Corn is hidden in as many or more products as gluten. One of the biggest problems is corn syrup. It is in almost all soft drinks (diet soft drinks contain artificial sweeteners made with corn), hard candy, ketchup, barbeque sauce, mustard, salad dressing, fruit juice, etc. Corn is used in many forms in medications. It is often used as a pill binder in the form of starch. Liquid medications are almost always made with corn syrup. I have been unable to find an over-the-counter analgesic (an entrepreneurial pharmacists would be wise to market one).

Here is the list of corn ingredients to eliminate. This was a much harder list to compile because there are no organizations like the Celiac groups. The asterisks indicate that the item could be made from corn. The frustration with the corn list is that so many things could be derived from corn. Play it safe and contact the manufacturer. Again, I do not claim to have every possible ingredient on this list.

Acetic acid*
Alpha tocopherol* (vitamin E)
Aragum gum
Artificial flavorings*
Artificial sweeteners
Ascorbates* (vitamin C)
Ascorbic acid*
Baking powder*
Broth*, especially in Tuna
Brown sugar*
Calcium* anything
Calcium citrate*
Caramel and caramel color*
Cellulose*, anything with cellulose in the name
Citric acid*
Coffee, instant*
Confectioners sugar*
Corn (anything with corn in its name, duh!)
Corn oil (some believe that the protein is removed so therefore safe)
Crystalline fructose*
Dextrin* (a roasted starch)
d-Gluconic acid*
Drying agent*
Erythorbic acid*
Ethanol (may be OK because of distillation)
Food starch
Fruit and Vegetables covered with wax* (hot water should remove)
Fumarate anything*
Fumaric acid*
Germ/germ meal
Gluco prefix on anything*
High fructose corn syrup
Inverted Sugar*
Inverted Syrup*
Iodized salt* (dextrose may be added to stabilize the iodine)
Lactic acid*
Malic acid*
Modified cellulose gum*
Modified food starch*
MSG- Monosodium glutamate*
Natural flavorings*
Packing peanuts, biodegradable
Powdered sugar*
Pregelatinized starch
Salt, iodized* (dextrose may be added to stabilize the iodine)
Sorbic acid*
Stearic acid*
Tocopherol* (vitamin E) soy
Unmodified starch*
Vegetable anything on food label*
Vinegar*, distilled white, debatable
Vitamin C and Vitamin E*
Vitamin pills*
Xanthan gum
Zea (corn genus)

Most of the BareMineral (bareminerals.com) cosmetics are corn free. Freeda Vitamins (freedavitamins.com) make a series of vitamins that are free of just about every allergen.

The thing that I worry about with corn is the new labeling regulations do not include corn, and I'm afraid that it will push many companies into using more corn additives so that they can say a product is wheat, soy or diary free. When the gluten free labeling takes place in 2008, I think it will be even more of a problem for us corn intolerants.
