Popcorn but has an average water content just 4%., while they are higher in the shell of popcorn (it is these pieces that "stick" between the teeth). The shell also has the highest fiber content.

"The fewer calories have popcorn cooked in hot air," he says. "The popcorn cooked in the microwave is at least 50% more, and when someone bakes oil has twice the calories.
