Eating healthy just got a whole lot crunchier. A team of researchers from the University of Scranton in
Pennsylvania has found that popcorn contains more antioxidants than other fruits and vegetables.
Antioxidants are substances that many scientists believe help protect against cancer and heart disease.
According to Joe Vinson, PhD, who presented the findings at the annual meeting of the American
Chemical Society, “popcorn may be the perfect snack food.” Vinson is known for his pioneering research
on micronutrients in chocolate, nuts and other foods.
The study also extols popcorn as a whole grain. “It’s the only snack that is 100 percent
unprocessed whole grain,” says Vinson. “One serving of popcorn will provide more than 70% of
the daily intake of whole grain. The average person only gets about half a serving of whole grains
a day, and popcorn could fill that gap in a very pleasant way.”
