I'd also prefer if it was free of corn (I think I remember somebody saying many tomato sauces had corn) but I'll take suggestions either way since I'm gonna challenge corn prior to a general food test panel in a week or 2.. thanks

If you have Muir Glen in the store you shop at, check that out. They would be in the health food section not the regular section. I don't have a can right now or I'd check the ingredients for you. I buy all Muir Glen canned tomatoes.

I recently tried this one and liked it:

http://www.risingmoon.com/products/sauce.php

It definitely appears to be corn-free. I tried the Merlot one. Here are the ingredients:

Water, Organic Tomato, Organic Onion, Organic Carrot, Organic Garlic, Organic Merlot Wine, Organic Mustard, Sea Salt, Organic Parsley, Organic Basil, Organic Italian Herb Blend, Organic Black Pepper.

I found my can of tomato sauce by Muir Glen. This one has no added salt but they sell both.

Organic tomato puree (water,organic tomato paste), organic onion powder, naturally derived citric acid and organic garlic powder.

What I don't remember is if citric acid is corn derived.

Citric acid is corn derived :(

I agree with lorka it's really easy to make your own sauce, then you know exactly what is going into it. I usually just saute some onion and garlic in a little olive oil, tear up some fresh (peeled) tomatoes and throw them into the pan, a little fresh basil and simmer until it gets saucy.

I make my own sauce, I use Contadina Puree. Ingredients: Tomato Puree, (Water, Tomato Paste,Citric Acid. That's all it says on the label! Stay away from the sauce though. The Sauce has High Fructose Corn Syrup in it.

It takes less than five minutes to prepare. Just add basil, oregano, garlic powder, onion powder, tablespoon of sugar, dash red pepper...really whatever you like. It's really simple. Just let it simmer for a while.You can use real garlic and onion if you prefer. (Just don't put ground fennel in it. Then it will taste like pizza topping.)(unless you decide you want to try that too.)

Give it a try and enjoy!

Sorry. I didn't know citric acid was derived from corn. Can it be derived from anything else?

Where did you hear Citric Acid was corn derived?

According to the Wikipedia Site Citric Acid is not derived from corn but mainly from lemons and limes. I guess if a product is in question just call the company.

Citric acid

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Citric acid is a weak organic acid found in citrus fruits. It is a good, natural preservative and is also used to add an acidic (sour) taste to foods and soft drinks. In biochemistry, it is important as an intermediate in the citric acid cycle and therefore occurs in the metabolism of almost all living things. It also serves as an environmentally benign cleaning agent and acts as an antioxidant.

Citric acid exists in a variety of fruits and vegetables, but it is most concentrated in lemons and limes, where it can comprise as much as 8% of the dry weight of the fruit.

Please let me know if you find a site that says otherwise.

Tiffany, I would like your recipe - I want to start making my own and planted a bunch of roma tomato plants this spring with that in mind.

I have been researching corn allergies, citric acid is on the very long list of ingredients to avoid. Almost all commercially made citric acid is now derived from corn because it's cheap.

At the Avoiding Corn Forum there is a relatively new thread talking about this topic: Avoiding Corn

scroll down a little ways on the left side menu and you will see "Citric Acid Uses"

I'd also prefer if it was free of corn (I think I remember somebody saying many tomato sauces had corn) but I'll take suggestions either way since I'm gonna challenge corn prior to a general food test panel in a week or 2.. thanks

If you want a premade sauce, I like Amy's Premium Organic Pasta Sauce "Family Marinara". The ingredients are: Organic Tomato Puree, Organic Onions, Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Sea Salt, Organic Garlic, Spices

....and it says on the jar "gluten-free"

Interesting article. I always learn something from this forum!

I called Contadina about their Puree and they said their citric acid is man-made and corn is not used in the process. So anyone with a corn allergy can freely use it! (Their Puree not their sauce.)

I also agree, Amy's has great sauces and even salsa. I don't know if their salsa has corn in it but it is gluten-free.

you eat amy's sauce with no problems? cause you're avoiding soy, corn, gluten, dairy, etc. as well, right?

also, I've avoided all amy's products for a while due to the cross contamination concerns, but you guys have been fine with Amy's tomato sauce?

Sorry I am so belated in getting back to you on this, I can eat this Amy's Pasta Sauce with no problems. And yes, I am avoiding soy, corn, gluten, and dairy.

As far as cc with Amy's, there have been a couple of different threads about this that I have noticed and some do have problems with her products while many others do not. It really comes down to the individual.

digging through the archives huh? I forgot about this post but thanks.. I might give it a try... if I remember right from the Amy's posts, it seems that certain products from Amy's are more likely have cc issues than other products...

Good luck if you do try it :)

Yeah, I think maybe it was the frozen meals that people were reacting to? But I might be wrong so don't quote me on that!

While they're all recipes, I did add three recipes for tomato sauces (one with meat) to my "As Promised, A Few Recipes" thread.

I have not been diagnosed yet. But just going off wheat(gluten) made me feel much better in only 3 days. I have been sick now for over 3 years. Vomiting until I thought I was going to die. Feeling like I was in a cloud, and scared to even go out in public. My niece in law has this problem so I tried going off of gluten and so far feeling better then I have in years. I was in the hospital for dehydration and pain. They couldnt find anything that would cause this problem. Can't get an appointment until october with a gastro dr. also on the tomato sauce question (Classico) is a good gluten free product. Thank you Barbara123

Ugh I wouldn't dare trust wikipedia for anything important. Citric Acid as an ingredient has nothing to do w/ citrus at least 99% of the time.

