Microwave Popcorn

18 posts in this topic

I really need some help this time. My husband would love nothing more than to have some popcorn tonight. I bought some Cousin Willie's Movie Theater Butter Microwave Popcorn. Anyone know if microwave popcorn is okay? The ingredients are as follows: Popcorn, partially hydrogenated soybean oil, salt, natural & aritifical flavors & beta carotene coloring. Thanks!

I've never heard of that brand of popcorn. Do you have the Delphi list? I found it to be very helpful. I printed the whole list and then stapled each section. I filed each section into one of those folding type file thingys. I labeled each section so its very convenient. If I want to look for popcorn I just pull out the "snack foods" and just pick something off the list. I checked the list for Cousin Willy's but its not on there so I don't know if its gluten-free or not.

Yes, there are brands that are gluten-free. Here are some:

Act II

Jolly Time

Orville Redenbacher All variteies gluten-free except the caramel pour-over popcorn & Ultimate Theatre Style w/ BBQ Flavour pouch

I'm sure there are more...I just got these from the list right now.

You know what is really good for popcorn and is not that hard to do?

There's a microwave popcorn popper by Presto. It is a plastic bowl with a conductive base. It was about $15 dollars and you have to buy these little paper things to go in the bottom to make the popcorn pop, but they are not expensive and you can re-use them so they last a long time. You use kernels of popcorn and put it in for 3 minutes and put your own butter and salt on it. It makes it so you can have as much butter that you want, but not too much. After I started using it I noticed that regular microwave popcorn feels like it has a film on it. And any ingredient that starts with "partially hydrogenated" is really bad for you.

Nothing beats air-popped popcorn! :-) Poppers are around $15 at Target.

We really like microwave popcorn. I would assume that since several of the major brands are gluten free that this brand is also but I guess I'll get some Act II & wait to hear from our brand.

I havn't seen a plain or just butter flavored popcorn that did contain gluten. I only do the microwave too. So easy and less clean up. I think it tastes BETTER than airpopped. Everyone has their own opinion.

Well, I prefer the taste of real butter to the powdery, slimy stuff.

I do it the super-old fashioned way ( I grew up with no electricity so have some weird habits).

I take a large pot and put in one-two tablespoons olive oil, which is heart healthy and gives the popcorn a wonderful nutty flavor, heat the oil, put popcorn in, then shake vigorously over flame until the popping stops. Then I put on butter and salt, sometimes shredded cheese or parmesan, and sometimes Furikake (there are two types that are gluten-free) and sometimes all of them!

Of course I consider popcorn a complete meal, so there you have it.

When I'm feeling lazy I just pop it in the microwave (always ORville) and then add stuff.

I used to put in little rice cakes (Arare), but they have soy sauce on them so I can't have them anymore. :(

Thats how we made it growing up too, I had forgotten that. Thanks for bringing back so fond memories. It must have been before I was 7 or 8 , so many years ago.....it was such a treat. Then we got an air popper, then the microwave came around. I feel old now.

Well, still no response from Cousing Willie's. I guess it is safe to assume that the answer would be that it is full of gluten. Who knows? Anyway, we are sticking with Act II. The Movie Style Butter popcorn is awesome & totally addictive.

I take Orville's micro popcorn to work on night shift. I eat a LOT of popcorn, even before my celiac disease dx, so was I ever glad my favourite snack was safe! I only make hot air popped at home, and put real butter on it, mmmmmmmmm. I have zero guilt about it because I just think of all the stuff I can't have!! I can't watch Survivor or a hockey game without my 'corn!

I never ate a lot of popcorn before my husband was diagnosed & it became one of his favorite snacks. Now I find myself taking a bag of it for lunch. I'm hooked.

People can probably mail it to you on here. But I figure its easy enough just to go straight to the source.

You'll need to register and make a log in. But then you can always grab it when needed and updated. Actually, I think you can just grab them as guest, don't know, already have all my login stuff. Just go to messages tab, and the first section of messages is gluten-free Product list.

My favourite way to have popcorn is by using a pot, olive oil and kernels. Nothing beats it....it is delicious!! I salt them when they're done.

    • How do you know what's causing what?
      Hi Kam, If you are going to continue the celiac testing with an endoscopy, you need to keep eating gluten until it's done. It can be hard for vegetarians to keep their vitamin D levels up.   This Vitamin D  Council link has some good info on ways to boost your levels. https://www.vitamindcouncil.org/about-vitamin-d/
    • Blood results - odd
      Your ferritin was very low!  My result was a 2 when I was diagnosed.    I hard a hard time breathing and the fatigue was awful due to low hemoglobin levels.  But after going gluten free and taking iron for a few months, I quickly recovered from iron-deficiency anemia.  I still have hemologobin levels that are slightly below range due to Thalassemia which is genetic and my body has adjusted for it.   My B12 and folate levels are  super high.  My B12 is over 2000!  Yeah, I googled and ruled out cancers, etc.  Looks like some of us do not process man-made B12 often included in supplements.  I opted for natural sources of B-12 and folate and my levels have come down a bit.   Let us know your results.  Read the Newbie 101 section under "Coping" within this forum for tips.   Be patient.  It can take months, to years to feel good.  But it will happen!    
    • How do you know what's causing what?
      Welcome to the forum!   Well.....in theory you should be able to heal within a few months (grow new villi, etc.).  The reality is that it takes so much longer -- like a year or two (I kid you not!)  Why?  celiac disease can damage more than just the gut.  Depending on what was damaged (nerves, bones, etc) can impact healing time.  The gluten-free diet has a very steep learning curve.  It's not just giving up gluten.  It's avoiding cross contamination.  Becoming an expert in reading labels.  Learning to avoid foods processed on shared lines in a facility.  Then there are intolerances that most celiacs develop.  The most common ones is lactose.  Why?  The villi tips release the enzymes to digest lactose.  No villi tips?  Then you can not digest lactose.  Often this is temporary, but if you are one of the many adults in this world, you might already be lactose intolerant or might become so as you age.   Other intolerances that members often report include corn or soy.   Some celiacs react to oats, even gluten free.  So avoid oats for six months.  So, try cutting out dairy for a few days and see how you feel.  Then add in those items that have the least lactose:  hard cheese, butter, yogurt and see how you feel.   Avoid eating out for six months until you have seen some improvement.   Read our Newbie 101 thread under coping for more ideas!  Hope you feel better soon.   
    • Recovery diet, nutrition, leaky gut?
      I am having my endoscopy on Tuesday. I want to begin to heal my gut asap. I spent this morning in the ER with stabbing pain in my right shoulder blade, pain to the left of my belly button and vomiting. It's referred pain from my small intestine. I couldn't move or breathe hardly it hurt so bad. I NEED to get everything together to heal my gut asap. I don't want to ever go through this again. What are your recommendations? I've been reading a bit on leaky gut - anyone have good experience/links Or would the autoimmune diet be better? Are they one in the same? I know I am also reacting to casein and possibly potatoes.

      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.
