I've been hesitant to try recipes with cornmeal because I haven't researched the gluten status. Bob's Red Mill not being packaged in a gluten-free package made me nervous about all cornmeal. So rather than start from square one, I thought I'd try here instead. I found a post that someone uses Kinnikinnick cornmeal. Anyone use any other brands? I've never seen Kinnikinnick cornmeal at our little natural foods store.

Thanks for the help!

Isn't all cornmeal gluten-free? I thought it was.

I saw some at W-mart that listed wheat.

I just had a big issue trying to find cornmeal and I posted it somewhere on here. I'm pretty sure I called Bob's Red Mill and was told their cornmeal is made on lines that make things with wheat. I went with Arrowhead Mills because they were the only place I called that said they thoroughly clean the machines and frequently test for any gluten.

it might have been the person you spoke to - Bob's Red Mill packages now say they are certified gluten free. That person might not know this. go to the web site here http://www.bobsredmill.com/gluten-free-flours-meals/ and they show a picture of the packages that are gluten free. It's possible some of the corn flours are not, but you can be sure that in that case those packages won't say "gluten-free" on them...as for me, I use BRM too, for grits, for fine cornmeal (for things like cake and spoonbread), and for medium grind (I use that to cover the pans when I bake bread) but for pancakes I prefer Arrowhead Mills.

Bob's Red Mill just came out with a gluten free line of corn meal. That's what I ended up buying. Now Ijust need to find a great cornbread and cornbread pudding recipe and I'm all set!

Yes ... Bob's Red Mill makes a wonderful Gluten Free Cornmeal...I use it for the Cornmeal Pancakes that I make...

Kids love these

Cornmeal Pancakes

1 cup of gluten-free All purpose Flour Blend

(I used Namaste Perfect Flour Blend, the xanthan gum is included in this)

1/3 cup cornmeal (I used Bob's Red Mill Cornmeal because it is declared Gluten Free)

1T Sugar

1 1/2 teaspoons Baking Powder

1/4 teaspoon Baking Soda

1/4 teaspoon salt

----------------------------

1 large egg lightly beaten (or equivalent egg substitute)

1 cup milk (or milk substitute, soy or rice, or almond milk)

1 Tablespoon Molasses

1 Tablespoon Butter Melted

-----------------------------

Lightly spoon flour blend into measuring cup and level with a knife.

Combine flour blend and the next 5 ingredients in a large bowl

Blend with a whisk.

In a separate bowl,add beaten egg, milk, molasses and melted butter

Add wet ingredients to dry and blend with a whisk lightly

The batter still should have some lumps.

Pour about 1/4 cup of batter per pancake onto a hot griddle that

has been greased or sprayed with non-stick spray.

Cook as you would any other pancake, till bottoms are lightly browned

Serve with gluten-free Maple Syrup

A Horse's Soul - Was it the Bob's Red cornmeal that says "gluten free" on the front or the regular cornmeal??

I have been using Arrowhead Mills cornmeal and just discovered that they also have a blue corn meal. I think my next corn adventure will be Blue Corn Dogs. I just made them with yellow corn (the day before I discovered the blue corn at Whole Foods).
