I’ve been asked before if popcorn causes constipation.
In fact, no, it doesn’t. Popcorn is a high fiber snack that can contain up to six grams of fiber per cup. You could even call popcorn a high fiber supplement. Of course, how healthy popcorn is depends on how much butter, salt, sugar, and caramel you pile on top.
I make my popcorn in a big cast iron saucepan using a bit of good quality olive oil. I make sure the oil is good and hot before I put the popcorn in the pot. Once it’s done, I add a tiny bit of sea salt to the popcorn. That, my friends, is a perfectly healthy snack. Popcorn made with healthy oil, minimal salt, and no butter is an excellent source of fiber. It’ll be even better for your bowels if you drink some water with your bowl of popcorn.

Once you start adding a ton of toppings to your popcorn, you’re changing its nature. In the case of caramel popcorn, it probably is constipating.
I’m lucky enough to grow my own popcorn. It’s quite easy to grow. I readily endorse popcorn as a fantastically good snack to eat. Prepared properly, it not only doesn’t cause constipation, it can help treat it.
