Kathryn disagrees with the score for Vic's Corn Popper Gourmet Lite White Half Salt Popcorn (5 oz).
Kathryn feels that the score should be A- (85-92).
The reason is: You actually scored it so low because corn is an allergen for some people?
Product URL: www.foodfacts.com/NutritionFacts/Popcorn...t-Popcorn-5-oz/20853

First, let me assure you that containing an allergen does not in any way impact a product’s score. We use the allergen icons to alert people to an allergen’s presence, but we don’t take off points for containing corn.
This product receives a B because it is a generally healthy popcorn option, but it also doesn’t have much in the way of nutritional value (i.e., no vitamins, low protein and fiber, etc.) For a snack food, a B is a very good grade and certainly something to have in moderation as a great alternative to chips or other high fat foods.

As always, thanks for contacting us!
