WOW! I knew it was in MANY things but I certainly do/did not know the extent of it. As it is not a food that I have to watch out for. I am sure it has to be the most difficult one to look out for. My hat goes out to all the corn allergic and I wish all food, and non food items could be clearly labeled. We NEED to know what we put in, on our bodies and what we are exposed to every day. Thanks Eldi for that article gonna go read it to my family now :swing

If anyone is having "phantom" (unexplained) corn reactions and uses a water softener, please check the type of water softener salt you are using. The ones that are called "System Saver" will contain corn derived citric acid. The NON-system saver kind is just salt...no citric acid. I learned this by calling Windsor Salt on the weekend because I noticed the bag I recently bought said something about "resin cleaning"...YUP...CORN DERIVED CITRIC ACID!
