Popcorn is perhaps the most perfect and perfectly named snack. “Popcorn” aptly describes what it is as well as the sound it makes as it transmutes into its final fluffy snack form. Popcorn is tasty, cheap, easy to make and will even help you floss between your teeth. But the pillowy, crunchy, inside-out kernels of goodness are hiding some even better benefits.
Popcorn is pretty unique as a snack as it is 100% unprocessed whole grain. You know that doctors and nutritionists love to tout the greatness of whole grains. They may not know exactly what makes whole grains so great, but they are, and popcorn is a great whole grain.
