Popcorn

Popcorn is a variety of corn that is dehydrated and heated. When heated, pressure builds and the kernel pops open. Buttered popcorn is commonly associated with trips to the movie theater. It is also made in many other varieties such as caramel and cheddar.

Can you lose weight eating nothing but popcorn for a week?

User Avatar
You'll probably lose weight by just eating popcorn for a week, but it will be mostly water weight and the weight you lost (and usually more) will come back on once you start eating normally. It's best to eat a varied diet with lots of lean meats, low-fat dairy, whole grains, fruits and vegetables.

Is Boy Scout popcorn gluten free?

User Avatar
Popcorn itself is naturally gluten free - BUT! - if you check the website for Trail's End who currently (2011) supply the scouts with their popcorn for sales, they say themselves that it is processed and packaged in lines that are also used for products containing wheat. And if you know anything about cross - contamination, that means the popcorn supplied to the scouts is NOT GLUTEN FREE.

Can you change the moisture content in popcorn?

User Avatar
If the unpopped popcorn is too dry, it will not pop, as it is the pressure from steam building up inside the popcorn shell which makes it pop. To remoisten dried out popcorn one could try to put the popcorn in a plastic bag or airtight container in the fridge with some slices of raw potato. The moisture from the potato slices should then evaporate and get absorbed by the popcorn.

How can you cook popcorn in the heat with tinfoil?

User Avatar
No you should not that is very dangerous it's like putting metal in the oven or microwave. Also if you ever think of heating something up in plastic, don't. When you heat food up in a microwave some toxins or something like that gets into your food and it leads to cancer later on in life. Back to the cooking popcorn in tinfoil. My opinion is to not heat it up with it wrapped in tinfoil, but that is just my opinion. If you think you should then go ahead and do it. If you think that then why did you ask this question. Your so stupid. Just kidding you can believe and do what ever you want. I work at Duke University if you don't think I'm right you are just hard headed. I got accepted to teach at Duke because I am smart. I teach science, so you can ask me any questions in the science category. I taught first, sixth, ninth, twelfth, and kindergarten. I have taught every subject I just prefer teaching science. My name is Professor/Doctor Kelley and if you go to Duke why don't you stop by and tell me how well I did on this entry. This is my first entry i have done and I hope you like what i think. I love my students. I love my colleagues. I love my family. Done perfectly by Professor/Doctor Kelly

Try the kettle corn, it tastes similar but not the same.

What does the tomato and popcorn percentages on direct tv mean?

User Avatar
We include ratings from Rotten Tomatoes and Flixster for every movie that has been rated by these services. The figures next to these images represent the percentage of critics and audience members who liked the movie. A red tomato means the movie received positive reviews. A splattered green tomato means the movies has been negatively reviewed. The popcorn images are from Flixster, the full popcorn container means the audience generally liked the movie. The spilled popcorn container means audiences didn't find the movie appealing.

Can frozen popcorn be used in popcorn machine?

User Avatar
Most likely yes. But why would you freeze popcorn in the first place? You may find that when frozen popcorn is put in a popcorn machine, the outside of the kernals will "cook" much quicker than the insides will heat up. This means that they kernals may end up burnt on the outside before the oil inside the kernal has reached a heat that will make it pop. This may result in burnt popcorn.

Asked in History and Origins of Foods, Popcorn

What ever happened to tv time popcorn that you could buy in the supermarkets in the 60's it came in a packet with salt and popcorn on one side and hard butter on the other?

User Avatar
TV Time Foods was based in Bremen, Indiana. Their claim to fame was a two-part package that held popcorn and butter flavored salt in one side and coconut oil in the other. This allowed the buyer to have everything in a single package, but kept it fresh while on the shelf. They hit the market in the early 1950s, as television took America by storm and people wanted to enjoy movie-style popcorn at home. Some of their early advertising was of course on TV, on the Annie Oakley show from 1954-1957. The company overspent on advertising though, and went bankrupt three times. TV Time was finally sold to Great Western Products in 1992 and the brand was last available in 2002. Great Western still sells their own version of the product though, in the same Dual Pak pouch.

No, in fact butter burns so easily it's not really good for popping pop corn. It's just good melted and poured over the popped corn.
