The corn-free diet is eaten by people who have a true allergy to corn. People with corn allergies need to avoid all foods that contain corn or corn products, as well as many miscellaneous nonfood items (such as some medicines and adhesives) that contain corn, in order to avoid the symptoms that occur when they are exposed to corn. To ensure you avoid corn:
- Read labels carefully to determine if a corn product is included and avoid any food if you’re not sure until you are able to verify that it is corn-free.
- Ask manufacturers of medications and other nonfood items if they use corn in their products.
Best bets: Grains and starches such as buckwheat, millet, oats, potatoes, rice, rye, and wheat
