St. Claire's is Saintly

Recent update in the Delphi avoiding corn forum:  St. Claires Tarts have added ascorbic acid to their formulation.  However, after hearing the plight of the uncorny, they have secured a corn free source of ascorbic cid and will incorporate it into their products beginning Jan 1st.  They expect old stock to be gone by Feb 1st. 

So, if you're avoiding corn and seeking some sweets, look forSt Claire's tarts without the ascorbic acid.  Or wait for some that were produced after Jan. 1st, 2010. 

I'd also reccomend contacting the company to thank them for continuing to provide safe sweets for us uncornies.

Corn free/gluten free list

In order to make the gluten free version of our corn free list a bit more streamlined, it is now converted into excel format and accessible through the link above.

(Just in case you need to cut and paste)

Note that I am now keeping track of products that have been removed either due to multiple corn reactions being reported or company ingredient change verifications by adding an x before the name of a product and using the strike out writing feature. I'll try to remember to put a note about why it's been removed.

Also, just a reminder that this list is intended only to be used as a guideline. There may be many more products out there that are corn free. If you know of some, let us know! When they are confirmed by trial and/or company confirmation they'll go on the list. Also, ingredients change quickly. Although the list is kept current to the best of my ability, I can't possibly keep up with potential ingredient or supplier changes. So always double check ingredients before using a product. If there is a product listed in error, or something has changed, let me know so I can update the list. Thanks!!!

Flour Tortillas

For those who can tolerate gluten, but not corn, Mi Casa flour tortillas have been confirmed corn free by a member of the Delphi forums. At this time, the Datem and monoglycerides are derived from Soy.

Amy's Mac & Cheese

Reactions had been reported to Amy's GF Mac & Cheese. The culprit has been found.

"They followed the corn trail and discovered that the company that makes the macaroni was making products that contained corn on the same line as the rice macaroni."

According to the poster, Amy's has had the company put the GF pasta on a separate dedicated line so this should no longer be an issue in the future.

Do use caution though until the corntaminated packages are off the shelves.
