Does anyone know if there is any gluten in the butter flavored topping for movie theatre popcorn?

Not sure about it having gluten, but it has always made me throw up. I stick to the microwavable variety.

I doubt there's any gluten in the butter topping but I'd check the popcorn salt. The guy behind the counter had an allergy info sheet for butter at my theatre, but nothing on the salt. It's not table salt, and they put it on as it comes out of the popper. I would stay away from the flavoured salt you add on later.

I sent an email to my local theater asking if the "butter" or any other ingredients had any gluten, and to toss in the overall nutritional info while they were at it. They didn't answer the gluten question (which I think was mostly on oversight) but my eyes got so big when I saw the "nutritional" value that I swore off the stuff anyway. :o

Highly, highly unlikely, but of course there's no way to guarantee that for every theater in the world.

I don't know why it would make you throw up. SOmething in it your body does not like.

I kind of question the whole butter at the movie theatre because when they spoon it on it looks more like an oil than butter, at least the kind I use. I have just always wondered how much of it was actually butter?

"Drum roll please" - how about the prices!!!

This coming from a person who has worked in the industry for 17 yrs.

My guess would be gluten. The salt/oil/flavouring stuff that they pop the corn in has artificial flavours that one company could not confirm the contents of. Guten makes me throw up as I unfortunately found out not long ago.

Every time I've actually been able to check a movie theater popcorn, it's been gluten-free. . Flavacol (sp?), the best-selling topping in the U.S., is gluten-free. It's very, very, very unlikely gluten is causing the vomiting, especially if it's happened from popcorn at different theaters.

Popcorn is just plain hard on some people's stomachs. It's sharp and pointy! Add a bunch of fat and oils to that and if you have a sensitive stomach, BAM!

And at movies especially, we tend to overeat the popcorn.

The Showplace 14 by us doesn't have gluten-free popcorn. I spoke to the Manager. It was very disappointing. I love the stuff. Now I smuggle in gluten-free micro popcorn. But it's not the same. :(

Movie theater popcorn 'butter' is pretty disgusting... My stomach is always unsettled after having any.

    • Hello!  When I find myself up at odd hours, I put on this celiac disease Mozart for Meditation... https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B000VFQ58U/ref=mp_s_a_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1516086445&sr=8-1&pi=SX350_PI_PJPrime-Sash-Extra-Large-2017,TopLeft,0,0_AC_SX118_SY170_QL70&keywords=mozart+for+meditation+celiac disease And I get out my dot to dot book, like one of these for adults.... https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/s/ref=is_s_ss_i_0_5?k=dot+to+dot+books+for+adults&sprefix=dot+t&crid=2B42N4PRIT56H Sometimes I knit mindless objects such as hats, washcloths or socks.  Knitting has a soothing rhythm to it and is easy to learn... Or I read a book about knitting and life... https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/1603420622/ref=mp_s_a_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1516087016&sr=8-2&pi=AC_SX236_SY340_FMwebp_QL65&keywords=McPhee+knitting&dpPl=1&dpID=51fHYy2xXsL&ref=plSrch Or a knitting mystery.... https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B001LRLJUG/ref=mp_s_a_1_6?ie=UTF8&qid=1516087587&sr=8-6&pi=AC_SX236_SY340_FMwebp_QL65&keywords=knitting+mysteries&dpPl=1&dpID=51z43F8UuuL&ref=plSrch Knitting is really easy to learn.  I find it soothing to work with natural fibers, organic cotton for washcloths or luscious alpaca for socks...  But I find it inadvisable to shop online in the wee hours...  😸 I've got way too much yarn now...hee hee hee...  besides, the light from electronic devices keeps your brain awake longer.... Hope this helps.... Knitty Kitty  
    • My only symptom was slight nausea. Lasted 6 months before it started to only happen if I ate too much food in a sitting. I would eat simple, bland foods and eat 6 small meals instead of three big ones.
    • I've lost some of my sense of taste due most likely to zinc deficiency from not eating beef for a couple of years. Zinc supplement doesn't seem to help, but eating .5 to 1 lb of beef per day definitely does help. I noticed a positive change within days of eating beef. I don't know if your diet includes beef, but if it doesn't there's a reason for you.   Zinc and Geographic Tongue
    • I was in your same boat when I was diagnosed. Terribly fearful of cancer and all the damage I unknowingly had done. I don’t cheat, but I’m not as good as I need to be at restaurants (I only order off gluten-free menus but I don’t talk to managers like I should, etc) and I eat out once a week with never having symptoms. My main symptom is absolute, complete brain fog. I am truly not the person I used to be. I’ve always had anxiety, so that wasn’t any worse, but I hate to say this about myself but i got “dumb”. It was my first week in nursing school when I was diagnosed. What a great time, huh? I had to stay at school until midnight-2am 4 nights a week just to try to focus and control this brain fog. I used to be smart, quick witted, and very present in the moment. I know life changes, but my life is busy yet very peaceful and I struggle with this daily. I can’t comprehend medical concepts quickly like before and it’s very depressing. I also have a pretty good diet but have weighed 165 (I’m 5’4”) for three years with doing cardio, training for marathons,  etc..nothing gets this weight off (have had thyroid issues since age 7). Anyways. You are not alone. My doctor diagnosed me 5 years ago and told me to stay gluten free and I never saw him again! No follow-ups... I had no clue I had to! Anyways, I have an appointment upcoming as well.  Best of luck to you ❤️
