How Corn is Used in Some of these Products

 Beer manufacturing is a process of treating malt to convert and extract the barley starch to fermentable sugars using the amyloytic enzymes present in malt followed by yeast fermentation. However, demand for lighter, less filling beer, especially in the U.S., has permitted use of more refined carbohydrate sources of two types:
a) dry adjuncts, primarily dry milled corn grits, broken rice, refined corn starch, and more recently, dextrose.
b) liquid adjuncts, namely corn syrups

Mixes Cake mixes use a pregelatinized corn starch that will form a paste in cold or warm water. In baked goods that use yeast for rising, dextrose is used as a yeast nutrient. 

Corn syrup is used in hard candies to provide a body giving them chewiness and a desirable mouthfeel without excessive sweetness. Candies that are coated use a pyrodextrin corn starch for the coating. 

Carbonated Beverages
 Coke High fructose corn syrup (HFCS) blended with sucrose in a 50/50 blend is sweeter than the same concentration of sucrose. The use of HFCS in carbonated beverages is common throughout Canada and the U.S. 

Corn starch, corn flour or dextrose may be found in cookies. 

Corn Flakes 
The flaking grits are cooked to a rubbery consistency with syrup, malt, salt and flavouring added. After tempering, the cooked grits are flattened between large steel rolls, followed by toasting in travelling ovens to a golden brown colour. 

Corn Starch 
Corn starch is derived from the wet milling process and is an important manufactured product. Some uses depend on the properties in the dry state, but most applications relate to its properties as a cooked, hydrated paste. 

Corn Meal 
Corn meal is a popular dry corn product because of its long shelf life. It is used to produce an assortment of chemically leavened bread and fried products like corn bread and muffins. 

Cosmetics Corncobs, when finely ground, are relatively dust free and very absorbent. This absorbency makes corncobs useful carriers for pesticides, fertilizers, vitamins, hand soaps, cosmetics and animal litters. 
Granola Dips/Granola Bars Some types of Granola Dips use dextrose as a sweetener. 

Gypsum Wallboard Starch-containing corn flour is gelatinized during the manufacturing process; It functions by controlling the rate of water loss during drying of the board. Soluble carbohydrates migrate to the surface and control the rate of crystallization of the gypsum, providing a strong bond between the gypsum and the liner. 

Instant Coffee & Tea Maltodextrins are derived from the wet milling process. They are a dextrose equivalent product of complete solubility but little or no sweetness. Maltodextrins are sprayed on instant tea and coffee to keep the granules free flowing. This solution is also used in instant soup mixes or other packages where the contents 
must be be kept free flowing. 

Mars Bar & Twix Bar Many candy bars contain corn syrup. 

Paint and Varnish Tetrahydrofurfuryl alcohol is a resin developed from processing corncobs. These resins are useful in the paint and varnish industry as solvents for dyes, resins, and lacquers. 

Paper Products 
Paper products use raw starch in the manufacturing process. The properties of high paste viscosity and strong gels are useful in specially coated papers. Pyrodextrins are also used for paper manufacturing for the adhesive property on remoistenable gums for postage stamps and packaging tape. 

Pharmaceuticals Aspirin - an oxidized starch paste, which dries to a clear, adherent, continuous film, is spread in a thin layer over the aspirin.Intravenous - some IVs consist of dextrose and water solutions.
Antibiotics - preferred carbohydrate sources are corn syrup, dextrose, corn starch, lactose and sucrose. Cornsteep liquor was early found to provide a ready source of soluble nitrogenous nutrients plus unknown growth factors that stimulate antibiotic production.
Over 85 different types of antibiotics are produced using corn.

Snack Foods - Corn Chips & Doritos These snack foods are generally made from whole corn (cornmeal). The high starch content of cornmeal and flour is important in giving a high puff in preparation of extruded (pressed) snack products in which a delicate corn flavour is desired. 

Spark Plugs Starch is used in the production of the porcelain part of spark plugs. 

Tire, Rubber In the production of tires, corn starch is sprinkled on the molds before pouring the rubber, to prevent the rubber from sticking to the molds. 

Toothpaste Sorbitol, which is produced from the corn sugar dextrose, is used in toothpaste as a low-calorie, water-soluble, bulking agent. 

