This Superfood-Sprinkled Popcorn Is Your New Favorite Healthy Snack
When it comes to popcorn, we’ve seen it all. We’ve seen it candy-coated, chocolate-covered, spiced with our favorite seasoning and topped with nutty nutritional yeast. And now, there’s a line of popcorn that’s sprinkled with tasty and oh-so-healthy superfoods.
Activated Superfood Popcorn is made with health-focused, nutrient-dense and fermented ingredients with live enzymes that you can actually feel good about eating. (No low-calorie, low-sodium gimmicks here.) The organic superfood popcorn from Living Intentions — available at Whole Foods — retails for $5.49 per bag and comes in four flavors: Tandoori Turmeric, Salsa Verde, Cinnamon Twist and Berry Superfruit. Each flavor is made with a different fermented ingredient.
The Tandoor Turmeric is made with fermented black cumin seed, turmeric extract, ashwagandha, nutritional yeast, lemon peel, coriander, black pepper and chilies. The Salsa Verde is flavored with fermented black garlic, spinach, spirulina, dill, cumin, kale, turmeric, thyme and Himalayan crystal salt.
The Cinnamon Twist, which is the sweetest of the bunch, uses fermented ginger, maca root, reishi mushroom, nutmeg, cinnamon, maple sugar and stevia extract. And the Berry Superfruit is made with fermented beetroot, banana powder, lucuma fruit, camu camu (a deep purple cherry-like fruit), freeze-dried blackberry and Maqui berry.
All of these flavors are gluten-free, non-GMO and organic.
So instead of putting all of these superfoods into your smoothies this summer, mix it up and snack on them in popcorn form. (And if you rather make your own, you can use these flavors as inspiration for your very own superfood popcorn at home.)
