Check out these interesting facts about popcorn:

  • Popcorn from Mexico has been carbon-dated and found to be over 5,600 years old!

Where does popcorn come from?

Popcorn comes from corn.

However, the corn we use to make popcorn differs from the corn we eat for dinner.

Did you know that only one variety of maize creates the kernels that become the popcorn we love?

That is right; the zea mays kernel gives us the seeds for Americans’ favorite snack. 

Popcorn is one of six major types of corn. 

The other five are dent corn, flint corn, pod corn, flour corn, and sweet corn. 

How does popcorn pop?

Popcorn uses science to become the snack that keeps us returning for more. 

The inside of a popcorn kernel is starchy, and the outer shell is hard.

There is a small amount of liquid on the inside.

When the kernels are heated, heat causes the moisture in the grain to convert into steam which puts pressure on the seed.

The starchy interior puffs out and expands, and the fluffy white snack we love forms from the pressure. 

Is popcorn healthy?

Health is a subjective term.

What works for some may not work for others.

Popcorn can be an excellent snack when prepared healthily.

It is high in fiber and contains some beneficial antioxidants.

Popcorn contains the antioxidant polyphenol, which is excellent in aiding the body’s cells from free radicals. 

It is also a gluten-free snack, so it’s great for people with celiac or gluten intolerance.
