I agree. Those microwave popcorn nutrition labels are a WEALTH of misinformation.
I've simply given up on them because I will not expose myself to all those trans fats.
And how in god's name can one determine how much grease sticks to the bag. (Oh, and real butter would spoil quickly without refrigeration so the butter flavored is exactly that "butter flavorING....straight from DuPont and Monsanto."
Dry popped is dull (but quick) and a good snack. For a higher calorie version, pan popping with a good oil (corn oil or peanut oil resists heat best) gives a healthy product with more flavor than air popped.
My fave oil, Canola, gets a weird taste when used to pop corn so it's out for me
But Microwave Popcorn is VERY risky food and has even landed many plant workers in the hospital from the poisonous fumes of the "butter" just a couple weeks ago.
Smart Balance has come out with a microwave line "promising" NO TRANS FATS but the stuff is just too overpriced for me. Hot air stuff is a quarter or two A POUND- can't beat it!
(It's really not a good Atkins food for those still depriving themselves of carbs.)
