Food Restrictions, Limitations and Allergies

Corn Allergy   Previous - Next

Obvious corn.


Obvious foods and ingredients to avoid in the case of corn allergy include anything with the word corn in the ingredient list: corn, cornstarch, corn oil, corn flour, corn syrup, popcorn, corn muffins, and cornbread. Oil labeled vegetable oil might well contain corn, hence the safest oils to use are those labeled as being from a specific source: olive oil, safflower oil, canola oil. Starch not labeled as to specific non-corn content may be at least partially from corn.


Note that the federal government’s Food Allergen Labeling and Consumer Protection Act (FALCA) has not yet been extended to apply to corn ingredients.
