Saw this at Walgreen's.

Says gluten-free on the bag. No wheat in the facility.

Bought a bag of the Cinnamon Sugar. Not bad!

I thought that I might have gotten glutened from them. When I asked them...they said that they only test to 20ppm...which is still a level that i react to. When I questioned them further, they said that they only guarantee to 20ppm and wouldn't answer back on any more detailed info. Sad news for us who are very sensitive. I might test it again, but I react to all products that are 10ppm and up for contamination.

That is good to know, thank you. I had just bought a bag and was looking up the website info on their gluten free assurance quote but I don't think I'll be trying this. I can easily make my own kettle corn and would much rather do the work there than feel the pain now hehe.

I have no idea what ppm I show signs to but it's probably in your same area for the most part. Even a tooth pick in it's wrapper, if touched wrong or flavored will totally set me off. It's sad :(

I'm awfully sensitive to tiny amounts of cross contamination and I eat this popcorn often. They test to 20 ppm but that doesn't mean there is anywhere near that much in it, necessarily. Just my 2 cents :)

I have eaten it, too and I am a "trace CC --fast responder"...with no issues here.

Thought it was pretty tasty!!

In fact, I wrestled with hubs for the bag all night ... :)

Are you just making up your own phrases, or is there an actual, accepted description like this?

Whether there is an "actual, accepted description," or not, it is pretty clear what she means. She is sensitive to cross-contamination, and reacts in a short time.

Yes, Peter thanks, that's what I meant.

If there is trace CC in something, I would respond quickly with symptoms.

Just like Patti said she is --I am sensitive to cross contamination.

I thought it was self-explanatory :)

I never said she was unclear, I was just curious if someone had categorized gluten responses and had come up with some sort of table of the most common groupings or something.

Such a chart would be of interest to all of us, I expect. You are a scientist. I don't know how much spare time you have, but if you could investigate this, we would all benefit from the results.

From www.popcornindiana.com :

Is Popcorn, Indiana gluten free? Yes. Popcorn and other corn varieties are naturally free of gluten. Gluten is a protein typically found in barley, wheat, rye, their cross-breeds (triticale), and by-products such as flour and MSG. While none of our products contain any of these ingredients and popcorn is a gluten-free grain, we had a FDA-affiliated lab analyze our popcorn because we are very concerned about our customers. The test results found no traces of gluten using the AOAC/CODEX Certified R5 method at a 20 parts per million accuracy level.

So.. Out of concerns (the company's), they've found NO traces of gluten...none. They are only stating that the testing would "find" gluten with an accuracy of up to 20ppm. Pretty definitive, IMO.

It is my opinion that, to be safe, the company is merely ruling out any potential cross-pollination that could occur in the fields. The fact that they don't have to...well, that's even more in their favor. That's pretty darn responsible, IMO.

Coupled with the fact that NONE of their products contain gluten AND it is a dedicated facility? Oh and Non-GMO corn? I'd say their products are about as safe (from gluten) as you could hope to, possibly find.

If I was looking for a "commercial snack product"...I would RUN for the nearest bag.

I must confess...when I first came here, it took me a bit to figure out what DH, DD, DS, etc meant (sometimes I'm still not all that sure of some of the abbreviations, if I'm honest.

So, if someone decides to use TCCFR...well, I'd be here from the conception! Just think how confident I'd feel! :)

And, Irish would get the credit of course...

But, then we'd have to come up with some sort of system for the party-pooper-negative-nelly types... Wouldn't want anyone to feel slighted... ;)

Good point, Karen... I was just being selfish... :)

Why on earth would you want to do something to make someone unhappy? Life is difficult enough without deliberately handing out sadness.

Lots of responses to this. None of them disagree about the safety of this product. Nothing to see here folks, let's move on.

My family loves this popcorn. We have been eating for a long time. We buy the snack size bags at Sams Club in a case of 28 for something like 9$ or so. I love having the individual bags. The kids can grab one when we are running out the door to a friends or they have to go to a bday party or need a snack for something. It is super cheap at Sams Club. I have not seen it at Costco. They do not sell the big bags, at least not at our Sams Club. But the individual bags are very nice!

Enjoy!

