Is anyone besides me terrified of that orange grease that gets pumped into movie theater popcorn? Even the store-bought "butter flavor" variety is adulterated with refined soybean oil, excess salt and other nasties.
On it's own, popcorn is a whole grain, single-ingredient food that's surprisingly high in disease-preventing polyphenols. Adding pure melted butter tastes delicious and saves you from the toxic orange doom-slick.
I eat popcorn a lot more often now that I know that the kernels pop in the microwave without oil. Either this is the popcorn business's best-kept secret, or everyone I know is just pretending they don't believe me so I'll nuke a batch to prove it.
Either way, I'm addicted to the buttery, sweet-curry flavor of this popcorn! It's the only thing I use my microwave for. Enjoy.
