Small kernels of corn bred specifically for popping. Popcorn is available in many color varieties including red, blue yellow and white. When the corn kernels are subject to heat the moisture inside the kernel expands and the kernel pops open creating a fluffy white puff of corn.
Popcorn is best stored in the refrigerator which helps to retain the moisture needed for effective popping.

Microwave popcorn is popcorn packed in special bags or boxes that confines the corn while it pops. Most of these products contain flavorings or other additives you might want to avoid like oil, salt and artificial butter flavorings. An alternative is to purchase a microwave popcorn popper which allows you to control what goes into your snack food.
