When it comes to our health there are certain buzzwords that we all recognize as good. Low fat for example, good fats are another and then there’s the ever-popular antioxidants. Well when it comes to antioxidants, did you know that popcorn might actually have certain fruits and vegetables beat? A recent study has suggested that just one serving of the light and fluffy stuff has more antioxidants than an entire days worth of fruits or vegetables. This is based on the average persons diet. Could this mean that if we buy popcorn online we could in actual fact be taking a big step towards better health with great taste along the way.

This recent study by author Joe Vinson has now brought about the suggestion that popcorn may now be the ultimate snack. Popcorn is the only snack that’s 100% whole grain. Compare this with foods that have been labeled whole grain and only have 51% whole grain present and it’s easy to see why it’s leaps and bounds ahead straight away. Simply put, more whole grains mean more health benefits as whole grains contain not just more antioxidants but essential fiber that some fruit and vegetables lack.

Antioxidants are something that play a rather protective role against the horrid diseases in life such as cancer and heart disease to name a few. They can help fight free radicals, which are produced by the body in response to smoke and radiation exposure. This just backs up the theory that the more antioxidants we have, the better. Even the annoying bit of popcorn that always gets stuck in your teeth is good for you. Named the hull, did you know it actually has the highest concentration of antioxidants and fiber which will inevitably make you think twice when you next consider spitting it out.
