Gluten Free Corn Meal?
0

15 posts in this topic

Hi,

I am very new at trying to eat gluten free. I assumed I was doing so and then it hit me... I did not know if the Shurfine corn meal I was eating is gluten free. It would appear to be according to the ingredients list but it is not listed as gluten-free on the lengthy list provided by Shurfine foods.

Can anyone tell me if Shurfine brand yellow Corn Meal is gluten-free and if not, can you tell me of any brands that are gluten-free?

TIA

Greg

What are the ingredients listed?

INGREDIENTS:Degerminated Yellow Corn Meal, Niacin, Reduced Iron, Thiamine, Mononitrate, Riboflavin, Folic Acid.

To me that looked OK but I though perhaps the possibility of cross contamination may be why they don't list this product on their gluten-free listing.

The ingredients look fine to me. What listing are you referring to? Can you post the link?

Shurfine foods gluten-free list:

http://www.afmidwest.com/All_About_You/PDF...free%20List.pdf

I also found the following pdf for the "Our Family" brand of foods for anyone interested.

http://www.ourfamilyfoods.com/images/glutenfree.pdf

I find the easiest way to search the list is to enter the UPC number from a food package into a search on the computer (or PDA when in the store) rather than spelling out the food name as there is less chance for error, at least for me.

The first list is 2.5 years old, and doesn't include any brand names "Shurefine" (which I'm assuming is their store brand?)

This is one reason why "lists" are a problem.

Cornmeal by itself is naturally gluten free so, unless this is a mix with other ingredients added, it would be gluten free.

You may want to check labels for statements like "processed on eqipment that also processes wheat" or "processed in a facility that also processes wheat".

I emailed the company and asked the following question:

Hi,

Can you tell me if your Shurfine brand Yellow Corn Meal is gluten free?

The UPC number is 11161 15813

Thank you,

I just got a reply to that email which was the single following line:

"yes, there is just corn gluten."

So, I guess they are saying it is gluten free as far as the celiac is concerned.

Both Shurfine and Shurfresh are the brand names of the products and are the store brand. All of the items in the list are either Shurfine or Shurfresh.

Arrowhead mills makes an organic cornmeal that says gluten free on the package. I also tested it with one of those home kits and it said that it was gluten free too.

Note to more sensitive celiacs : Kinnikinnick is dedicated gluten-free, while Arrowhead Mills (and pretty much any random store brand) isn't.

Thanks Raisin, and also to the more sensitive celiacs, when I looked at the test 9 hours later I could see a very faint positive. I spoke too soon about it being negative. I think I am going to try grinding my own.

Hello dilettantesteph, has anyone tried the Domata flour? I got some a few days ago.....WOW is it ever good, plus it is certified by the Celiac Sprue Association. It is manufactured in a state of the art, Wheat, Barely, Rye, and OAT free facility and the supply chain is also certified. I tested it with the strips and also have now eaten it for three days in a row with nothing! I am jumping up in the air and my heals are clicking on this one!! Maybe it is just me, but I can't get over how good it is! Today I used it for breading on some chicken breast chunks and lightly fried them in some olive oil. Yee ha! Yesterday, I made a flat bread with it by putting a little oregano and basil in it put the water in it, greased a pan with olive oil, baked it for about 25 minutes, then tore pieces off and dipped it into some more olive oil, basil, oregano and a dash of salt. It is super light and fluffy and not grainy at all. It was listed as a new product at our local super store. Not sure how long it has been out. Mike