The major carbohydrate in the production of whiskey is corn.A typical Canadian whiskey is made from a mixture of about 90% corn, 5% rye, and 5% barley malt. 


Some of the different brands of yogurt use corn syrup as a sweetener. 

Roast Beef

About 60 per cent of the grain corn crop grown in Ontario is used for feeding livestock. The remainder of the crop is used for industrial and commercial applications. Some of the corn may be exported.

Corn starch can be used in making gravy as a thickening agent.

Cream-Style Corn
The cream sauce is thickened with corn starch, a product of grain corn. The niblets are sweet corn. Sweet corn accounts for about five per cent of total corn production in Ontario.

Homemade White Bread
This recipe calls for margarine, which could be a corn oil margarine, used as an ingredient in the bread and for greasing the baking pans.

Homemade French Dressing
May contain corn oil as one of its ingredients.

Deluxe Pecan Pie
Contains both corn syrup and corn oil. If the pastry is a ready made, cholesterol-free, pie shell bought at the grocery store, it may contain dextrose, a sweetener made from grain corn.

Ice Cream
May contain sweeteners made from grain corn, such as glucose or fructose-glucose. 

Instant Coffee or Instant Tea
Maltodextrins (a dextrose-equivalent product of complete solubility, but little or no sweetness) is sprayed on ground coffee and instant tea to protect the contents from moisture and keep it free flowing. Maltodextrin is also used in instant soup mixes and other packages where the contents must be kept free flowing.


