POPCORN :http://8swiss.com/popcorn/index.htm

Popcorn, one of the most popular snack foods in the world, is known for being a high fiber, healthy food. Our research has found that commercial popcorn also contains significant amounts of the class of antioxidants known as phenolic acids. Furthermore, the popping process was found not to significantly decrease the antioxidant capacity. These results indicate that a considerable amount of the bound polyphenols are bioaccessible. Due to the high levels of bioaccessible polyphenols, popcorn may be a significant source of dietary polyphenol antioxidants. The major difference between popcorn and other maizes is that the pericarp (skin) of the popcorn is much harder and not as porous as the pericarps of other types of maize.

Keywords: Popcorn, polyphenols, antioxidant capacity, Zea mays L., pericarp, Folin–Ciocalteu, FRAP, glyphosate
