Awhile ago, I posted a question regarding Jolly Time Popcorn:
Does anyone know how Jolly Time Healthy pop could really have over double the fiber of other popcorn brands? I've looked at serving sizes for popped and unpopped, and no matter how you cut it, their fiber looks significantly higher. There's nothing on the ingredient list that would account for extra fiber - it just seems odd to me
If anyone is interested, I received a reply from the company today - and based on my personal observations visually comparing the popcorn to other brands, it's seems a completely legitimate explanation - They explained that they do grow their own popcorn hybrid that has a smaller popped kernel size. Comparing volume to volume with another popcorn brand would mean more popped kernels in the JollyTime, therefore, since the fiber is in the hull of each kernel, and a bag of JollyTime has more kernels per popped volume, it has a higher fiber content.
