The Corn That Goes Pop! Pop! Pop!

 

National Popcorn Day

 

Popcorn has been around since thousand of years ago and originated in Mexico. It is one of six main varieties of corn or maize – pod, sweet, flour, dent, and flint. Popcorn differs from other types of corn in that it has a thicker pericarp/hull. The hull allows pressure from the heated water to build and eventually bursts open. The inside starch becomes gelatinous while being heated; when the hull bursts, the gelatinized starch spills out and cools, giving it its familiar popcorn shape. At the heart of this endearing little kernel is a healthful whole-grain. Popcorn adds fiber to the diet, naturally low in fat and calories, gluten-free, and non-GMO. That is why it is called as the healthiest snack in the world.

Before long it was discovered to be a light and delicious treat, and cultivation led to the popcorn we have today. Popcorn has been used for everything  from arts and crafts to the foundation of some of the most popular treats around. You can find it just about anywhere you go! With the technology today, we can just pop and pop and pop a popcorn any time of the day. The National Popcorn Board decided that this fluffy treat needed a day of celebration and recognition of its own, and thus was born National Popcorn day!
