ingredients of popcorn
Popcorn makes you slim? Corn contains countless healthy substances, which makes popcorn healthy - and can even help you lose weight! Provided you prepare it correctly. We'll tell you what makes the little yellow corn kernel so healthy and delicious.
Popcorn contains antioxidants
Popped corn contains an extremely large number of antioxidants, i.e. radical scavengers that protect the body from environmental damage and carcinogenic pollutants. A serving of popcorn provides 300 milligrams of antioxidants (aka polyphenols). For comparison: the same portion of fruit only provides around 160 milligrams of polyphenols. In contrast to popcorn, fruit consists largely of water.
Popcorn is gluten free
Anyone can grab the bag: Popcorn is naturally gluten-free and more easily digestible than other snacks, which usually contain gluten.
Popcorn contains a lot of fiber
And a lot of indigestible fiber that keeps you full for a particularly long time. It literally swells up in the stomach. Especially when it comes to losing weight, popcorn - prepared with little oil and salt instead of sugar - is a popular substitute for chips and the like.
Popcorn makes you slim with the popcorn loop
But stay away from microwave and ready-made popcorn: it usually contains tons of sugar and fat to enhance the taste. Therefore, it is better to prepare the corn yourself. So you can control the fat content (or even leave it out completely) and decide for yourself what can go in. Best of all: With the Popcornloop stirrer, preparation is quick and easy and the popcorn is at least as crispy as it was in the cinema! Popcorn makes you slim and the popcorn loop helps you to prepare it the way you like it.
