Welcome to Mike's Popcorn Page. In this site I hope to explore the facts about popcorn, include my favourite recipes and look at some of the products that make a popcorn lovers life complete.

Popcorn is not a recent food but has been around for thousands of years. It is created by heating corn kernels which explode outwards once the water inside expands and builds up enough pressure. The great thing about popcorn is that it is a good source of carbohydrates, fibre and protein. Slimmers might also like to take note that it is very low in calories (27 calories per 100g) if eaten plain. Want to know more then read on...
