ORGANIC YELLOW POPCORN
AN IDEAL GUILT-FREE HEALTH SNACK
Popcorn is usually the snack of choice reserved for movie nights, sports events and various other activities. However, since commercially available popcorn is often laden with added salt, butter, oil, artificial flavoring and other additives, it typically isn’t thought of as a healthy snack. In fact, some versions are so unhealthy, you could get an entire day’s worth of calories from consuming just a single bucket. Not to mention, most movie theater popcorn contains harmful chemicals that can negatively impact your health.
What most people don’t realize is that popcorn on its own can actually be a healthy whole grain food. After all, when you take away all the other added ingredients, popcorn is simply a specialized type of corn.
Health Ranger Select Organic Yellow Popcorn is a much healthier alternative to microwave or movie theater popcorn. This ideal guilt-free health snack contains no dangerous chemicals, GMOs, artificial flavorings or any harmful additives. Great for movie nights, picnics, parties or quick snacks, our organic yellow popcorn can be air-popped or cooked directly on the stove. It is vegan, non-GMO, non-China, certified organic and Kosher and is lab tested for glyphosate, heavy metals and microbiology.
What is Organic Yellow Popcorn and what makes it so special?**
Yellow popcorn is a whole grain snack derived from dried corn kernels that pop into large and crunchy puffs when heated. These delectable puffs have a toasty corn flavor and are surprisingly filling since their high volume means they can take up a lot of space in your stomach. It is also the only snack that is 100% unprocessed whole grain.
When eaten plain without any unhealthy additives, air-popped organic yellow popcorn can actually be a good source of antioxidant polyphenols, beneficial plant compounds and other nutrients. It is lower in calories than white popcorn and contains more fiber than many other popular snack foods. It is easy to overlook its nutritional value, but when prepared properly and eaten in moderation, organic yellow popcorn can make a fine addition to a healthy diet.
The hidden dangers of
The next time you go to the grocery store or supermarket, take a look at the labels of the popcorn products you see. They contain many hidden dangers that can be detrimental to your health.
ADDED SALT AND SUGAR
Many commercially available popcorn products are loaded with unhealthy trans fats, which may increase your risk of heart disease. In fact, artificial trans-fatty acids are known to cause 50,000 fatal heart attacks per year.
Certain vegetable oils can greatly diminish polyphenol content of popcorn once it pops, thus negating the potential health benefits the antioxidant polyphenols might have offered.
All the excess salt and sugar in microwave or movie theater popcorn can really undermine any health benefits that popcorn has to offer.
PERFLUORINATED COMPOUNDS (PFCS)
PFCs are grease-proof chemicals that are used to line the insides of the packaging for microwave popcorn. As if that weren’t bad enough, when these chemicals get heated in a microwave, they break down into perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA), a suspected cancer-causing agent. PFOA can seep into the popcorn you eat and make its way into your bloodstream, where it can stay in your body for a very long time.
Diacetyl is an addictive flavoring that is used to give microwave popcorn its buttery flavor and aroma. Also commonly found in fruit drinks, caramel products and some dairy products, this chemical can lead to severe and irreparable lung damage. It is even known to cause a disease called popcorn lung.
Neonicotinoids or neonic chemicals are often used as an insecticide and sprayed on most commercial popcorn crops. Unfortunately, these harmful chemicals have neurotoxic properties and their residues can still make their way into your system when you eat popcorn grown from these crops.
