Ok So Do I Consider Modified Food Starch Glutan Or Not?

Recommended Posts

Mango, you can make fun of us, that is your option.

The discussion is more about respect than MFS. We all want to be treated with respect and we all deserve to be.

The soy discussion is a perfect example. In my heart, I feel that absolutely nobody should eat soy, I feel it is dangerous, the bad far outweighs the good, yet I never push those feelings on anyone. I also feel that no one should eat wheat anymore, we have improved it so much that it is dangerous now, yet I can't force others to believe that. Now that is respect!

Richard does not respect others, unless they agree with him. Yet, in my opinion, that is not respect, that is feeling superior. When he is called on his behavior, he double talks and makes so many excuses, then he tries to make it everyone's fault, except his. I have been a member of this board longer than he has and he has always treated me with disrepect, ALWAYS. He is a member of Delphi Forums and he is the same there. I am a member of several forums, Braintalk, Neurotalk, Celiac.com, Clanthompson, and several spiritual forums where I am a moderator. No one ever treats me like Richard does. After much reflection, I now realize, this is Richard's problem, not mine. There are people in this world who are never happy unless they are causing a disruption in some way.

God be with you Richard.

Thank you so much to everyone who added valuable info here. I think I'll play it safe and avoid the modified food starch for a while because I've been glutened a couple of times and that's the only thing that seems like it could be the cause. I'm hoping I'm not also allergic to milk, because then I'm not sure what I would eat. I've actually been pretty depressed the last couple of days :( . I haven't been eating hardly anything since I've gone gluten free and I've gained 12pds. This is so unfair. I'm starving and eating rabbit food and I gain 12pds??????? What in the heck is up with that? This really sucks!!

Thanks again for all the helpful info!!

I was making fun of myself. I really genuinely thought it was funny that I was reading about modified food starch last night. I guess I have an odd sense of humor and I thought I'd try to bring some lightheartedness to the conversation. I guess it didn't work. I really didn't mean to offend you. Sorry.

Mango--I am truly sorry, I didn't mean to make it sound like I was upset with you. Tensions run high sometimes and things do get over done, so to speak. There are just some people in this world that God uses as a test for us and sometimes I do fail that test. Truly sorry.

Okay...wait....I'm confused!!!! I missed for a few days and missed the drama.

Are FOREIGN sources required to follow the labeling law? I think I said in my original post that the yogurt was from Aldi. I believe them to be an international company so it is entirely possible that the MFS in the yogurt and the yogurt itself was from a foreign source. Would I be correct?

And then if it is a US source for MFS, i should not be made from wheat? So maybe I'd react to ONE product containing MFS but not all?

Am I making sense?

I really am being careful about it. I mean MFS probably isn't good for you anyway even if it's not dervied from an allergen! LOL Any food that has to be "modified" isn't good! LOL :D

I'm just trying to be careful. I'm only 15 days into this new life. And I feel much better. I want to keep feeling better. The few exposures I've had to gluten in the past two weeks have been awful!

THANKS!

A product must meet the labelling requirements of the country in which it is sold.

So, if you buy it in Canada it must meet Canadian rules. If you buy it in the United States, it must meet US rules. I have seen a number of imported products in Canada with Canadian labels stickered over the ones from the country of origin (often to meet the requirement for French labelling).

In my honest opinion, until the new allergen law is inforced in the way it needs to be, then unless I know the source of the modified food starch, then I do not trust it. When I do not know, I do not touch and that is why I have rarely ever been glutened in over 5 yrs.
