Our new enemy – CORN

Here’s a list of Gage’s food allergies that was stay clear of: beef, wheat, soy, sesame, celery, mustard, eggs, peas, potatoes, sweet potatoes, all nuts & fish.

Since doing the blood test yesterday to check for more food allergies we are staying clear of corn. CORN is in everything. It was in 75% of the baby food he could eat. While making him Gage safe pancakes this morning I learned corn starch is in baking powder. There goes our egg substitute for baking. Then at lunch I learned corn syrup is in the safe hotdogs he can eat. What else will you pop up in corn. Oh there goes a snack – popcorn!

This will not be a fun week and a half while waiting the results.

  1. I’m not sure if corn is the enemy, or only certain products from corn. Either way, I wish you luck.

  2. There are corn free baking powders out there. I know because I use one. And, yes, corn does seem to be in almost EVERYTHING.
