A lot of comments here about popcorn having no nutritional value. That is far from correct. See below:
According to new research, a handful of plain popcorn might be: as part of his presentation at the American Chemical Society meeting on Sunday in San Diego, Joe Vinson, a professor of chemistry at the University of Scranton revealed that the hull that surrounds popping corn is unusually rich in polyphenols -- a type of antioxidant associated with helping to prevent cancer. Antioxidants repair cellular damage caused by "free radicals" -- unstable molecules in our body.
Vinson and his co-investigator, Michael Coco, Jr. tested four different brands of popcorn, grinding up the popped kernels and analyzing them. They found that 90 percent of the polyphenols came from the hull rather than the "white fluffy stuff" and that the overall load was high: 242-363 milligrams per one-ounce serving. (By comparison, fruits like apples and pears often have about 160 milligrams of the antioxidants per ounce.) Overall, about 1.5 percent of popped corn is comprised of polyphenols, according to TIME Healthland.
Polyphenols are found in foods derived from plants, but popcorn may be an especially rich food source because it is minimally processed. While many of the grains we consume are refined, popcorn is not. It is also low in water, which means it simply has a more concentrated antioxidant load than water-heavy fruits and veggies.
Still, fruits and vegetables -- as well as other sources of polyphenols like red wine and dark chocolate -- have other vitamins and minerals that popcorn does not have, making them particularly healthful.
You know corn has virtually no nutritional value, right folks? I'm not saying popcorn is a vegetable, (seems like a long stretch) but if yall are saying popcorn isn't nutritional enough to be a vegetable, and it's very low nutritional value is the reason you know it's not a vegetable......well with this logic, corn is not a vegetable due to it's low to nonexistent nutritional value....just a thought...
