Durum is an older wheat specie and it has AB genome and it doesn't have the D genome so it doesn't contain alpha gliadin. Corn steals minerals and witamins from the body and blocks the absoprtion of them. Which one is worse?

Probably the corn since most of it is now GMO. But this is sort of like asking which is worse cobra venom or cyaninde.

Selective breeding and GMOs are not good reasons for avoiding peas and corn. Sure, carb content is enough to scare off low-carbers, but like you said, you're not a low-carber. Toxins (i.e. anti-nutrients) are largely bullshit. The addage... (more)

I say yes, corn tortillas (from the health food store only! non-gmo, no more than 4 ingredients, cost about $1.25/dozen) are fine if you can tolerate them. I personally see them as a "sometimes food" maybe two times per month max, no more than 2... (more)

Conventional, no. Organic from my garden or a local farmer, hell yes, all season long. I don't have any reactions to corn and as long as I don't eat it several days in a row, it does not adversely affect my blood glucose levels.

I have a question concerning corn. I know corn is a grain, but is generally gluten free. In the Paleo/Prinal diet, can you eat corn if it is of the non-GMO (heirloom) variety? Thanks for your feedback.

Screw paleo on holidays, eat the standard fare, it's not (likely) going to kill you. Probably the best alternative you could do is make gluten-free cornbread (Google knows how to make this) and use that to make dressing.
