It is simple enough to try sweetening her foods with store-bought fructose instead of sucrose.

Some pine nuts are distributed and stored by squirrels and birds.

Brazil nuts need an animal to chew the pod open.

I'm not sure if cashews have a distribution relationship with monkeys.

A few of us avid corn avoiders have compiled a list. It is now posted at

Thanks for adding the link and posting the great list.

Today at the International Celiac Symposium during the question and answer period, one physician mentioned that there is some evidence that a protein found in corn is very similar to one found in wheat! She would not say anything more about this. I looked at my notes and I did now write down her name. I asked OZZ if she heard the same thing and she said "yes".

Maybe it is like oats. It is thought there is a subset of people with CD who cross react to oats.
