Can You Eat Popcorn on a Keto Diet

Popcorn is one of the most popular snack foods in the world. It’s a great way to pass time when you’re bored or just want something different from your usual diet. If you are interested in learning more about it, then read on!

What Is Popcorn Made Of?

The kernels of corn are made up of three parts: starch (a type of carbohydrate), water and protein. Cornstarch is a viscous liquid that gives corn its consistency. Water is used to keep the kernels from sticking together and prevents them from drying out. Protein helps make up for the lack of moisture by absorbing some of it.

How Do I Make Popcorn?

Corn is usually grown in large fields where they grow in rows and rows of corn. They are harvested once a year depending on their size, shape and quality. There are many types of corn including sweet, salty, sour, bitter and others that taste different than regular corn. Some varieties have added vitamins, minerals and other nutrients.

When you buy popcorn, you will see that it comes in various shapes and sizes. Most of these come in bags with labels like “regular” or “large.” These are called boxes because they contain several small pieces of corn rather than one big piece.
