For those with corn allergies (I am one but they are under control thanks to my LDA (low dose antigen) therapy. It is a nightmare avoiding all that is in corn.
Having severe corn allergies can lead to some surprising challenges…there are some very surprising places where corn turns up.
Like envelope glue. And some anti-allergy meds. And even in some IV and IM medications.
Intravenous Vitamin C is a commonly used treatment for severe allergies, for chemo recovery and for other GI issues and the majority of the available brands are all corn sourced, corn carried, or corn based.
I once went into anaphylactic shock due to a vaccination that had a corn sourced ingredient.
So here is a list…blow your mind.
Aspartame (Artificial sweetener)
Barley malt* (generally OK, but can be contaminated)
Blended sugar (sugaridextrose)
Brown sugar* (generally OK if no caramel color)
Calcium magnesium acetate (CMA)
Calcium stearoyl lactylate
