Popcorn has more antioxidants than fruits, veggies

Popcorn contains more polyphenol antioxidants than fruits or vegetables, according to findings presented at the national meeting and exposition of the American Chemical Society.

Polyphenols are more concentrated in popcorn as the snack contains only about 4% water whereas polyphenols are diluted in many fruits and vegetables that contain as much as 90% water. In addition, the hulls of popcorn, the part that typically gets stuck in one's teeth, actually have the highest concentration of polyphenols and fiber.


Ancient grains for modern trends

Perhaps Atahuallpa, while ruling the Incan empire, never bit into a seasoned multigrain cracker featuring quinoa and amaranth. Maybe a strawberry smoothie with chia never brought a smile to the face of an Aztec warrior. Yet consumers in the 21st century have the chance to enjoy the merger of ancient grains and today's trending food and beverage products.
