Pop-secret Microwave Popcorn

B) Aloha,

I just bought some pop-secret microwave homestyle popcorn made w/real butter and salted. I think pop-secret is ok? it's made by General mills I didn't see anything odd in the ingredients except natural and artificial flavors.

Does anyone know? Thanks, Suzanne

General Mills will not hide anything so if it didn't say wheat,rye,barley,oats on the label it's safe.

Supposedly somewhere out there there is one mega butter flavor of one popcorn that isn't gluten-free, but other than that all the popcorns I've ever checked or heard about have been gluten-free. Pop Secret is gluten-free.

I do not believe the Smart Balance Microwave popsorn is gluten-free. THey would not confirm, and when I ate it anyway I got pretty sick. According to the Delphi lists, All ORville except the Caramel pour-on or the BBQ kind is gluten-free. All ACT II is gluten-free. All JIffy POp and JOlly Time is gluten-free.

You have all been such a blessing to us through our daughter's experience with Celiacs. It is a honor to be able to give back even if just a tiny bit.

Well long story short, we just had our first gluten attack in about a year and it was 100% from Pop Secret Homestyle Popcorn.

Popped in a movie and popped some corn and whammo.....within 30 mins, the burping and stomach pain began.

Good news is that it must be a tiny tiny amount (we guess, please be gentle, we are still learning) as she only had the reaction for about 20 mins and she is now fine.

We thought a shot of gluten after a year without would be much worse than it was.

Same exact attack as she was getting (style wise, burping, massive gas and style of pain) when we didn't know it was Celiacs and just kept giving her cheeseburger happy meals. Ouch!! Insert bad parent guilt here. :(

Anyway, even if many have not had a reaction, please be aware we had one on Pop Secret Homestyle microwave tonight.

Here's hoping for a cure someday.

    • healthy bread recipe?
      Ok thank you for the input! I am happy to hear what you think about her biopsy. Her GI is actually getting a second opinion from the celiac specialist. Our appointment is in a week. I have always thought she had celiac too. I asked them to do a biopsy years ago and they did but it was normal. She has more neurological symptoms than GI. She has headache and POTS. But she was reacting to all kinds of foods all of the sudden a few months ago. The low histamine diet really helped and she tolerates more foods now. I make almost everything from scratch, there is no gluten anywhere in the house and I don't use gums because she and I react to them. Breakfast is the hardest. Eggs are high histamine, she can't have oats, can't have fermented foods (yogurt), Breakfast is a nightmare. Many fruits and veggies are high histamine. She eats the ones she can tolerate. That's why I was asking about breads. What do you eat for breakfast? Are flax seeds safe or are they like oats? I can't find any flax seeds that say certified gluten free.
    • Diagnosis and Test Results
      I have been struggling with  symptoms for over a year and had lots of other testing done by my GI.  She did the celiac disease blood test a few weeks ago.  It came back positive for the two genetic markers but my antibodies were negative.  I received the results by phone from the (stupid) nurse who only relayed to me that "your tests showed that you are positive for Celiacs Disease.  you need to go on a gluten free diet and follow up in a few months".  I was so surprised by what she said it didn't even occur to me to call the doctor directly so I took it upon myself to research the disease and going on a strict  gluten free diet.  The first two weeks were horrible!  EVERYTHING I ate gave me diarrhea.  After two weeks, I started to feel better but anytime I inadvertently ate gluten by accident or was cross contaminated, I had horrible diarrhea again.  I spoke with my GI doctor today (I work at the hospital where she works) and she explained the blood results better to me.  (I still haven't expressed my anger about the nurse to her yet...but I will!) It doesn't make sense to me that I have the gene, have been experiencing IMO full blown symptoms (significant weight loss, malnourished, diarrhea, migraines, increased depression/anxiety, etc) but my antibody test was negative.  Could it be lab error?  I asked about an endoscopy and she said we could do it but it still may not confirm the disease.  I've also researched IBS and I don't seem to match up with those symptoms. Part of me wants to know if I have a gluten intolerance or the actual disease.  Either way I'll continue to follow the gluten-free diet but I think it's important to know if I have an autoimmune disease correct?  Or does it? Just looking for some guidance...
    • healthy bread recipe?
      Absolutely, absolutely, absolutely!!!!!!! Your doctor seems to think all her villi have to be completely wiped out for her to be celiac. Like cyclinglady says.... get the records & get a second opinion. BTW, I happen to agree with all the rest she said too but I just wanted to emphasize the second opinion part.  
    • Nothing left to eat
      I usually have sautéed yellow peppers, kale (or spinach) mushrooms as a base.  Then throw in some leftovers like baked sweet potato, or chicken chunks, add an egg and call it a breakfast!
    • glutened by lays potato chips?
      Lay's regular chips are gluten free.  You might have reacted to the super greasy chips or one of the other ingredients in them.

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      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.
