I'm sure too much of it isn't a good thing but I dont think it will constipate you. It is refined and broken down in the process that it would dilute with your stomach acids. Usually constipation is because of not enough fruits and vegetables. Too much cheese and peanut butter are sometimes the culprits, too. If you eat a balanced diet, a little of everything, then you should not have any problems. Keep track of what you eat for a week and see where the overages or absences are. Go to the library to get a book about balancing meals. Talk to your doctor and bring the food log. P.S. some vitamins can clog you, too.

Looking for the blue and white box of cornstarch?

Yes, I have been eating cornstarch for sometime now. I am worried about what it is doing to my body. I started eating cornstarch by the box with my third and forth child. My husband caught me liking the baby powder and introduced me to the cornstarch instead. He told me that it was healthier to consume and that it was actually food. Recently I went to the doctor and I was told that my iron was low so I am now taking iron pills for supplement and I haven't eaten cornstarch in about 5 to 6 months. However, I am still concerned about the negative effects, if any, from eating so much of the cornstarch and what can I do to get it out of my system.
