Hiya,
I am going nuts eating only meat, vegetables and fruit. I am gluten, dairy, nut (including coconut) and corn free. Xanthan gum comes from corn so I can't have any of the packaged things. I can't have chips because they are fried in corn oil or they are cc with corn. I am not trying to complain, I am just starting to get D from all of the fruit that I eat. I can go through a whole watermelon by myself in 2 days. There has got to be something else for a snack besides fruit.

I cried at the grocery store today because I am having my monthly visitor and I just want some chocolate or a cookie or a chip or something! The lady in front of my had all of the makings for chocolate chip cookies in her cart. I seriously cried all the way home.

Any ideas?

Thanks

sou are h... Guar Gum is not made from corn so maybe you could make some goodies using Guar gum instead of xanthan gum... Also I don't have hte sites today but I do know that there are several cookbooks for completely alleregy free things. One may be Cybele ( don't remeber her last name) & perhaps check out Cooking For Isiah by Silvana .... Also there are many sites that have recipes for allergy free..

Check out these two places for ingredients.. Lucy's Cookies ( I think she is a doctor , maybe ! her things are very good, another is Home Free,I think they are gluten-free, peanut free, egg free,tree nut free, dairy free...

I think the more things we have reactions to the harder our journey becomes , plus more costly ....
It sounds like you are feeling food deprived... also thinkere is a site called Allergy Free. com perhaps you could find something on it as well...



hugs

Both of those companies use corn, Lucy's and Home Free. Bummer. It's in the vanilla and baking powder.

Thanks for the links. I appreciate it.

Q: Are your products corn free?
A: Enjoy Life products do not claim to be corn-free. Having said that, we want Enjoy Life customers to have as much information as possible regarding our ingredients. The powdered evaporated cane juice in 2 of our Boom Choco Boom bars (Dairy-Free Rice Milk Bar and Dairy-Free Rice Milk with Crispy Rice Bar) contain less than 1% corn starch as a processing aid. This product is labeled “may contain traces of corn.”

Natural flavors are often derived from corn alcohol. Three of our natural flavors: vanilla, caramel and berry are derived from corn alcohol. Our supplier guarantees all corn protein is removed in the distillation process and considers them to be corn-free. Also, although the citric acid in our Very Berry Crunch Granola is derived from corn, the fermentation process removes the corn protein. We always encourage people to make a choice based on their own comfort level with these ingredients.
