Going corn free in America in very difficult. I won't lie to you. You probably
can't eat at any restaurant and really be sure of what you are getting. You can

can't have frosting.

Fast food is a complete disaster. There is probably no way to eat at any fast
food place without getting corn. Plain baked potato? Don't use the iodized salt,
the sour cream or the butter, they probably all have corn. Burgers? No way, the
bread has high fructose corn syrup. Soda, don't make me laugh. Salad? Sorry, no
dressing for you.