    • You're welcome ritamichelle. Yes, if you are biopsy confirmed then it will be much easier to get your daughter tested. 
    • I agree that In people that have celiac there usually is a trigger. It can be physical or emotional stress as the article states. I wonder though if the people they say 'don't have the genes' are folks that simply have rarer ones. There is research on more genes. I discovered it when I was writing a paper for a class. It was a very long time ago in 'computer age' and my bookmarks died along with the computer I was useing. But it is out there on peer reviewed sites like Lancet, NIH etc. Since celiac was rarely tested for even a couple decades ago there are many folks that may have celiac in their family but it was never known. That was the case in my family. I am confident about that.  I always wondered why my Mom seldom left the house, spent a lot of time in the bathroom, was tired all the time and was always holding her hands the way she did.  Then I became her.  We have so much to learn about celiac. Personally I dislike the term 'NCGS' because it makes folks think at times they don't need to be as strict and it isn't as serious. Too many are told that their biopsies are negative and they then get the NCGS label if they had positive bloods.  I consider celiac to be a spectrum disorder. Not all celiacs have gut impact or at least haven't developed it yet. I had the neuro impact and DH from shortly after I was impaled as a young child. It was many years before any severe GI issues arose.  
    •     http://www.takepart.com/article/2014/08/11/coffee-adulterated https://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/how-was-your-morning-coffee-did-it-taste-like-mud-v6rfdmrrr92 http://grist.org/food/coffee-taste-like-dirt-thats-because-it-might-be/ " Using liquid chromatography, which identifies the individual chemical components of a mixture, the Brazilian scientists found wheat, soy bean, brown sugar, barley, corn, and rice commonly interspersed with the grounded coffee they tested. Large amounts of wood and dirt were also prevalent, an issue not only for purists who prefer to drink their coffee black, but for those with potential allergies to the unknown additives. As TIME reports, the scientists are identifying the rogue coffee with increasing accuracy:" http://www.bodyandsoul.com.au/health/health-news/is-there-wheat-hidden-in-your-coffee/news-story/a3d53a7c36b76156f08d89eab6a396b3   -----   I have also read other references to coffee upsetting those with celiac.   Personally I have a family history of officially diagnosed celiac even though I have never been diagnosed myself..then again Ive never been properly tested. My drs just keep saying the following symptoms are anxiety and wont refer me to a gastroenterologist for:   Loss of bowel control, pale coloured stools, severe bloating, passing undigested food, ataxia, vertigo, migraine headaches, feeling feverish, repeated ulcers on my tongue and in my mouth, feeling generally ill and sleep issues (mostly falling asleep when I dont want to but rarely insomnia).   Because they insist its anxiety as routine blood tests are normal they wont refer me to a gut dr. They did do a blood test for celiac once on my request but it came back negative. This does not phase me when it comes to my suspicians that gluten is an issue for me because:   1 I was on a gluten free diet at the time, hence why i was well enough to crawl to the gps office. 2 I have a family history of celiac 3 MY symptoms are alleviated by a gluten free, dairy free, oat free, corn free diet..and lately, coffee free it seems. Coffee has indeed become a problem for me recently. 4 I could not tolerate gluten based baby foods as an infant. I was admitted to hospital as a baby for being underweight because I was vomitting all my food up. They put me on gluten free formula and i was fine, stopped being sick and gained weight. I could have grown out of it but considering the symtpoms i get on a gluten based diet, i really doubt it.   -----   When it comes to the coffee, food manufacturers will do most anything to make profits if they think they can get away with it. We live in a world where money is most important and if they do get caught...they can always claim they have no idea how the barley got in there!    
    • If you have had a sleep study and been diagnosed, you have sleep apnea. It's definitely different than waking up to go to the bathroom. Are you using your cpap every night for The entire night. Naps too? SA can actually cause death so it's very Important for you to use it every time you sleep. Do you follow up with your doctor yearly? Sorry to sound like the SA police, but I know someone who died from it. He wasn't using his cpap anymore, thought it was uncomfortable.     What Is Sleep Apnea?   Sleep apnea (AP-ne-ah) is a common disorder in which you have one or more pauses in breathing or shallow breaths while you sleep. Breathing pauses can last from a few seconds to minutes. They may occur 30 times or more an hour. Typically, normal breathing then starts again, sometimes with a loud snort or choking sound. Sleep apnea usually is a chronic (ongoing) condition that disrupts your sleep. When your breathing pauses or becomes shallow, you’ll often move out of deep sleep and into light sleep.