I did see one label somewhere that specified "citric acid (naturally derived)" recently, so that might involve citrus fruit.

The typical citric acid manufacturing process includes the fermentation of whichever source material. I don't recall what sources are most common.

I ran into some crazy-wrong nonsense at wiki recently regarding gliadin or gluten. Oh, I think they claimed gliadin was in barley & rye (hordein & secalinin would be right), besides the actual wheat it is in. I suppose the author's heart was in the right place but wrong is wrong when the goal is to be encyclopedic.

Yikes, I'd seen the cc talk re: Amy's but never connected it to my fav sauce.

I think every time I saw the talk it was about the frozen dinners etc.

For pasta sauce I love Amy's Org Roasted Garlic. No sweeteners either. So many organic sauces include evap cane.

For tomato sauce & canned tomatoes I'm another Muir Glen fan.

    • Hi Everyone!  Thank you for all your responses!  This site is so helpful and I appreciate everyone who replied to my post.   I was able to get an earlier appt with Maureen Leonard who was absolutely wonderful like you all said and after more testing and even a genetics test, my son now has a diagnosis of celiac disease.  He's been gluten free now for a few weeks.  He is doing very well on the diet so far.  He does seem to be sleeping better which was always a problem since he was an infant, so that is a good sign!  We test in 3 months and I hope that his iron levels go up. 
    • Are you substituting something for the PPI?    I'm not sure what meds will mix well with it, but you could ask the pharmacy or Dr. for advice on what might work.   I'm thinking you stopped something that may be helping in some ways, and are now allowing your symptoms to return.   If so, it makes sense to find something else to help with symptom control.   I don't know what products you have there.   We have Tums (calcium carbonate), Gaviscon (aluminum hydroxide with magnesium carbonate), Pepto and Kaopectate (same product), and Gas-X (simethicone).    I believe all of these can be taken with PPIs, but do check.    I don't know that Pepcid (Famotidine) can be mixed, but you could check that, too.   The Gas X really helps with the bloating and odd pains, as it breaks up the gas.  The Tums seems to help neutralize the acid and upset stomach / stomach pain.  These two are my mainstays.  You may have other products that could be as effective. Have you tried mixing bone broth with cornstarch or gluten-free flour to make a gravy?  Mix in some ground beef, chicken, or turkey, add some gentle veggies (carrots, or maybe a can of Chinese veggies?), a little bit of gentle spices for taste, and then put over gluten-free pasta or white rice.  Make a chicken sandwich with gluten-free bread.   Can you tolerate mayo?   Put a sprinkle of salt, pepper, and lemon juice on salmon, then coat with mayo and microwave.   Or mix some mayo with chicken or tuna for a chicken salad / tuna salad sandwich;  or eat just a scoop of it.   If you can tolerate dairy, Schar's newest version of table crackers are like saltines and are tasty.   If no dairy, try their breadsticks.  You could have either with soup or bone broth.   Schar's has enough fat to give you calories to help stave off weight loss, and you can add more by brushing a little butter on the crackers. You could try other casseroles with tuna or some lean ground hamburger.  Have you also looked at a possible new food intolerance?   I suffered for a few weeks before I figured out it was dairy for me.   Eliminating dairy wasn't enough.   I had to get rid of anything that might upset my stomach in order to start getting better.  I printed lists of low FODMAP, low acid foods, and low lectin foods, then selected only those foods that were on all 3 lists.   You might consider doing this with food lists that are right for you.  Hope this might spark some ideas!    
    •  I have a friend with MS, another with breast cancer and a third with RA.  At the same age my only problem is I cannot eat gluten!  So when I start getting frustrated about food I think about that and how lucky I truly am.  Once you get in the swing of it it gets easier and then you start to feel better which makes it all worth it.    Also when I first went gluten-free I read on this group about Mark's daily Apple and the Paleo community. I turned to that which was extremely motivating.  I've never seen so many people so excited about not eating gluten. It was a very positive energy and motivated me to find other foods to eat. Also, they love bacon! 
    • I know I needed the confirmation.  My hubby went gluten free per the very poor advice from my allergist and his GP.   It worked, but we really do not know if he has celiac disease.  He refuses to do a gluten challenge and I do not blame him.  We do know that gluten makes him sick.  He has been gluten free for 16 years.   So, when my GI suspected celiac disease, I could not believe it.  I had no tummy issues at the time, but was anemic.  Had been my whole life and it was blamed on a genetic anemia and menstruation.  I knew what being gluten free meant and I did not want to have celiac disease.  But,   I got positives  on the DGP and my biopsy.    Nothing like seeing something in writing.  I showed that to my extended family who was in denial as well.   I had a shared household with hubby all those years.  But after my diagnosis and the fact my kid started making things in the kitchen, we all went Gluten Free.  Great kid, but I could not trust her with my health!  If you DD has small siblings, consider all going gluten free.  They can eat gluten outside of the house.  That is what my kid does.
