Popcorn

FUNCTIONS

Whole Grain

DESCRIPTION

Popped corn is a whole grain and is naturally high in dietary fiber and antioxidants.

Sunflower Oil

FUNCTIONS

Processed

DESCRIPTION

Sunflower oil is derived from the seeds of the sunflower plant and is commonly used in processed foods. Modern Western diets typically have ratios of omega-6 to omega-3 in excess of 10 to 1, some as high as 30 to 1, partly due to sunflower oil which has an omega-6 to omega-3 ratio of 1:0. The optimal ratio is thought to be 4 to 1 or lower.

Salt

FUNCTIONS

Processed

DESCRIPTION

Common salt is a mineral composed primarily of sodium chloride. Salt is essential for animal life, and saltiness is one of the basic human tastes. In general, Americans should limit daily sodium consumption to 2,300 milligrams, but this is an upper safe limit, not a recommended daily allowance.
