In Topic: Corn Sensitivity

Here is what I found on mannitol:

 

"Mannitol, a naturally occurring alcohol, is widely used in the food, pharmaceutical, medicine, and chemical industries. It is currently produced as a 25/75 mixture of mannitol and sorbitol (another sugar alcohol) by high pressure hydrogenation of 50/50 fructose/glucose mixture (corn derived sugars) in an aqueous solution at high temperature with a catalyst." http://www.ars.usda....q_no_115=189024

 

I am not sure if there is such a thing as corn free mannitol. Maybe another corn free expert on this board can enlighten us?

Thank you D. So mannitol in your B12 didn't bother you? It's usually made from corn, so I've been avoid it.

Desperateladysaved, would you mind telling me what brand of supplements was safe for you (corn free)? I take some Kirkman Lab's but I am still looking for totally corn free B12. Vit C is not easy to find either.

Thank you Squirmingitch and Kareng for your input!

Yes I have been gluten free for several years. My rash appeared after about 2 years gluten free. Contrary to my eczema it always flares up when I eat gluten and sometimes when I eat something processed. Hopefully I'll end up figuring out what it is. But right now I'm pregnant and my rashes are killing me...

To respond to your question about corn, I didn't know I was intolerant until I took a food intolerance test. I know these are not always reliable, but in my case it was spot on. Corn is everywhere (think xanthan gum, citric acid, flavorings, preservatives etc.) so it's difficult to pin point a reaction to it. However, since I went corn free I have been feeling much better and I can now tell when I get "corned". I am not saying that you are necessarily corn intolerant, but it's good to keep in mind that other foods can also cause problems.
