Since we all have different sensitivities, this should be considered a guide rather than a guarantee of corn-free status. This list is always changing as manufacturers are constantly changing their formulas. If you do have a reaction to any of these products, do let us know.
(for the newest version of the lists, please check the sidebar links)
Corn-Free Foods & Products List – Current only at the time of posting.
This is not a guarantee of corn-free, but foods that I in conjunction with others have investigated and tested. Since we all have different sensitivities, use this more as a guide and less as a bible. Some of these foods I haven’t tried and have relied on other’s experiences, as some of these products are either not available in my area or I must avoid them for other reasons.
Read labels every time you buy a product, and be cautious. If anyone has had problems with anything listed here, please do let us know.
Some items on the list have reported corn in them (mostly medications). These have been left on the list, with the source of corn noted on the side. These are left on the list as they may be needed in an emergency, and an educated decision is best at these times.
MC – Company/Manufacturer confirms or claims product to be corn-free.
MC 10/06 – Date last confirmed with company.
? – Items thought to be corn-free. Successfully eaten by at least one person, but more confirmation is needed.
Untested – Thought to be corn-free, but no one has tested it to my knowledge.
Reported Reactions – Reactions have been reported, but may or may not be corn related. Use with caution.
KFP = Kosher For Passover (may only be available during Passover season)
GFCF = Gluten-Free/Casein-Free
GF = Gluten-free (Gluten status is not always up-to-date on this list. Please check the gluten-free version of this list for more up-to-date gluten-free & corn-free products)
Alimentum (Ready To Feed) Baby Formula

Baking/Cooking Products: (basic ingredients for cooking/baking usually found in the baking aisle)
Locally produced Honey (preferably from a farmer’s market where you can double check source. Some store bought honey contains corn syrup to lower costs, some bees are fed corn syrup in winter and it gets into the honey)
Imported Honey – some imported honey’s are safe, esp imports from non-corn growing countries.
Pure Maple Syrup (make certain its 100% pure & not flavored with no defoamer - this sounds a lot easier than it is. Most often a maple syrup seems to do well with everyone for a while, then it doesn’t. Which is why none are listed here currently.)
SweetLeaf Stevia Extract, Powder ? (added 6/11)
Kal Pure Stevia Organic Extract Unflavored ? (added 6/11)
OTC Pharmacy Items: (for First Aid see specific section in Personal care)
Antihistamine: (none of these listed are 100% safe but may be needed in an emergency and will likely work for those just starting out. For safe antihistamines, it’s your best bet to get them compounded - see the end of this list for more details on how.)
Pfizer (medical inquiry dept) 800-438-1985. RX consumer line 800-879-3477 (8-8pm EST), OTC customer service 800-223-0182 (24hr) – company has been repeatedly reported as uncooperative in finding sources of ingredients for allergy issues. http://pfizer.com
