is one of the world's favorite snacks. And guess what? Most of
the popcorn in the world is grown right here in the good old U.S.A.
In 2001 alone, the U.S. exported 229 million pounds of popcorn!
Popcorn is a source
of fiber, also known as roughage. Popcorn is low in calories:
31 - 55 per cup of unbuttered, 133 calories lightly buttered.
Popcorn is sugar free
and fat free, yet has energy-producing carbohydrates. It's great
for between meal snacks as it does not overfill you or spoil your
appetite. And did you know that there are dozens of ways to make
popcorn other than just plain popped?
