From Kansas, USA:

I am allergic to corn products. Could you tell me what to use to replace confectioner's sugar in recipes?


Unfortunately, most sweeteners, including confectioner's sugar, contain derivatives of corn for in order to obtain sweetness. I checked with the manufacturers of (sucralose), and even it contains maltodextrin (an additive made from corn sources). I would advise that you omit confectioner's sugar from recipes due to the corn allergy.
