Poppin’ Olive’s Nutritional Benefits

Who’s Talking about Poppin’ Olive?

Pam Marcovitz, M.D. – Cardiologist

“Popcorn can be a healthy snack, but not when it’s loaded up with trans-fat or saturated fats. Regular popcorn can have as much as 60 grams of “bad fat” which quickly turns a low calorie, low fat diet into an “Artery Clogger”. Poppin’ Olive popcorn is made with a special blend of Extra Virgin Olive Oil, a monosaturated fat that actually helps raise the HDL (“good”) cholesterol. Poppin’ Olive has only 10 grams of fat that’s 87% less fat; which lets you enjoy without guilt.”
