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?
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)
When I ingest wheat (and sometimes when I ingest cow dairy) I get a delayed allergic reaction at night in the form of acid reflux. The casein in cow dairy (even happens with hard cheeses, but never happens with sheep, goat, or buffalo dairy)... (more)
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'm trying to implement some of the ideas in The Perfect Health Diet (P.H.D.) and want to switch my sweetener to one that doesn't have fructose. I found this... (more)
Have you seen the rats? http://www.naturalnews.com/037249_gmo_study_cancer_tumors_organ_damage.html Use honey or fruits (very ripe bananas) they are nutrient dense sweeteners as opposed to dextrose and due to the fiber in bananas they don't spike... (more)
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nixtamalization -Increases mineral content -removes hull -removes mycotoxins -breaks down protein into more bioavailable form Assuming it's organic and non-gmo, do you think this could be considered a safe starch?... (more)
I eat nixtamalized corn as a "safe starch," more than white rice, but not more than potatoes. I'm gluten intolerant and have some problems with a few other gluten-free grains, but corn has never been a problem for me. I live in Texas, and eating... (more)
Been paleo for a few months now, but recently i had some corn at a family dinner and it's like i fell in love with it all over again. Corn is one of those neolithic foods that i actually miss, along with sweet peas and white rice. What's so bad... (more)
I believe I am actually allergic to corn in addition to it not being paleo. Are there any good corn free makeup or other hygiene products? Edit: Are there any specific brands of cosmetics that you all like? Corn can listed by many other names... (more)
Hello, I've been eating a paleolithic diet since about Thanksgiving of last year. I've lost roughly 25 lbs and for the first few months there were no issues. In late January I asked a question here because I thought I was having some digestive... (more)
According to Mr. Cronometer.com , ounce per ounce, corn chips have less omega 6 than peanut butter or almond butter. After 3 months of Paleo, and reading paleohacks.com each day, I still don't understand why nuts seem to enjoy a magical,... (more)
I'm curious, which of the industrial seed oils is considered the worst for a person and which might cause the worst or most common negative reactions in a person? I've seen canola oil discussed in great lengths but never a true comparison of the... (more)
Anecdotal and personal experience tells me that people with gluten intolerances (or any autoimmune diseases) should also avoid soy and corn due to possible cross-reactivity, leading to increased intestinal permeability. I haven't been able to... (more)
Here's one for maize/corn: Plant Foods for Human Nutrition DOI: 10.1007/s11130-012-0274-4 Maize Prolamins Resistant to Peptic-tryptic Digestion Maintain Immune-recognition by IgA from Some Celiac Disease Patients Francisco Cabrera-Ch??vez,... (more)
I decided to try the Paleo diet due to a wheat and corn allergy I've ignored for years. After only three days on Paleo, my stomach and digestive issues/pain were 100% GONE. Unfortunately, I've been really sick lately (flu, then Strep, then... (more)
My 12 year old son and I were discussing Paleo and he asked why corn was a no no because as he put it "you dont digest corn anyway"? Which raises my question, if we dont indeed digest most of corn is it really that bad? I REALLY miss my chips... (more)
If corn wasn't digested there would be a huge market in the diet industry for "The Corn Diet", in which you stuff yourself with nothing but "zero-calorie" corn all day long and lose amazing amounts of weight...
I'm not familiar with the autoimmune protocol, but for any other Paleo/ancestral/related(I include whole food LC in that), it should be inconsequential. I've yet to see any evidence that ANY starch is detrimental -- it's the proteins that go with... (more)
I have some corn flour that has been treated with lime water. This is supposed to break down the kernel and help increase the bioavailability of many of the vitamins, especially B3. If I were to take this flour (also called masa harina) and soak... (more)
I'll be honest... personally it does worse things to my gut that gluten. So I avoid it, no matter how traditionally prepared. Then again, I do OK on WAPF style soaked beans which I know messes other people up. Try it and see.
So, each year I plant a garden and now everything is starting to ripen...including my Golden Bantam corn. I know corn is not really considered paleo but why? Should I peddle my corn to the neighbors or can I enjoy it myself?
So I was thinking the other day about the venison we harvest during our deer seasons here in SE Minnesota. Most of a deer's diet around here is corn out of the fields, so would it no longer be considered grass fed? Sure they graze in the fields,... (more)
