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!

Love Popcorn Indiana! They have it at Walmart too.

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!

The Chocolate Drizzle was insanely good but I can't find it any more.

    • Holy cow! You people are all angels! I have been suffering unbearably with these hot, itchy, and painful bumps on my scalp for a year now. Two doctors had no idea what it was, so I was sent to see a "dermatologist." To my utter shock, he told me I WAS DIRTY! HE TOLD ME TO WASH MY HAIR EVERY DAY with a shampoo called Nizoral, that it would take the itch away. He also prescribed a Vaseline based salve with a steroid in it. Guess what? It did nothing nor did the shampoo, and the more I washed my hair, the worse it gets. It's like torture, and I just can't stop scratching holes into my scalp. Then they scab over, then itch again. I was almost ready to shave my head, until I found this forum. I knew nothing about celiac disease, sensitivity to gluten... I knew nothing. Just so happened that my daughter found a paper talking about celiac during her visit to her GI yesterday. She brought it home for me, and demanded that I read it!  WHAM- a light come on, and I said to her... That IS what I have. I am going to my GP tomorrow to demand that I be tested for ciliac. I am rather terrified, as I am already a type 1 diabetic and have been on insulin for 52 years! I was blaming my diabetes the whole time. I have had a lower left leg amputation, and the last thing I need is to start getting this ungodly rash on my stump!!! Thank you everyone for all of the useful information you have provided in this blog. Maybe I'm not going to die after all! 😉
    • The University of Chicago recommends re-testing 3 to six months after going gluten free and then annually.  Most GIs wisely wait because although you can theoretically heal that fast, it takes TIME to master the gluten free diet.  It can take up to a year or longer for antibodies to come down.  As someone who has more than one autoimmune issue like myself (and only a DGP IgA that has ever been elevated), I think that impacts healing  and how quickly antibodies come down.   My recent endoscopy (5 years post diagnosis) revealed a healed small intestine, yet my DGP IgA was still at 80 (which was over 200 last April when I was somehow exposed to gluten).   Hang in there!  Wait six more months to get retested.  Look for other signs of healing (like anemia resolving, improve gut issues).  
    • Sounds great, one of my dreams is to open a grain free/gluten free food truck.......stone and mortar places would not do well here, but a mobile one able to cater....LOL dream I know, fundraiser has flopped and been running for a year. Hell I had the quotes up, the whole sale contracts setup, the business model and plan. I even tried to get loans, and business partners.....all flopped.
    • Just opened in Cincinnati, Oh: Ma and Pa's Gluten Free Cafe. Dedicated gluten-free restaurant. I had the pizza hoagie and onion rings last night. I forgot just how oily onion rings were. They sat in my stomach like concrete all night long but tasted great. Next time I'm getting the pizza or pulled pork with slaw and fries.  
    • Nope, had the flu and this has happened before when I ate the chili. JMG, I read the deadspin article. It's pretty funny. First, at least we're not bull testicles(Montana), and second, Skyline is the only one claiming to be gluten-free besides Hormel(sucks) and Amy's(sucks) that is Cincinnati style. There are many other local chili's but none are gluten-free. Gold Star is good but they say they're shredded cheese isn't even gluten-free. Like I said, Cincinnati style is the best. It's supposed to have roots from the Mediterranean area. Gold Star is ran by Syrian family, there is one or two others that are ran by Greeks. I kinda agree with the article when it comes to Skyline but I can walk in a store and buy it in a can. I started to thaw so meat yesterday to give it a go but am out of Cumin. No chili today
