Corn Reaction To Namaste Products
0

5 posts in this topic

Well, here I am having yet another night's sleep ruined by horrible stomach pain, bloating and all that loveliness.

This is my second day in a row of reaction to what I can only assume is corn slipping into my diet somewhere. The only thing I did both days was eat Namaste products. Has anyone else reacted to this product with a corn allergy or sensitivity? I am going out of my mind trying to figure out what it is so I can stop eating it.

At this point, I'm getting corn reactions about 2 times a week. It entails several hours of EXTREME abdominal pain and bloating, followed by cold symptoms, C, and feeling yucky for 2 days or so. I gotta say, I'm getting very frustrated.

Which Namaste products are you getting the reactions from? My 18 year old daughter, who has been allergic to corn since birth, hasn't reacted to any of the Namaste products we are using. I also react to corn, in addition to others, but not as strongly as she does, and I haven't noticed anything either. Maybe we're just not using the same products?

Yesterday was the pizza crust mix, and today the cheesy pasta....which I know makes no sense because it doesn't have xanthan gum which would seem to be the only thing that could possibly be CC'd.

I did some googling and it does seem that some people have reacted. >shrug< It is the only thing I've eaten that I didn't make myself 100% from scratch.

This corn thing is really kicking my butt. Everytime I think I have it under control I'm sick again.

I am corn sensitive, but the more highly refined the corn the less I react, so I guess I am lucky. A corn chip or piece of popcorn will kill me, but some cornstarch or xanthan gum is okay. :) I use Namaste because it has no potato starch or soy.

How funny, I'm the exact opposite. The more refined it is the sicker I am. I was cooking and grabbed powdered sugar before I realized it had cornstarch in it. Just stirring it into something (I threw it away 30 seconds later) and I had a small reaction. Caramel color will send me over the edge.

I was using the random Namaste product because they say they're corn, gluten, dairy and soy free. >shrug< Unless maybe I'm reacting to something else like the brown rice flour, which as I think of it could be a distinct possibility.

    • Hi all, my TTG/iga came back. It was 4. 0-3 is considered negative and 4-10 is weak positive.  In January it was 12 and before my endoscopy in October it was >100. it plummeted those first 2 months but seems to be taking more time to get lower. Should I feel optimistic? I guess 4 seems ok. 
    • Yes, i was 230 lbs upon diagnosis. My crp had been high for over 10 yrs. The first year i lost 70 lbs of water. Then i started to realize my continued irratic gi problems were more intollernces from processed foods as well as things like dairy and legumes. I went on an elimination diet and lost 20 more lbs. I finally stopped at 135 lbs which was still healthy weight, not that i had seen it until high school. Check your folic acid. Just found i am positive for one of the MTHFR genes meaning i cannot convert folic acid, which i lost stopping processed food, so i take 3000 mcg l-methylfolate daily. This is improtant because the body needs to detox all the gluten and chemicals i stored undiagnosed so when that was blocked i developed terible nerve pain. I am 10 years clear and things are amazingly better. I am finally adding in foods i could not tolerate like avacados and turkey. I had a pill cam and colonoscapy this year and there is no visible damage like there was 10 years ago. I think it was my clean diet and time to heal. I should have had a full vitamin panel when diagnosed but had no follow up advice except stop gluten. Am on d3, k2 as well. L glutamine helped heal my gi and d ribose gave me some blood sugar stability. I get these at amazon, NOW brand. My d3 is blue bonnet since its fish not lanolin. My k2 and l methyfolate is life extension. It is a long journey but it has become normal to live gluten free and my diet is so much healthier i think my longevity is increased because i have to eat this way. Plus the arterial sclerosis i had 10 yrs ago is gone, cleaned by my body and food. Well wishes.
    • Thanks for the well wishes Jmg. It appears that you & cycling lady think the sugar maybe our issue, let me clarify that's not our issue for it is manifesting as one of our additive intolerance exposure symptoms. One both my son and I have discovered over 2016. It's not a sugar crash type or a gi symptom in our case . But excellent info for consideration for others. My concern was about additives not listed on a label which is currently not required by regulations and the havoc it can cause the consumer .It's a clear cut symptom we get when exposed to a corn derived additive. At this juncture we are possibly sensitive to a highly processed flavor or coloring from a source other than corn that would be helpful to know what that source is per label  . That's where transparency in labeling would be helpful to me and others like me. The links I included on my post reflect concerns by others out on the web  to this concept. The food diary is helpful and has been to us in discovering these sensitivity issues, but not ideal when not all additives are labeled. the label says 100 percent juice but my body says otherwise . I am well aware from personal job exposure that the food industry is not required to list every ingredient particularly if it is not a top 8 allergean which is why I went look for the info to share. As you both pointed out and maybe even helped to bring to light the importance of sugar labeling my dream is to see it a step further with additives.      
    • Makes me wonder when the FDA is going to call gluten an allergen...
    • http://www.newburnbakehouse.com/gluten-free-artisan-bread I had no idea they now have artisan breads and now I am upset because these look amazing.  Is it possible that people emigrate to other countries because of the bread?    The wraps they have are really, really good. They roll without splitting and cracking.  OMG...they even have crumpets.  I really may have to move there.......... http://www.justglutenfree.co.uk/#Section2 We bought this at Whole Foods in London and the bread is quite good.  It makes delicious toast!  The rolls are very good also.
