The study reveals the health benefits of popcorn

The study reveals the health benefits of popcorn

On the question of whether popcorn is good for health, we can say that it depends on the oil used, any added spices and perhaps the corn kernel itself.

Corn (even in its fried form) is a whole grain, and whole grains are an important source of vitamins, minerals, fiber and antioxidants that fight major diseases.

Research suggests that eating whole grains is linked to a longer life, less inflammation, and a lower risk of heart disease, stroke, cancer, diabetes, and more. In the use of popcorn, the way they are prepared and what oil is used is important. The best oils are anti-inflammatory, heart-healthy monounsaturated fats (MUFA), especially avocado oil and extra virgin olive oil. Whereas, soybean and sunflower oil as well as cottonseed oil tend to be pro-inflammatory.

According to nutritionists, spices also play an important role in this aspect. In packaged popcorn, seasonings can be as simple as sea salt and black pepper. Or the ingredients may include common dairy ingredients, such as butter and cheese, while some popcorn is made with sugar or other sweeteners.

Popcorn can be a healthy snack, but the nutritional quality varies considerably. A serving size of popcorn is usually three to three and a half cups.
