    Default One reason not to eat cornbread!

    First let me say I am very annoyed with this company. It is Allergy Free
    Foods. I first learned of this company when I was looking for a dairy free
    cheese, which they used to make. It was beef based. Somehow they made it
    taste *just* like cheese. All different kinds. It even melted like cheese.
    The problem? It made me puke. Every time I ate it. So maybe too much fat
    for me. I don't know.

    They stopped selling the cheese but said they were going to reformulate it
    to make it taste better. I had hope! But this never happened.

    They also sold whole sheet cakes and cornbread. Angela loved these. But
    they stopped selling them on their website and began selling them for an
    over inflated price on one of the TV type home shopping channels. Still, a
    whole sheetcake cut into serving size pieces, put in containers and put in
    the freezer would last her a year.

    They also sold gravy mixes. I bought those and also some cornbread mix.
    Which leads me to the icky cornbread story.

    I had two mixes that I was saving. For what? I don't know. But I decided
    to make one today. They were old. I do know that. And long story short,
    there were weevils in it. Which I didn't realize until I had mixed it up.

    I threw it out and hesitantly opened the other one. No bugs. The weevils
    in the other mix were dead. The mix was in a thick plastic bag that
    appeared to be sealed from all sides. Not even a pin hole. How they got in
    there is beyond me. I checked all my other flour and such and didn't see
    any signs of weevils. I asked Angela if she would be willing to try it
    because I know how she is about stuff like that. She wanted it and she
    likes the end result. I would have been just as happy to do without it.

    Anyway... That was not what I wanted to see! I have seen weevils a few
    times in the past. The first time was in some paprika that belonged to my
    landlord. He told me after the fact that the spices were very old and had
    come from his cabin. These were the days when all spices still came in
    metal cans.

    The next time wasn't actually weevils, or maybe it was, but larvae on the
    flour aisle. I didn't buy anything in that store from that aisle.

    The next time was in a Jiffy cake mix that I had mail ordered. Again, just
    in one mix. Again dead.

    So... How do those things get in there?

    why on earth would a diabetic even consider eating most of these? oh wait, it's
    because julie can then complain that it raised her blood sugars to unacceptably
    high levels

    they are in there from the harvest of whatever grain is in the mix, its best
    to buy anything with grain and freeze for 72 hours to start with, they are
    in most items, but if they are frozen you never see them, Lee

    yes even rice gets frozen at my house, i figure what dh doesn't ssee won't
    make me hurl, but just about everything that is a grain has them, they are
    too small to see in most grains, so freeze fix and eat... actually we kept
    all of our flour and grains in the freezer only taking out what we might use
    in a week or so, besides keeping the bugs out, it kept the stuff fresher as
    we aren't big flour users anymore, Lee

    You've probably eaten a few and not noticed. They are harmless.
