's gone and that & that & that". Other, larger things had taken my attention so I hadn't paid attention to the smaller things until...... On the other hand, not everything is related to celiac but I bet you wouldn't find a handful of celiacs who didn't say something very similar to what I said above. Yes, thyroid problems are common with celiac but I'll also tell you there are/have been people on here who were hypothyroid before dx but after being gluten-free for a while they actually went back to normal thyroid numbers. My husband is one (yes, we both are celiac - it happens). He was on synthroid for 20 years or more. Guess what? He's not on it anymore. We've had his thyroid panel done several times since about a year gluten-free & he is no longer hypothyroid. 
    • Yes please, that'd be awesome Having a fun time trying to reply on my phone due to broken screen but will be back on tomorrow after results of doctor appointment to get to the bottom of why they've given me seemingly wrong advice re: next steps. Yup I'll admit to pity, anger, frustration and outright fear, been through the mill of emotions in this first week that's for sure. One thing before I go for that; back when I was self-diagnosing I wanted a full thyroid panel (T3, T4 etc.) and also ESR & CRP checks for vasculitis and similar maladies. Now it seems from my reading they can often follow celiac so my worry level of those has gone up a notch, more blood tests ahoy it seems? Main reason for worrying about those is the nearly constant tight / tender head I have at the moment. Top and sides of scalp. Could be the stress tensing the shoulders and occipital muscles at back of head but after the celiac diagnosis being missed I'm fearful of anything else being missed. Did anyone else have this tight head feeling at the start? Feels like the skin is being pulled inwards, sometimes goes down for a few minutes here and there and gets worse when sitting I think. I see the term "brain fog" a lot but luckily don't seem to have too much of that at present, this is more a physical sensation.
