  1. Peter, Great to know! We've been trying to sort out which corn byproducts to be careful of. Do you have a sense of which corn based products to steer clear of? Corn Meal, Corn Flour, and Corn Starch most obviously. Thanks!
  2. Thanks for the feedback! Really helpful
  3. My wife has Celiac and it looks like also has a corn allergy. Reading up on it, it seems that celiac and corn allergy is pretty common. You might try some time cutting out corn (Warning: It's really really hard to do... glucose, dextrose, corn starch, corn syrup...) If you can manage to eliminate Corn for a few weeks, and you're still having this problem... at least you know it's not corn!
  4. Hi there, My wife was recently diagnosed with Celaic and we are a newly gluten free household. We've done well so far, but there's a learning curve about what to do when out and about, and all the crooks and crannies that gluten can be hiding. I'm wondering what to do when she starts to have a reaction from something or other. Her primary symptoms are: Migraines & headaches Weariness / exhaustion Brain Fog Bloating & gas General digestive distress Neck / back pain I want to have a roadmap of things to do when this happens to reduce the duration of her reaction and feel less helpless. Are there things that make you feel better when you (or someone you love) has been glutened? If you suspect or find out after the fact that there was gluten in something you ate, do you have tricks or tips to dealing with it? Thanks!
