Day Forty Four.
As I have stated in the past, examining food labels for GMO’s can be pretty confusing. This one shocked me and I didn’t believe it at first. Currently in the United States there are NO genetically modified popcorn kernels. Yup, you heard me! ALL popcorn is GMO free. That being said, this does not necessarily mean the oils and butters that are used to cook the popcorn are not laden with GMO’s and other fun artificial flavors and colors. The kernels themselves are a different variety from the corn your buy on the cob and they have not figured out how to genetically modify these…yet.
So when you go and purchase popcorn next time save your wallet a few bucks from purchasing organic and get a plain popcorn that you pop on the stove or in your air popper. We love Orville Redenbacher’s Gourmet White Corn Popping Corn.
Publix often does B1G1 deals on this brand and you can find coupons online to make this popcorn a pretty tasty deal. Unless, your are buying organic or nonGMO project certified, I would still avoid the microwave popcorn and other popcorns that come with oil or butter already on them.
What is your favorite way to eat popcorn? Ours is with a little butter and parmesan cheese sprinkled on top.
