Popcorn – the perfect snack

HEALTHY: But keep it plain

FEELING peckish? Pop some popcorn, it’s a great healthy snack with a low calorie content and a high level of antioxidants.

In fact, there are more antioxidants in popcorn than in fruit and vegetables due to its lower water content although it doesn’t have the vitamin and mineral content.

Whilst scientists say it could be the perfect snack, they warn that preparation is key – plain popcorn is better for you and microwave popcorn has twice as many calories as air-popped.
