Modified Food Starch

Recommended Posts

I know this has probably already been dicussed but is it safe? I have been avoiding all products that say modified food starch. I will eat those that say corn. Am I right???

Modified food starch is almost always corn. Since January 1, 2006, in the USA, wheat must be explicitly disclosed on the label. Also, there is a list of companies/brands which have a policy of clearly disclosing all gluten sources. If the product is from one of them, you don't have to worry unless you see one of the words wheat, rye, barley or oat on the label.

This has been posted numerous times before, but here it is again:

Arrowhead Mills, Aunt Nelly's, Balance, Baskin Robbins, Ben & Jerry, Bertoli, Betty Crocker, Blue Bunny, Breyers, Campbells, Cascadian Farms, Celestial Seasonings, ConAgra, Country Crock, Edy's, General Mills, Good Humor, Green Giant, Haagen Daz, Hellman's, Hershey, Hormel, Hungry Jack, Jiffy, Knorr, Kozy Shack, Kraft, Lawry's, Libby's, Lipton, Martha White, Maxwell House, McCormick, Nabisco, Nestle, Old El Paso, Ortega, Pillsbury, Popsicle, Post, Progresso, Ragu, Russell Stover, Seneca Foods, Skippy, Smucker, Stokely's, Sunny Delight, T Marzetti, Tyson, Unilever, Wishbone, Yoplait, Zatarain's.

These companies/brands will not hide gluten under ambiguous descriptions. Just read their labels and you will know for sure. :)
