The Health Benefits of Gourmet Popcorn

“There’s something healthy about popcorn?” That’s a question that we hear all of the time. We understand that, at first, “healthy popcorn” may sound like a bit of an oxymoron. After all, for many of us, our first memory of popcorn is getting it at the movie theater, slathered in butter, and in a bag that’s so big and vast we could’ve carried an entire trip’s worth of groceries in it. However, gourmet popcorn really can be one of the healthiest ways to snack. No one’s ever going to confuse popcorn for, say, an apple. But, with our popcorn, you can snack healthier and wiser than you might with just about anything else. 

Gourmet Popcorn that’s Truly “Gourmet” 

The dictionary definition of gourmet as an adjective is “or characteristic of a gourmet, especially in involving or purporting to involve high-quality or exotic ingredients and skilled preparation.” That’s exactly what our popcorn is. We use only the highest quality ingredients. Beyond that, we make sure that they’re prepared for you in an expert, professional way. We know that you have many choices when it comes to popcorn, which is just one reason that we do everything we can to provide you with the best popcorn possible.

Healthy Parts of Popcorn 

Most people don’t realize this, but popcorn can have plenty of whole grains in it. If you go through the supermarket, look at how many items advertise that they have “whole grains.” While there are many that offer them, popcorn may have as many (if not more) whole grains than anything else. What makes these whole grains so great is that they have plenty of antioxidants in them. Antioxidants can help to keep your body healthy in a variety of ways, not the least of which is through their suppression and elimination of free radicals. There’s nothing good about these free radicals in their body, as they can cause an awful lot of damage. Eating popcorn can help to boost your body’s natural defenses against free radicals. 

Low Fat, High Fiber 

There’s a reason that, when you look at the labels on a food item, fat is towards the top. You always want to be careful to not consume too much fat. Of course, some fat is OK, and Saturated Fat (to say nothing of Trans Fat) is far more of a threat to your health than just regular fat. However, eating foods that are low in fat can go a long way towards improving your health. Popcorn can be a food that naturally has low fat. Additionally, popcorn is extremely high in fiber, which has a wealth of health benefits for your body as well. 

A Gift for Others, a Gift for Yourself 

We offer popcorn gifts that can be given to essentially anyone that you want to buy gifts for. By that same token, you deserve a gift, too.
