Corn in Ener-G egg replacer?

Ener-G Egg Replacer 16 oz (454 g)
     I just read in my new Living Without magazine that Ener-G egg replacer contains corn.   This was news to me.  I am not sure which ingredient contains the corn, maybe the citric acid.  Lots of citric acid is derived from corn.
    They suggested instead of using the egg replacer in breads and bagels where the egg replacer is a leaving agent, that you can substitute 1 to 2 teaspoons of baking powder.   Worthy of note if you are allergic to corn.

If you want to make your own baking powder:  mix 1 part baking soda to 2 parts cream of tartar and 1 part potato starch or tapioca starch (instead of the usual cornstarch).
