Selecting Healthy Popcorn Options
• A number of products contain palm oil. Use of this product will increase the amount of saturated fat in the product. Look for products that have 1.5 grams of saturated fat or less.
• Look for products that have 300 milligrams of sodium or less per serving. Many products contain significant amounts of sodium. Remember sea salt does not mean low sodium.
• Look for a product that is labeled “94% Fat Free” or “No Oil” popcorn.
• While those popcorn products that have added chocolate, caramel or other sweeteners may taste good, the additions can lead to an increase in calories. Often the serving size of these products is smaller.
