Whole grains are considered to be nutritionally superior to refined grains because they are richer in dietary fiber, antioxidants, vitamins and minerals. The greater dietary fiber may be as much as four times that found in refined grains, and has been shown to reduce the incidence of some forms of cancer, digestive system maladies, gum and coronary heart disease, obesity and diabetes. It can also result in significant cardio-vascular benefits, according to many health studies.
Popcorn, Indiana's Original Kettlecorn and our new Sea Salt Popcorn are both certified as a whole grain snack, as evidenced by their official USDA whole grain icon. If you eat just two servings of our new Sea Salt Popcorn, which has 22 grams of whole grains per serving (for a total of 44 grams) you will have consumed nearly your entire daily USDA recommended allowance of 48 grams of whole grain. Which in our book is a Munch Better™ way to snack!