      I am glad you are feeling so much better!  Your posting will encourage others.  Thank you!
    • Last posted 2013 - Improving health
      When I first started this journey, roughly 11 yrs ago with symptoms, I had no clue. Eventually, having no luck with doctors (hypochondriac or psychosomatic), I googled my symptoms over and over looking for something... ANYTHING... that would give me a clue. Among other issues, my insides would not move, I was turning gray, felt like death, and had a persistent cough. I can't remember who but someone had posted on the forum and I found some of my symptoms. Eureka, I immediately began a gluten-free diet to see if it made any difference. Of course that was a journey, not realizing what products contained gluten. Long story shorter – first I went gluten-free, symptoms began to reappear, then it was soy (first organic was okay, then not), symptoms reappeared, took out corn, symptoms reappeared, then it was all grains. So the last couple of years I have been grain-free plus no sulphates. Actually, truth be told, my Celiac pharmacist gave me the recipe for health. I asked her if she liked a certain product. She answered, “I don't know, I have never tried it.” I asked her what she did use. She replied, “Nothing out of a box, a bag, or a bottle.” And that has pretty much been my life for the last couple of years. There is the odd product I try but it always has an after effect and I have to way the consequences against the enjoyment of it. I am one of those who react to 1 crumb in the butter, flour dust in the air, sulphates in anything, sometimes things that don't even seem like they would be a problem, like avocados and blueberries when I am contaminated. January 2016 I began this recitation. It is now May 5th, 2016 - Here I am 4 months later and I feel like screaming to anyone who will listen, “Things are improving!! My gut is healing!!” So what happened?? Someone suggested digestive enzymes. My insides were so compromised that I couldn't eat much besides fruit, veggies, and meat; all plain, all without being touched by people other than me. I could barely stand salt at times when I was compromised. Haven't been to a restaurant in years since I am not in a city that would have one to cater or understand this much of a problem. I started digestive enzymes but I read the label wrong and started with 5 first thing in the morning. Whatever... I began to notice improvements in what I could eat. Not anything different but just that I could eat without feeling ill or having my gut shut down. I stayed on those for a month and a half.. then I picked up a parasite from someone living in a very unclean apartment and visiting there and helping to clean. Well, that was a huge battle. I had to eat to discourage parasites. But in the process my insides began to heal dramatically. I was eating blackberries, drinking garlic keefir (which I couldn't have done 5 mths ago and gave me the first clue my insides had improved substantially), drinking oil of oregano or peppermint oil drops in a glasses of water, eating cabbage and green roughage. Drinking water with apple cider vinegar in it and Aloe Vera juice. After a couple of weeks my insides were a whole different story. I had a feeling of wellness that I hadn't had for years! I FELT like trying to eat something different. So I decided to try Gluten-free Rice Chex. Haven't had them in years.... and I am so happy! I can eat them!! (Not to say they are healthy, cause they are processed crap) but I didn't get sick and that was the amazing part. So now I am beginning to try a few things that would have set me back previously, I have made my own crème brulee because I have always been able to eat eggs. But the sugar was causing problems, but now it's okay. The issue I have now is that I want to try things too fast so I am having to exercise restraint. So here is it – parasites are very common, everyone has them however whether they cause problems depends on your immune system. Does it not makes sense that they would cause leaky gut? An over abundance in the gut would destroy gut tissue and take nutrients from a person and possibly put holes in the gut leading to food reactions? Digestive enzymes help to destroy the protective coating around parasites. Foods that discourage them or kill them are blackberries, garlic, cabbage, oil of oregano, peppermint oil, aloe vera juice, Braggs apple cider vinegar and more (google to find). I found medication didn't do anything so I turned to all the other. So this is how it is today. I don't suggest it is the answer to anyone else's problems but when I found this site, hidden in the posts was the beginning of the answers for me.  I may still be gluten, soy, corn intolerant but I am feeling so good now and I just thought I would tell someone.  I just wanted to share. Thanks for reading.
    • Endoscopy in 9 days after being low-gluten for a year. What to eat?
      Not to mention my hips and knees are killing me and I have really bad calf pains and horrible bloating after just 3 days of glutening. I don't think I could live like this for a whole week.
    • Endoscopy in 9 days after being low-gluten for a year. What to eat?
      I saw my gi today and he said to not worry about eating gluten. I have abdominal pain in the small intestine area and referred pain in my back, indicating pretty bad damage. So I'll just go without the gluten and do the genetic testing if needed.
    • Vagus Nerve Attack
      Hello All: I came across this series of posts from as Google search on "Wheat Vagus Nerve". I find all of your replies very interesting and would like to add mine for those searching for information but with differing symptoms. I have struggled with the vagus nerve impact to breathing as Maria mentioned in the original post, but only an impact to breathing and nothing else.  But my symptoms were brought on not only by wheat, but also by other ingredients such as dark chocolate, probiotics, caprylic acid, mustard, fluoride in toothpaste/mouthwash just to name a few.  I found when I sat down my breathing would return to normal, but as soon I got up, the impact would return. The impact to breathing would come 4-6 hours after ingestion and last for about the same amount of time.  At times I could not even take ten steps without having to stop, not being able to breath even moderately.  The symptoms now are decreasing in severity but not in duration. My doctor checked my blood for celiac and results were negative. A number of chest x-rays to rule out COPD.  I am waiting on an appoint with an allergy specialist in a few weeks to see what they have to say.  Needless to say, it is difficult to maintain a healthy weight. Thanks for your posts, and I hope my contribution is of benefit to others also.

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
