Have you ever wondered whether movie theater popcorn is safe for Celiacs? Here in Nova Scotia, there is just one movie theater chain (Empire Theatres) so I e-mailed them and asked if their popcorn contains gluten.
Here is the answer I got:
“Even though, to the best of knowledge Glutens and wheat are not present, we have not analyzed for the actual presence of gluten or wheat. During the harvesting process, wheat may come into contact with the corn. ConAgra Policy, at this time, prevents us from making “Gluten Free” or “Wheat Free” claims while the FDA Guidance on this matter is still being reviewed.”
So, to be safe, take your own snacks to the theater!
