Plain popcorn is corn. Corn does not contain the same type of

gluten as that which causes a reaction in those who have celiac

disease or are "gluten-intolerant."

A gluten is simply a grain protein - but the word is usually

used to mean the type of gluten found in wheat, barley, rye, spelt,

kamut, and triticale.
