Popcorn is good for you

It comes in a bucket and served at your local multiplex. But we bet you didn’t know that popcorn is a wholegrain and a 30gm serving—12 handfuls—means one less daily portion of millet or buckwheat.

A fibre content that kicks like Bruce Lee keeps you full for longer, balancing blood and seeing off bad cholesterol. The Centre for Human Nutrition in Nebraska found that popcorn-munchers had a 250 per cent higher intake of wholegrains and 22 per cent more fibre than nacho scoffers.

Add that to a dose of heart-healthy B vitamins to fire up energy levels and steel nerves so you never lose your cool, no matter how much your life might seem like Dev D’s.
