I ate Quaker Instant Grits , and had an AD (allergic dermatitis) flare-up in a matter of 20 minutes. Is this gluten-free? I thought it was since its made from corn, and just has a few added vitamins in it. If not, could it be a matter of cross contamination or another allergy?

hate to break it to you but it could be one, the other, or both. many of us have a reaction to corn products. there is also a lot of discussion that only only a few companies have true gluten free oats. put that together and corn grits are a flair up waiting to happen.

if it makes you feel any better, i bough the same box for my parents for when they visit so they could have something besides eggs (that and they really like grits.) i seem to do ok w/ Quaker oats (though supposedly they aren't 100% purely gluten-free) and while 1/2 asleep i made the wrong package one morning recently.

I buy grits from Bob's Red Mill gluten-free line, however, I have eaten Quaker grits without problem. I happen to have a new package of it in my kitchen (I love grits), but have not used it yet since I happen to have gluten-free grits. But I have eaten grits in restaurants a few times, and I am sure they were not serving me Bob's Red Mill gluten-free grits, and i was fine ;)
