Health Benefits of Popcorn

1599Anthropologists have discovered that 5,000 years ago, the indigenous people of Mexico and Peru had popcorn as a part of their diet. Popcorn is relatively healthy; it is a good source of fiber, potassium, zinc, magnesium, copper and vitamins B3 and B6. These healthy aspects of popcorn help reduce the risk of strokes, type-2 diabetes and heart attacks.*

Popcorn can be a healthy snack if you stick to wholegrain kernels, and if you avoid microwave varieties and cook on your stovetop instead. Try healthy seasonings such as yellow curry powder or warmed coconut oil.
