We had been using earth balance for baking, soups and grilling sandwiches before we had to pull corn. Is there another product out there, or are we looking at coconut oil at this point?

If you're looking for something that is more of a margarine substitute (like for spreading on toast or pancakes), Spectrum Naturals Spread is a great alternative. It has xanthan gum, citric acid, and natural butter flavor (non-dairy) in it, all of which can sometimes be made from corn-derived ingredients, but I called and they assured me that in this product, corn-derived ingredients are not used. I have found it at Central Market and Whole Foods. http://www.foodservicedirect.com/pro...d-10-Ounce.htm
Their xanthan gum and citric acid are not corn derived or they have no corn proteins in them? There could be a big difference for corn intolerant people. If it's true, I'll go buy some.... Uh, never mind, the soy protein in there makes it a big no for us regardless of it. But I'd still call and find out for sure what they ARE derived from.
