Popcorn Health Benefits and Safety

Popcorn’s benefit can be compared to fruits and vegetables. Popcorn is a 100 percent whole grain which means it is high in fiber – an insoluble type. Insoluble fibers contained in vegetables and whole grains like popcorn have been known to prevent constipation. With popcorn as a good source of fiber, a normal bowel movement is an advantage for cleansing the body of impurities.

Popcorn is also a good source of antioxidants. The polyphenols (antioxidants) are said to be concentrated on the hull rather than the white fluffy part. Antioxidants are beneficial for the body as these strengthen the immune system, delays ageing and fights free radicals accounted for cancer, heart conditions and other diseases.
