Here is an interesting movie clip about corn allergy. Towards the end it says to contact FAAN for more information on corn allergy. I went to the FAAN website and did a search for "corn allergy" and came up with absolutely no information about corn allergy...

Why am I not surprised??????

I just sent an e-mail to both FAAN and the Christine Marquette (the speaker in the video)

I'll let you know if I hear back from either!

Recently I happened across an Internet website eHow that has many excellent short videos on how to live with various food allergies by Christine Marquette, a registered and licensed dietitian with the Austin Regional Clinic in Austin, Texas.

In this video http://www.ehow.com/video_4984814_live- ... -corn.html she advises viewers to contact Food Allergy & Anaphylaxis Network (FAAN) or visit the website as a resource on corn allergies.

I took a quick look at your website and used your search button but I was unable to find any information on corn allergies. Will you be updating your website to include information on this allergy?

As you know food allergies can be very severe and even life threatening. An allergy to corn is very difficult as it is prevalent in so many products. Although it hasn't been deemed as one of the priority allergens, yet. It is a growing concern.

Thank you for doing this...

Oh, I do love writing letters! :roll:

The problem is when you have to use their contact format and they require a zipcode...I simply remember the TV show Beverly Hills 90210 and insert that. :oops:

Here is an excerpt of an article about food allergies with reference to corn/corn derivative allergy. It was written almost 58 years ago!

<<Dr. Theron G. Randolph testified that corn was second only to wheat as a specific cause of chronic food allergy.>>

Here is a very current (2010) "Corn Free Diet" article. Although it does have a lot of useful information, it does not include all of the things to avoid with a corn allergy:

This is interesting...might help our cause. OK...so, if corn starch can be an occupational allergen in the manufacture of pharmaceuticals, then why can't it be an allergen for the rest of us????

<<<Maize starch should be considered as a potential occupational allergen in tablet manufacturing.>>>

Huffington Post blog post by Robyn O'Brien on the "Corn Sugar" debate:

Quote:
I'm sure you've seen it. The new campaign for high fructose corn syrup in which the Corn Refiners Association has decided to rebrand and rename their product. Reflecting on changing consumer sentiment around high fructose corn syrup and declining sales, the Corn Refiners Association has petitioned the FDA for a name change to high fructose corn syrup. They want to call it "corn sugar".

The ad campaign is brilliant. Worried, they ask? We are, too, they claim.

Yes...and it won't be long before they drop the "corn" from the "corn sugar" and then there is no way of knowing what kind of sugar is being used.
