New Popcorn Brands Focus On Healthful Ingredients

August 10, 2020: 12:00 AM EST

As nutritionists have pointed out for years, fiber-rich popcorn is a healthful snack but lacks what health-conscious snackers want: protein. So, smaller brands of BFY pre-air popped popcorn snacks have been emerging lately that use non-GMO corn fortified with pea protein, spirulina, or nutritional yeast. Pop Zero ($3.99) adds pea protein, a complete vegan protein with all nine essential amino acids that the body can’t make on its own. Other BFY popcorn snack makers include: Azzizah’s Herbal Green Popcorn ($14.77) with protein-rich spirulina (algae); Three Dads Popcorn ($3.99) with nutritional yeast (“nooch”; Sakara’s Sweet, Salty, and Cheezy Popcorn Trio ($45) with coconut sugar and nutritional yeast; Project Pop ($22 for a 2-pack) with coconut oil; and Pop Zero with algae oil plus vitamin A, vitamin B-12, iron, and omega-3 fatty acids.[Image Credit: © Pop Zero]
