In Topic: Food Label Question

Your post has me confused.

I was led to believe that maltose was barley sugar.
You see maltose as a sugar in a lot of Asian sweets in Asian markets.

Do food labelling laws have to declare wheat if it's derived from wheat in the US?
Which, of course, doesn't help if it's made of barley.

If maltose is an ingredient alone and it does list wheat is it safe?
Does the fact that it's paired with corn make it corn.

but as far as health- we are being fed a crapload of crap :( i had a SEVERE reaction to High Maltose Corn Syrup that i wouldnt wish on most people... i was researching it, and basically they said that it's "relatively new to human consumption" so that "they" really dont know what it does to people... great...

High Maltose corn syrup.
Now that is a new one on me!!

Maltose is a sugar derived from barley so it's a no-no.

Maltose is also used as a sugar in many Asian sweets.

You can't kneed gluten-free dough.
It always has the consistency of thick cake batter.

And it only takes 1 rise before you bake it.

And even precsribe medications for it. To alleviate some of the symptoms without attempting to find the cause

I got the "I'm Basically Stumpted" from this board :)

A lot of docs even try to prescribe anti-depressants for it - I suppose they figure it's related to anxiety.
But to prescribe anti-depressants for your stomach/intestinal tract just seems wrong somehow, you know???