baking powder
Not to be confused with baking soda (bicarbonate of soda, sodium bicarbonate), baking powder is a mixture of chemical leavening agents with starch. The starch in every common baking powder is corn starch.
Caramel is cooked sugar, often used for flavoring or coloring. You'll find it in soft drinks, especially colas, and in dark breads. You can make caramel from cane or beet sugar, but commercial food producers often use corn syrup. Jolt Cola was an exception, but no longer: they've switched from cane sugar to corn syrup.
confectioner's sugar
Confectioner's sugar is ordinary table sugar, reduced to a fine powder. To keep the powder from caking, manufacturers commonly add corn starch to it. Domino Sugar tells me their 10x confectioner's sugar is about 2% cornstarch. A contributor gave 4% as a typical fraction, but another correspondent claims it can run as high as 30%. Trader Joe's Organic Powdered Sugar is made with tapioca starch instead. It's not available year-round, unfortunately, but only through the winter holiday season.
Any food or ingredient with corn in its name is certain to be a problem, including whole corn, corn flour, cornstarch, corn gluten, corn syrup, corn meal, corn oil, and popcorn. The only exception that I know of is corned beef, so-called because it's cured with coarse salt that resembles kernels of corn. But processed meats often contain dextrose, food starch, or corn syrup, so don't assume that corned beef is corn-free. In cooking, you can usually substitute arrowroot powder for cornstarch.
dextrin, maltodextrin
Dextrin and maltodextrin are thickening agents, often made from corn starch. You'll find them in sauces, dressings, and ice cream.
dextrose (glucose), fructose
Dextrose (also known as glucose or "corn sugar") and fructose ("fruit sugar") are simple sugars that are often made from corn. Dextrose is used in a variety of foods, including cookies, ice cream and sports drinks such asGatorade. It also shows up in prepared foods that are supposed to come out crispy, such as french fries, fish sticks, and potato puffs. It's common in intravenous solutions, which could be quite dangerous. Fructose is usually seen in the form of high fructose corn syrup, but makes an occasional appearance on its own.
Excipients are substances used to bind the contents of a pill or tablet. My dictionary mentions honey, syrup, and gum arabic, but corn starch is also a possibility.
golden syrup
Golden syrup is a sugar syrup, sometimes a mixture of molasses and corn syrup, also known as treacle. I've found it in cookies and candy, mostly in Canada. Tate & Lyle's Golden Syrup is purely from cane sugar, however.
glucona delta lactone
Glucona delta lactone ("GDL") is a recently-appearing additive in cured meats. Its appearance in this list is provisional, as all I really know of its origin is that it's made by Archer Daniels Midland, a world-wide giant in the manufacture of corn products.
invert sugar or invert syrup
Invert syrup is enzymatically treated bulk corn sugars, used because it's not so thick as corn syrup. I've noticed it in cookies, but don't know where else it might turn up.
malt, malt syrup, malt extract
Malt is germinated grain, often barley. But it can be any grain: corn and rice are also common. They're much cheaper than barley, and so unspecified malt is probably not barley. Malt appears in alcoholic beverages, soft drinks, chocolate, and breakfast cereals, among other places.
mono- and di-glycerides
Mono- and di-glycerides are often found in sauces, dressings, and ice cream, where they modify (improve?) the texture of the finished product. Glycerides are made from both animal and vegetable fats or oils, corn included. Vegetable mono- and di-glycerides are sometimes labelled as such, but I've never seen animal glycerides so marked.
monosodium glutamate or MSG
MSG is a "flavor enhancer" used in many packaged foods, particularly prepared meals and instant soups. Chinese food is a major source of added MSG: reactions to it are sometimes called "Chinese restaurant syndrome". Alert Reader Beverly noticed that the MSG in Accent flavor enhancer is described on the container as "drawn from corn". I'm told that this is commonly true of MSG in US-made foods, but not in imported oriental products. TheMSG Myth site also describes corn as a source of MSG.
Sorbitol is a sweet substance (but not a sugar) that occurs naturally in a number of fruits and berries. It's produced commercially by the breakdown of dextrose. It's used as a sugar substitute for diabetics, in the manufacture of vitamin C, and in some candies. Readers tell me it also appears in oral hygiene products such as toothpaste and mouthwash.
starch, food starch, modified food starch
Added starch in foods can come from any of several sources, but corn seems to be the most common. Unless the type of starch is specified, it's likely that corn starch is present.
Sucrose usually means cane sugar, but Craig Gelfand has spotted an English candy whose ingredients included "sucrose (from corn)".
Treacle is a mixture of molasses and corn syrup, also known as golden syrup.
vanilla extract
The major brands of real vanilla extract all have corn syrup in them. (I haven't checked imitation vanilla flavorings.) There are vanilla extracts without corn syrup; a local brand is Scotts of Acton, MA.
Unless you know exactly what the vegetables are, you should be suspicious of any ingredient with vegetable in the name, including vegetable oil, vegetable broth, vegetable protein, vegetable shortening, hydrolyzed vegetable protein, and vegetable mono- and di-glycerides.
xanthan gum
Xanthan gum is a common thickener, the fermentation product of the bacterium Xanthomonas Campestris. X. Campestris can be grown in various media, including bulk corn sugars. Some brands of Xanthan gum claim to be corn-free; I don't know what growth medium they use. Because Xanthan gum is very cheap, its applications are still growing. You'll often find it in salad dressings, mayonnaise, and fast-food "milk shakes". I've also seen it in cream cheese and I'm told it's in Egg Beaters egg substitute.
My dictionary tells me that zein is "a soft, yellow powder obtained from corn, used chiefly in the manufacture of textile fibers, plastics, and paper coatings" or "a man - made fiber produced from this protein". A helpful netizen tells me that zein is the usual encapsulant for time-release medications.
alcohol and vinegar
Generic alcohol and distilled white vinegar are made from a variety of grains, including corn, but I've never noticed any reaction to them on my part. Apparently distillation removes enough of the corn proteins or denatures them past recognition. Alcoholic beverages are probably quite a different story, but I don't drink.
ascorbic acid (vitamin C)
Supplemental ascorbic acid, also known as vitamin C, rarely comes from the sources where you'd find vitamin C naturally. Instead, it's synthesized from corn.
Aspartame is the generic name for Nutrasweet brand sweetener. I've heard that corn is used in the production of aspartame, but I don't have an authoritative source for this claim. Aspartame is made from two amino acids (aspartic acid and phenylalanine) and methanol. Amino acids are a major corn product, according to the Corn Refiners Association list of corn products, but it doesn't say which ones. Methanol can be made from corn but rarely is in practice. I've never experimented to see if I react to foods containing Nutrasweet.
If you use packaged Nutrasweet (as opposed to eating prepared foods containing it), be aware that it's packaged with dextrose. This is also true of saccharin. You should also be aware that aspartame's safety is a controversial topic. See, for example, The Aspartame Controversy, some Articles on Nutrasweet(tm) from Usenet, or the Aspartame Consumer Safety Network.
bleached flour
According to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration's rules, it's possible for bleached flour to contain cornstarch without any obvious mention on the label. The reason is that cornstarch is allowed as a diluent for some bleaching agents. Since the flour is labelled as bleached, you're supposed to understand that it could contain any of many bleaching agents and their inactive ingredients. I've never noticed any reaction from bleached flour, but I don't eat much of it.
citric acid
Citric acid is most commonly used to provide tartness in some candies and drinks. It can be made from corn, although it isn't necessarily. I'm not aware of any reaction to it, although I avoid most of the products containing it because they also contain corn syrup.
lactic acid
Lactic acid is another tartness agent and preservative, often used in the manufacture of cheese. It's derived from lactose ("milk sugar"), which ADM, at least, makes from corn.
Lecithin is an emulsifier which occurs naturally in eggs, corn, and other foods. I'm told that all the lecithin used in commercial food production is derived from soybeans and should be free from corn.
table salt
Ordinary iodized table salt contains dextrose. According to a Consumer Affairs representative at Morton International, dextrose is added to stabilize the iodine compound in the salt. Without it, the iodide decomposes and the iodine evaporates. Sea salt contains iodine naturally, but loses most of it in processing. Iodine is an essential nutrient, so you should think carefully about where your dietary iodine will come from if you stop using iodized salt. I'm not aware of reacting to the dextrose in table salt, but I use very little in cooking and none at the table. I have heard from people who claim to be affected by the dextrose in table salt.

