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.

These are both clearly not "paleo" - they're both the product of selective breeding and corn in particular is pretty much all GMO. That aside, why should we avoid either of them? Keep in mind that I'm definitely NOT low carb, nor dogmatically... (more)

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)

You can eat them, sure. They're not "ideologically Paleo" but I do eat a little corn from time to time, mostly in the form of masa harina and grits. I wouldn't make it a staple, though.

Is the corn oil from GMO corn in Kirkand roasted seasoned seaweed?

Myth 0 · April 21, 2013 at 9:16 PM

Since most corn is GMO, probably. Since they don't specifically advertise as non-GMO, probably. Since it is Kirkland brand, probably. Corn is a grain anyways so isn't technically Paleo. Short Answer: Probably.

I ate pasta made only from rice flour and non gmo corn. I ended up having a lot of stomach pain that lasted from 8 at night to 7:30 the next morning. Grains are still grains even if non gmo.

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.
