    Although corn is commonly thought to be safe on a gluten free diet, research continues to show that those with gluten sensitivity react to corn.  The link below shows a study illustrating that those with gluten intolerance produce antibodies to corn.  Have any of you had problems with corn consumption?

    Please share your experiences…




    my daughter and myself both can not tolerate corn and we have gluten sensitivities.

    Corn is something I react to. Unfortunately, it was something I used to crave a lot. But since being grain free for the last 4 months, the cravings are pretty much non-existant. My reactions ranged from a warm flush in my face to headaches.


    I have not knowingly had corn since I got my diagnosis but I bought a new supplement and started having stomach cramping and bathroom issues.  I didn't see anything listed in the ingredients, so I emailed the company, Country Life.  In the meantime, I stopped using the product, and the symptoms cleared up immediately.  It had been bad enough I was concerned about being dehydrated.  So, I am completely convinced that I cannot tolerate corn.




      The reply I got:  Country Life CoQ10

    Thank you for your inquiry.  We are a certified gluten free
    facility, thus all wheat, barley, oats, and rye would not be used in our
    products.  As far as corn, I would need to know which specific CoQ10 product you
    are interested in OR you can look at our products that are on our website and
    the allergens are listed.  If corn is NOT listed in the Does Not Contain
    statement, then there is a corn derived ingredient present.

    This is a common problem with supplements.  Thanks for posting your findings.Laugh

    I have had tried several vitamins, including the Country Life because they are certified as gluten free.  I have reacted to them all, and have now realized probably due to corn.
