Finding out you have a food allergy can be devastating.

Finding out you have a food allergy can be devastating. I think my first thought was, "What does that mean?" You ask your doctor and he says just avoid that food. It's just a skin test. They aren't entirely accurate.

I am going to attempt to give you ideas and recipes on how to avoid corn. It can be quite the challenge.

Sorry that my blog is evolving into a little bit of everything in life.

Where is the corn?

You can go by a list of corn ingredients, but they don't list corn if it is in a minute amount.  They don't list citric acid or lactic acid that was used to wash produce and meat.  They don't list the corn starch they powder the packaging with.  They don't list that the plastic was actually made from corn.  Recycled cardboard usually contains corn in some manner.  You have to ask your honey supplier if they feed corn syrup to their honey bees, because the bees can then cross contaminate their honey.  Some ingredients can be made from corn or from other sources.  We have to question where the ingredient came from.

I wish we could get corn listed on the label.
