Antioxidant Powerhouse: Popcorn is the Perfect Snack

NEWS FLASH! A recently released study suggests that popcorn is an antioxidant powerhouse. One serving of popcorn packs more antioxidants than a day’s worth of fruit and vegetables. The author of the study, Joe Vinson, a chemist at the University of Scranton in Pennsylvania says:

“Popcorn may be the perfect snack food.”

But you knew that, that’s why you’re here. In addition to all the antioxidants, it’s also a whole grain!  Interestingly, the part that has the most antioxidants is the hull (the part that gets stuck in teeth).

Experts recommend that popcorn is air-popped instead of oil popped. And yes, Pop Karma is air-popped because we always have your health in mind — our goal is go create a healthy, sustainably grown, delicious snack.

Thanks to Henry and Massimo for sending over the news!
