Transcript: Popcorn First, the popcorn is picked from the plant Then, the popcorn is dried out. They are then bagged, sold, and bought by companies and customers. Then, once we buy them, they probably sit on our shelves for a couple days until productivityness to get up and make them. We get the unpopped popcorn out, and get out a pot. We put the popcorn kernals into the pot, and let them pop for a bit. Inside every kernal, there is a mixture of oils. The outer, moisture-proof layer houses the inner, dense mixture. When heated, the mixture starts to boil, and become less dense, untill thed shell becomes more moist, and it becomes a steam-filled time bomb, untill it explodes into the popped shape. The breaking point of the hull is about 150psi Then we take the popcorn out and pour it into a bowl. Then, we put butter into the pan we just used. Now, pour the melted butter onto the popcorn. Now, toss some salt into it. History ' Popcorn was first discovered thousands of years ago by Native Americans. It is one of the oldest forms of corn: evidence of popcorn from 3600 B.C. was found in New Mexico and even earlier evidence dating to perhaps as early as 4700 BC was found in Peru. Some Popcorn has been found in early 1900's to be a purple color.' -Wikipedia, popcorn The English came to America during thne 16th and 17th centuries, and found out about it. During the Great Depression, popcorn cost about 5-10 cents cdn apiece, so while other buisnesses grew bankrupt, struggling farmers had better income and profit. During World War II, They had rations on sugar, which caused less candy to be produced. This, in turn, caused Americans to eat more popcorn than ever.
Transcript: There is large amounts of oil inside the popcorn.When it pops,A mini explosion is the end result and it starts to puff up into a white ball with a kernel inside. Popcorn has trace amounts of oil and this causes it to become what it is known for today. Also The oil in the popcorn results in a mini explosion when heat is involves Akshay Ratti What happens during heating to change the kernel? The gas law involved is the Gay-lussac law which states that pressure is proportional to the kelvin temperature Brief history of popcorn What is inside the kernel before the popping What happens is the kernel starts to heat up making it form a abstract circle shape which causes the popcorn to form in a instant burst.The causes of this is heat being taken in to induce a series of events to make the popcorn.

Transcript: Popcorn Science was never more interesting Invented by Percy Spencer in the mid 1940s after he invented the microwave Popcorn and the Movies - Origins At first theater owners hated popcorn. It made a mess in their theaters. They felt it distracted from the movie experience. At this time, popcorn was sold primarily by street vendors, who would push their popcorn carts around and sell popcorn to people walking down the sidewalks. Movie theaters were attractive places for these street vendors because they could count on crowds of people at regular intervals. Popcorn Comes Inside In 1925 Charles Manley, an inventor from Butte, Montana, perfected the first electric popcorn machine. He marketed the machine to movie theater owners, and one of the most successful combinations in culinary history was born. During the Great Depression, a nickel bag of popcorn was one of the few treats people could afford. Unlike many other confections, sales of popcorn increased during the Great Depression. The main reasons were that it was filling, cheap and tasty - in a way like the movies of that era. A night at the movies was about the cheapest entertainment a family could buy, and popcorn went right along with that. Some theater owners actually lowered ticket prices when they installed their popcorn machines and saw profits go through the roof. The Endurance of Popcorn Once established, popcorn became an integral part of the movie experience. In the 1950's the amount of money made from popcorn exceeded the amount made from movies themselves. Popcorn had arrived. As television emerged, people continued the association between watching images on a screen and eating popcorn. In the 1970s and '80s, the simultaneous rise of VCR's and microwave ovens further contributed to the link between watching movies and eating popcorn, as microwave popcorn became a quick, clean way to cook popcorn while watching a movie at home. - The 'net' question Corny Facts Americans consume some 16 billion quarts of this whole grain, good-for-you treat. That’s 51 quarts per man, woman, and child. Compared to most snack foods, popcorn is low in calories. Air-popped popcorn has only 31 calories per cup. Oil-popped is only 55 per cup. (Calculate a percentage for the lesser amount of calories in air-popped popcorn as compared to oil-popped) Popcorn is a type of maize (or corn), a member of the grass family, and is scientifically known as Zea mays everta. Of the 6 types of maize/corn—pod, sweet, flour, dent, flint, and popcorn—only popcorn pops. Popcorn is a whole grain. It is made up of three components: the germ, inner tissue, and pericarp (also know as the hull) Popcorn needs between 13.5-14% moisture to pop. Popcorn differs from other types of maize/corn in that is has a thicker pericarp/hull. The hull allows pressure from the heated water to build and eventually bursts open. (physics) The inside starch (biology) becomes gelatinous while being heated; when the hull bursts, the gelatinized starch spills out and cools, giving it its familiar popcorn shape. Most U.S. popcorn is grown in the Midwest, primarily in Indiana, Nebraska, Ohio, Illinois, Iowa, Kentucky and Missouri. Many people believe the acres of corn they see in the Midwest during growing season could be picked and eaten for dinner, or dried and popped. In fact, those acres are typically field corn, which is used largely for livestock feed, and differs from both sweet corn and popcorn. The peak period for popcorn sales for home consumption is in the fall. Most popcorn comes in two basic shapes when it's popped: snowflake and mushroom. Snowflake is used in movie theaters and ballparks because it looks and pops bigger. Mushroom is used for candy confections because it doesn't crumble. Popping popcorn is one of the number one uses for microwave ovens. Most microwave ovens have a "popcorn" control button. "Probability" is popcorn lingo that refers to the percentage of kernels that pop. There is no such thing as “hull-less” popcorn. All popcorn needs a hull in order to pop. Some varieties of popcorn have been bred so the hull shatters upon popping, making it appear to be hull-less. How high popcorn kernels can pop? Up to 3 feet in the air. The world’s largest popcorn ball was created by volunteers in Sac City, Iowa in February, 2009. It weighed 5,000 lbs., stood over 8 ft. tall, and measured 28.8 ft. in circumference. If you made a trail of popcorn from New York City to Los Angeles, you would need more than 352,028,160 popped kernels! When? A microwave oven cooks by creating microwaves, a form of light or electromagnetic radiation. These are produced on the right hand side of the oven and are sent into the main oven. They reflect back and forth creating a standing wave. Artificial Selection Disadvantage: Loss of Variety Selective breeding often requires inbreeding of animals and plants. This decreases genetic variety in the gene pool. As genetic variety is lost, the organisms express similar

