Just in time for the Holiday season of goodie baking! My son has a food allergy to High Fructose Corn Syrup. We try to eliminate it from our diets entirely, because it's just not good for us. In the process of researching his allergy, I started wondering whether he actually had an allergy to corn, so we limit all corn products, as well.
