Re: popcorn and bloating

Yes -- popcorn is a carbohydrate that is converted to sugar during digestion because the corn surface area has greatly increased when poped and if your intestinal bacteria is out of balance like too much yeast/candida -- it thrives on the sugar/ glucose and produce gas.

It has happened to my wife!!
