Popcorn is Said to Contain More Antioxidants than Fruit and Veg

Recent American research has found that popcorn contains more antioxidants than fruit and vegetables.
In addition to being a great diet food, popcorn contains a high level of antioxidants which combat harmful molecules in the body.
Plain popcorn contains few calories. However, the American researchers are now claiming that it could even top fruits and vegetables in terms of antioxidant levels.
Antioxidants have many benefits for our health as they assist in the fight against cell damage.
Popcorn contains concentrated antioxidants as it is only four percent water, whereas, they are more diluted in fruits and veg as they contain 90 per cent water.
A single serving of popcorn consists of 300mg of antioxidants, that is, almost double the 160mg for any fruit per serving.
Moreover, they discovered that the crunchy hulls of the popcorn comprise the highest concentration of antioxidants as well as fibre.
