Corn. It’s not that complicated Or is it? Ok, so not trying to be corny but it can be complicated if you are allergic to it. I mean it seems simple, right? If you are allergic to corn, then don’t eat corn. The problem is that if you are allergic or intolerant to it, you may not know how to detect it because its in so many products. It is in food products that you very well may not have known it was in and can also be found in everyday items such as shampoo, toothpaste, dish detergent, crayons and many more everyday things people use daily.
If you have had any of the following symptoms below or you are thinking you may have food reactions to corn or other foods, a food allergy test may be perfect for you.
Here are some of the corn allergy / intolerant symptoms:
Hives or skin rashes
Cramps, diarrhea, indigestion or vomiting
The most obvious things to avoid are corn syrup, high fructose corn syrup, corn oil and vegetable oil, and the one I think hurts the most is corn flour which is in corn tortillas and corn chips. I know, ( big sigh here ) but it will be worth you feeling better in the long run! Like with any food allergy reactions, adjustments have to be made to the diet. There are always alternatives!
Also, be on the look out for these common foods that may be corn derived:
Jams, syrups and sauces
Snack foods and canned fruit
These are just a few, there are many more out there. The more you know the better prepared you will be! We care about you and want to guide you to feeling your best!
