Is Popcornopolis popcorn gluten free?

Are your products certified non-GMO?
All of the corn we pop is “non-GMO”. We stand behind this claim and require written documentation from our corn farmers. If you are interested in Popcornopolis products that are certified to be completely GMO free, please try our Nearly Naked and Kettle Corn flavors. Both are verified by the Non-GMO Project. Please note that we will be launching several new Non-GMO and USDA Certified Organic products in 2014 and beyond.
Is your popcorn kosher?
Yes! Popcornopolis Kettle Corn, Organic Kettle Corn, Nearly Naked and Organic Gourmet popcorns are now Certified Kosher by Orthodox Union. Orthodox Union is the world’s most recognized and trusted Kosher certification.
Why do you pop your corn using Coconut Oil?
For several reasons… First and foremost, we tried many oils when we were first developing our original Caramel Corn, and NONE tasted as good. But perhaps most exciting are the health benefits of Coconut Oil… Numerous studies have shown coconut oil’s ability to positively help regulate blood sugar, but it can also boost thyroid function, helping to increase metabolism, energy and endurance. It also aids in digestion and helps absorb fat-soluble vitamins. High in Medium-Chain Triglycerides (MCT), coconut oil helps lower blood cholesterol levels. For the full story, see Why Coconut Oil?
How long will your popcorn stay fresh?
Our popcorn is popped fresh daily, and packaged as soon as it cools! Popcornopolis guarantees freshness for 6-months in any of our sealed, unopened packages (cones, bags or tins). Between snacking, we suggest keeping the package tightly sealed to retain maximum freshness.
I have various food allergies, Can I still eat your popcorn?
Popcornopolis recipes are popped in Coconut Oil, which is a classified as a tree nut, and several of our recipes include Almonds or Pecans. At least one of our flavors includes peanut butter. So customers with nut allergies should be extremely cautious. Similarly, the Popcornopolis facility processes soy and milk products. Please read the allergen statement printed on our packaging for the most product-specific and up-to-date information.
