Ragu Ingredients

Recommended Posts

I noticed that, "Cheesy Ragu -- Roasted Garlic Parmesan" has the ingredient -- High Maltose Corn Syrup.

I thought that maltose was dehydrated barley malt syrup -- and I would certainly stay away from it.

But what is High Maltose Corn Syrup?

Maltose is a highly refined simple sugar obtained by enzymatic breakdown of starch. While it can come from any starch, the end product is a gluten-free sugar.

High Maltose Corn Syrup is corn syrup processed to maximize the Maltose content. It is from corn, and is definitely gluten-free. It is closely related to High Fructose Corn Syrup, which has come under criticism from several sources. None of these concerns are gluten-related. Most have to do with whether the body recognizes the sugar and properly responds by secreting insulin.

Diagnosis by biopsy of practically non-existent villi; gluten-free since July 2000. I was retested five years later and the biopsy was normal. You can beat this disease!

Also, Ragu is a Unilever company--they will clearly list any gluten on the label.
