America’s No. 1 Snack

Popcorn is America’s favorite snack food. About 17 billion quarts of popcorn are eaten yearly, 70% being enjoyed at home. It is 100% whole grain nourishment. As in all whole grain, popcorn contains a lot of polyphenol antioxidants that prevent cellular damage from toxins. Researchers reported these findings at the 238th National Meeting of the American Chemical Society (ACS). Dr. Joe Vinson of the University of Pennsylvania said, “Early researchers thought fiber was the active ingredient for the benefits of whole grain … But recently polyphenols emerged as potentially more important.” Dr. Vinson further reported, “We really were surprised by the levels of polyphenols we found in popcorn. I guess it is because it’s not processed.”

Choose Real Organic

Not all popcorn is a healthy snack. Conventional non-organic popcorn is on FDA’s Total Diet Study listing the top 10 foods most contaminated with pesticides and chemicals. The chemicals are POPs (persistent organic pollutants) and have serious implications even when exposure is at extraordinarily low levels because many of these chemicals mimic human and animal hormones and cross the placenta during pregnancy. POPs are also linked to declining population of birds and other animals. Organic agriculture cleanses the environment. EDEN Popcorn – for better taste and better quality of life.
