Is Popcorn Gluten-Free?
Well, yes and no.
Like many other foods, popcorn itself is gluten-free. After all, it’s just popped corn, and corn is gluten-free.
However, the stuff added to popcorn may not be gluten-free. You want to check the ingredients in the ‘butter flavoring’ used at popcorn stands or movie theaters.
You may want to smuggle your own popcorn in to the theater – just to be safe…
Don’t worry, you have several options that are trusted gluten-free.
Cracker Jack Original Caramel Coated Popcorn & Peanutes
Orville Redenbacher’s Gourmet Naturals Microwave Popcorn
Garrett Popcorn Shops Chicago Mix!
…and many more! These days, many of the popcorn brands you see at the grocer are GF! Just look on the package for the GF label or check the ingredients to be sure.
