The traditional cinema snack contains "surprisingly large" amounts of healthy antioxidant plant chemicals called polyphenols, scientists have found.

Tests showed that the compounds account for 2.5% of popcorn kernels by weight - higher levels than were seen in a range of other cereal products.

Polyphenols, also found in fruits, vegetables, chocolate, wine, coffee and tea, are known to protect the heart and reduce the risk of cancer.

US chemist Dr Joe Vinson, who made the discovery, said: "We really were surprised by the levels of polyphenols we found in popcorn. I guess its because it's not processed. You get all the wonderful ingredients of the corn undiluted and protected by the skin. In my opinion it's a good health food."

Dr Vinson's research supports the idea that polyphenols in whole grains, rather than their fibre content, is what makes them healthy.

His team at the University of Scanton in Pennsylvania analysed a range of whole grain breakfast cereals and snacks.

The researchers found the products contained similar levels of antioxidants per gram as fruits and vegetables.

Popcorn was one of the richest sources. In comparison, breakfast cereals had polyphenol levels ranging from 0.03% to 0.5% by weight.

The findings were presented at the American Chemical Society's annual meeting in Washington DC.


Haha! This surprised me this morning! Source here: Source

Yes, It's true that popcorn is good for you. Popcorn could help prevent cancer, heart disease and other diseases. I love popcorn but better to eat only salty not add sugar to it.

Michael Bay movies cause so much free radical damage that not even all the popcorn in the world would be effective. In such cases I would recommend a heavy dusting of ricin over all your snacks.

These "scientific research" may as well tell you it's good doing meth and sniffing cocaine. I mean, I can easily pay to get those articles published which is beneficial for my product or brand.
