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...

Maybe you could come up with badges, or stars or sumpin', to see who can collect the most.

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!

    • Villous atrophy with negative tTG IgG/IgA, high Gliadin IgA!
      It looks like you have a few options that you need to consider pursuing: 1.  Get back to your doctor and tell him to figure out what's wrong with you.  Take a friend because it helps to have someone listen and take notes who is not the patient.  Get copies of all lab reports and doctor notes always and keep a file on yourself to share with future doctors or to monitor your progress.   2.  Ditch this GI and get a new one (SIBO is real per my celiac savvy GI).  Take a friend with you.   3.  You say you are lactose intolerant.  Experiment by going lactose free for six months -- not just a few days.  This will help to promote healing and help determine if milk (lactose or proteins) are causing villi damage and not gluten. 4.  Recognize that some celiacs test NEGATIVE to antibodies.  Per Dr. A. Fasano and Dr. Murrary, based on their clinincal experience and recent data just published, they estimate that 10 to 20 percent of celiac disease patients test negative to the serology screening test. That means consider yourself a celiac and stop your gluten intake for at least six months.  Normal vitamin and mineral levels do not rule out celiac disease.   5.  Recognize that you can multiple reasons for villi damage.  That's why a second consult with a celiac savvy GI is important.   Good luck!    
    • Continued Symptoms
      Try keeping a food and symptom diary.   She could have allergies or intolerances.  But, again, I am not a doctor!  I am healed from celiac disease, but I still react to certain foods and have allergies.  Those will probably never go away as I have been plagued with them all my life (as my siblings have too).  She could have a milk protein intolerance and not just lactose.  Eliminate all dairy too see if it helps.   Speech really normalizes by the age of 8.  I can not say if your public school will evaluate her.  My home-schooled friends are still monitored by the state and receive state funding.  So, I would assume they would receive all the same benefits.  Try calling.  
    • Weeks in and feeling no better
      Let me tell you that based on what people post on this forum, it takes MUCH longer to heal.  In theory,  it should just take a few week on a gluten diet to promote villi healing.  Your body is constantly regenerating new cells in your gut on a daily basis.    Why the delay?   First,  it takes a long time to really master the gluten free diet.  So, in the beginning, dietary mistakes are often made which can delay the healing time.  Second,  celiac disease is an autoimmune disorder triggered by gluten causing a "flare-up" which can be measured by the level of antibodies in your system.  Antibodies can take weeks, months or years to come down.   Third,  there's the type of damage done to your body to consider (e.g. bone damage, depleted iron levels).  Usually anything neuro takes much longer to heal. Has your doctor checked you for nutritional deficiencies?  If not, ask.  You might be really low on a vitamin or mineral.   You could be low on digestive enzymes (actually they can not be released in a damaged gut).  So even when eating gluten free foods, your body is not digesting and absorbing the necessary nutrients.  You could help the healing process by taking gluten free supplements and enzymes.   But it is best to see what you are actually deficient in.   Most of these deficiencies resolve with time. Finally, my parting words of wisdom (as passed on by many of our members), is patience.  I know.  Hard to be patient when you want to feel well, but it will happen.   Hang in there!  
    • Gluten and panic attacks
      Now if everyone out there who probably has a gluten problem adopted your attitude, they would be having a much better life.  After over 10 years gluten-free myself, who really cares about gluten pizza? I go months without gluten free pizza, which is very good by the way, and I am not an emotional wreck.  Imagine!  Glad you feel better and yes, it was the wheat!
    • Generic meds
      Your best bet is to contact the manufacturer (as Squirmingitch suggested).   My doctor has no time to worry about medication containing gluten.  My pharmacist admitted that she does not have the time to help me, but recommended that I take responsibility and always contact the manufacturer.  My pharmacist did help by insuring that my thyroid replacement medication (Armour) is ordered in a full bottle, sealed and direct from the manufacturer.  I have to give her credit for being honest with me.  I also see her running around non-stop, so I believe that she is super busy.   Why did your doctor switch your medication?  Can you go back to your old brand?  How is your thyroid?   This is a bit off topic, but I subscribe to the Bicycling magazine.  I found this article fascinating about the impacts of cycling, swimming or running on ADHD.   http://www.bicycling.com/culture/people/riding-my-ritalin-how-one-cyclist-gained-control-over-his-adhd I hope you figure it out!

      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.

      Hello! I am new to this Celiac website... Is there anyone out there with Celiac AND extensive food allergies? My allergies include shellfish, dairy, eggs, cantaloupe, kiwi, mango, nuts, oranges, red dye, and more I can't think of. I went to the allergist about a year ago to see why I wasn't feeling well, and once everything was eliminated, I still didn't feel well. We did more testing to find out I had celiac as well as allergies to cattle as well as rye grass (I live on a farm basically). This was back in January 2016. I recently had my endoscopy with the gastroenterologist a week ago. I have no idea what to do or what to eat... So fish and potatoes for me!