Ascorbic acid
The Vitamin C used to fortify foods is almost always non-naturally occurring. Instead, it is synthesized from corn.
Amino Acids
We have all seen this vague ingredient. It makes me think of biology class, but it makes the Corn Refiner’s Association think of money!
Calcium lactate
A preservative used in baking powder, cheeses, chewing gum, antacids, cut fruit.
Calcium stearoyl
Emulsifier used in manufactured bread products such as bread loaves and tortillas
Citric acid
Preservative used in soft drinks and candies for the sour taste.
Crystalline fructose
A type of high fructose corn derivative found in artificially sweetened products.
Dextrin or Dextrose
A basic sugar with food preservation properties, dextrose is found in jams, candy and other sweetened foods. Additionally, it is the basis for fermentation of many antibiotics such as penicillin.
Ethyl maltol
This chemical compound smells of caramel and is thus used as an artificial flavor and fragrance that is used in food and beauty products, which means it is also absorbed into your body through your skin as perfume, lotion and soap.
Fumaric or Lactic acid
A preservative in sweets that sometimes offers a tart flavor, but can also be tasteless.
Commercially produced glucose is made from cornstarch, making it a processed processed food. (Processed²?)
Hydrolyzed vegetable protein (HVP)
HVP is a fermented corn biproduct that contains the more maligned acronymed ingredient, MSG (monosodium glutamate – a type of HVP). MSG has been implicated in migraines, among other maladies. HVP is used as a “flavor enhancer,” possibly in other flavored-down, corned-up processed items. (Processed³?)
Malt, Maltodextrin, Maltose or Maltol
The Malt-series food additives are absorbed by the human body at a rate parallel to glucose, which is to say rapidly. This rapid absorption leads to a rise and fall of glucose levels, which leads to increased hunger, which leads to eating more corn products. Yay!
A sweetener used for diabetic-friendly sweets, mannitol is also a common ingredient in chewing gum and breath mints (it provides that “cool” feeling). In higher doses, mannitol is used in children’s laxatives. (Needed in the first place, of course, because of a non-diversified diet of corn-based, refined carbohydrates.)
If your favorite cereal proclaims “Now With More Fiber!” on the box, it is probably thanks to this synthetic, soluble-fiber compound.
An emulsifier in foods, pharmaceuticals and beauty products.
Potassium gluconate
Often added as an antioxidant, this compound is commonly used as a sodium supplement.
Propylene glycol monostearate
An emulsifier that is used in food, pharmaceuticals and beauty products. Oh, and also in industrial solvents, anti-freeze coolants, plasticizers and pretty much any other carcinogen you can think of.
A synthetic Vitamin E, it is often sold as a supplement on its own although testing has demonstrated that humans do not absorb it as efficiently as naturally derived Vitamin E.
Xanthan gum
A very common thickening agent, xanthan gum is found in pretty much anything that requires emulsification such as salad dressing, ice cream, pasta sauce and bottled smoothies.
