Nutritionally, there's obviously a lot you can't get from popcorn - it has negligible vitamin content, some minerals. If, by "healthy," those involved in the study mean that you may get more antioxidants than some fruits and vegetables, okay. But that's really a different statement than, "Popcorn is more healthy than fruits and vegetables!!!" Nah. It's just a good source of a particular compound.
Thanks.

Except popcorn contains little amount of vitamins compared to fruits and vegetables.

....

I want to know the name of the study and who funded it. The first thing I thought was well duh...whole grains are good for you in certain amount. The second thing I thought was...monsanto. And then after seeing that its all in the hull that usually ends up uneaten at the bottom of the bowl....I just rolled my eyes and laughed like I do at 100 calories snack packs loaded with junk calories.

DO NOT eat microwave popcorn. The chemicals that are put into the bag are dangerous.

Default Did the taste of "movie popcorn" change over the years?

It seems to have changed. Maybe they use different popping oils/butter........

oh sure it has. It used to made with real butter, then it was a combo and now I am guessing it is butter flavor. I have noticed any pop corn out of a machine anymore leaves a slightly greasy film in my mouth. It tastes great while eating it, but the after part isn't so yummy.

Definitely. I used to go to a vintage art house theatre that intentionally chose to use actual butter as a topping, not the artificial stuff...world of difference.
