Whether you enjoy popcorn as a movie theatre treat or as an everyday snack, the cultivation of their seeds has many applications. Popcorn is an extravaganza in itself. The pleasantly nostalgic smell that fills the room the rampant popping as you wait for it to be ready to eat. Everything about it is a show and anticipation for good things to come. The popping is caused by the moisture inside the grain that heats up until the steam escapes, causing it to burst open, revealing its tender centre.
It is truly magnificent. It is one of the healthiest snacks on the market when no fat is added and minimal salt. Air popped popcorn contains as little as 30 calories per cup with less than a gram of fat. If you are looking to shed some weight or simply introduce your family to a healthier snack option; popcorn is the answer.
