Description of Corn Pops
What are Corn Pops?
- Corn Pops are a popular breakfast cereal made by the company "Kellogg's" that are in the shape of yellow balls from popped up corn.
- Corn is the main ingredient in Corn Pops and has been artificially selected and GM'd for its ideal "yellow" trait
- Corn Pops originated in 1951 where various mascots such as pirates, cowboys and teddy bears were used to attract children
- Corn pops aren't heavily processed but do contain a lot of sugar and a harmful preservative
- Corn pops differ from countries as close as Canada and the U.S because of restrictions on raw materials and even a culture shift! this is surprising because nobody would think such a close relationship like ours and the United States' would bring about such variations in the product but they do!
-Corn is the main ingredient in Corn Pops and therefore must be defined & described first
Corn is in fact a grain although people argue it is a vegetable
- Corn is healthy for you and contains proteins, fats, fiber, potassium and vitamin A (an antioxidant) (New health guide, 2014).
- Corn is GM or genetically modified as yellow as it is the preferred allel by artificial selection
-Teosinte is the original corn crop that looks very different from modern-day corn...(Proneural, 2007).
Milled corn, sugar, soluble corn fibre, contains 2% or less of molasses, salt, hydrogenated coconut and soybean oil, wheat starch, annatto colour, BHT for freshness (Kellogg's, 2015).
Not too many hard-to-read ingredients, likely most are safe
- high in sugar since it is the 2nd ingredient
- BHT is a perservative used to prevent oils/fats from spoiling in food
- BHT is found to increase the risk of cancer in animals (Berkley Wellness, 2011).
whole grains cooked in a pressure cooker
pressure is released all at once and forces grains to POP
Grains then baked
Lots of sugar added to appeal to kids (Cellania, 2011).
-as we see, this cereal is not heavily processed like most foods today
- Pops are smoother and flatter
- Pops are round, spherical and bumpy
In both countries the taste is also different because of raw ingredients regulatory companies and also because of a difference in culture
Where can you get Corn Pops?
- Virtually, one can buy Corn Pops in any grocery/variety store and even in some gas stations
