Popcorn Is Healthy Enough

Popcorn Is Healthy Enough

While there is no doubt that fresh fruits and vegetables have their own benefits, a recent study has recommended popcorn for being rich in healthy antioxidants. It was found by the researchers from the University of Scranton in Pennsylvania that popcorns can be considered as healthy enough.

It was only after the team could find some 300 milligrams of polyphenols in the popcorns that they claimed that this much ratio of antioxidant can lower cholesterol and subsequently avert the risk of cancer. It is to be noted that the tea had studied air popped and microwave popped to ensure their underlying theory.

However, there should not be too much of oil and salt added while making them else it could reverse the health benefits.

Moreover, the lead author of the study, Dr. Joe Vinson, claimed that popcorn is the only snack which can be categorized as 100 per cent unprocessed whole grain, with mere one serving can provide 70% of the required level of whole grain intake.

With popcorn being tagged as almost fat-free, it seems that all those who are keen to shed kilos can actually gorge on the snack while having fun with their friends.