Transcript: During the Depression, popcorn was 5 to 10 cents. a bag was one of the few things that affected families could afford. xarj.net The History of Popcorn todayifoundout.com Six places in America claim that they are the "Popcorn Capital of the World". These include Ridgway, Illinois; Valparaiso, Indiana; Van Buren, Indiana; Schaller, Iowa; Marion, Ohio; and North Loup, Nebraska. The english in the 16th century discovered popcorn from the Native Americans. Popcorn is one of the oldest forms of corn eaten. It was first eaten by Native Americans. popcornboxes.net One of the ancient ways to pop corn was to heat sand in a fire and stir kernels of popcorn in when the sand was fully heated. Americans today consume 17 billion quarts of popped popcorn each year. The average American eats about 54 quarts. The oldest ears of popcorn ever found were discovered in the Bat Cave of west central New Mexico in 1948

Transcript: Popcorn Is there a special type of kernal? Yes, popcorn has a special kind of flint corn that was selected by Native Americans in early western civilizations. You ask, how does popcorn pop? The Corn is able to pop because, like sorghum, quinoa and millet, its kernels have a hard moisture-sealed hull and a dense starchy interior. Pressure builds inside the kernel until an explosive "pop" results. Some strains of corn are now cultivated specifically as popping corns. Unpopped corn, prepared for popping Popped popcorn, ready for eating Are there health risks? Popcorn is included on the list of foods that the American Academy of Pediatrics recommends not serving to children under four, because of the risk of choking. Fun Facts!!(: 1. Popcorn is low in calories -- only 31-55 calories in one cup of unbuttered. 2. Popcorn needs between 13.5-14% moisture to pop. 3. Most U.S. popcorn is grown in the Midwest, primarily in Indiana, Nebraska, Ohio, Illinois, Iowa, Kentucky and Missouri. 4. There is such a thing as National popcorn. 5. The peak period for popcorn sales for home consumption is in the fall. "Mushroom"-shaped popcorn, left, is less fragile and less tender than "butterfly"-shaped, right Are there different types of popcorn? How many? First of all there are many different kinds of popcorn. Microwave Popcorn Microwave popcorn is one of the most commonly known types of popcorn. The popcorn is already in a bag, and sometimes includes the salt and butter and optional seasonings. The kernels are popped inside of a microwave. This is a quick and easy way to make popcorn, though some say microwave popcorn is one of the most unhealthy methods when making popcorn. Old-fashioned Popcorn Historically, old-fashioned popcorn was made with a sauce pan on the top of a stove. There are people who still desire this kind of popcorn, as it can be less buttery and salty than other kinds of popcorn. This kind of popcorn takes longer to make and has a greater chance of being burned, as well as a higher number of unpopped kernels. Hot Air Popcorn Hot air popcorn is made with electronic hot air machines. This kind of popcorn is healthy because it doesn't use oil in its production. Electronic hot air popcorn machines work faster than microwaves and leave fewer kernels unpopped. Kettle Corn Kettle corn is a type of popcorn that has a sweet taste mixed with the popcorn's usual salty taste. This kind of popcorn has less fat and sodium than other popcorns with flavored seasoning. Traditionally, kettle corn is made in iron kettles and sweetened with sugar, honey and molasses.
