If you are corn-free then you should NOT eat xanthan Gum. Out of all the patients I know with reactions or allergies to corn they all react to xanthan. A better choice for the corn-allergy population is guar gum. Also, for the very sensitive all of the ingredients needed to have been sourced carefully to avoid corn cross contamination during harvest and processing. When I saw this product on the shelf I was very disappointed to see xanthan. I know a few companies who claim their xanthan is...

Thanks for sharing that. I've found it to be very individualized on corn issue. Neither of my kids ever had issues w/ xanthan. It's important to know how to I know sometimes xanthan cause issues not related to corn for people. Not all xanthan is cultured on corn. I know Bob's Red Mill brand is on wheat. Some have issues w/ guar gum as well since it's a legume and can cause GI issues in some.

There are definitely different sensitivity levels to corn products. I know we cannot use Bob's of any type because when we contacted them they even said there is a risk of cross contamination to corn because of their procedures. Guar gum definitely is an issue for some with legume but isnt derived from corn. There does seem to be a part of the population that both reacts to wheat and corn, but I know on the various corn allergy support groups it is strong recommended to avoid all xanthan gum...

The price of these are expensive compared to other pastas, but since they have so much more protein and fiber, maybe it would be a good idea to mix these with your current gluten-free pasta to boost the nutrition of your meal. (If you can't afford to use these solely.)

Please advice how the calcium/vit d helps, changes your recipes. This is the first time I have heard anyone using it in their baking. I am very intrigued by its use. - Thank you.

Re: Gluten-Free Peach Cobbler Recipe Free of Top 8 Allergens

Starkled ·
I can't really speak for the author, but I've used those ingredients in my cooking as well, so I can speak to why I personally used them. With having to eliminate dairy from DS's diet we found that we needed to find alternative sources of protein and calcium. Adding brown rice protein powder and calcium powder to baked goods was one additional way we could help meet those nutritional needs.
Comment

Re: Gluten-Free Peach Cobbler Recipe Free of Top 8 Allergens

Melanie Carver ·
Hi Christie, I didn't create the original recipe, but I can share my thoughts on using those ingredients in baking since I have used them as well. The brown rice powder helps increase the protein content of the dough. Many gluten-free flour blends do not have much protein and without protein, there isn't much "structure". Additionally, from a nutritional standpoint, you're increasing the grams of protein per serving by adding some brown rice protein powder. For the calcium, again, on an...

I've used calcium powder in baked goods too.....I use it in the form of calcium ascorbate. I've used it as a calcium supplement plus an acidifier for the recipe.Often I put a tsp or so into a muffin recipe to get more calcium in my family. None of us drink milk or an alternative regularly, so I know it's something missing in our diets. I know many use protein powder especially in gluten free baking to increase the protein content of their flour mix. It can help with the structure and...

And the taste test results are in! Both kids (2.5 and 5.5 yo) said "yummy!" then asked for seconds and asked that I put Qrunch on the shopping list.

Court Ruling Favors People With Food Allergies, Gluten Sensitivity and Celiac Disease

KFA News Team ·
J.D.'s family sued Colonial Williamsburg based on discrimination against someone with a disability. On May 31, 2019, the U.S. Court of Appeals of the Fourth Circuit ruled in favor of J.D. and his family. This ruling impacts people with food allergies, celiac disease and non-celiac gluten sensitivity. Allowing people to bring in safe food into a public place may be a necessary and reasonable accommodation. Food allergies are a disability under that Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA).

We were very sad to lose our safe morning cereal, casserole topping, chicken breading, etc. when Erewhon discontinued its crispy brown rice cereal. So, I was happy to find this post and looked into Edison Grainery. My note to them and their response is below.
