Why is popped corn less calories than unpopped corn?

Or "fewer" calories for those who prefer proper English. Seriously- why is regular corn a disaster waiting to happen, but popcorn is not?

no kidding!

I have wondered the same exact thing!

In the bag of microwave popcorn, it's because the butter/seasonings/oil is clumped onto the unpopped corns, but once it pops, a lot of that gunk sticks to the sides of the bag, not to the corn.

not long ago, someone else asked this same question. i think the definitive answer was that a cup of unpopped corn is many more kernels than a cup of popped corn.

unpopped kernels

I believe it is because not all of the kernels pop, so they account for that in the popped calories. Assuming you don't eat the unpopped kernels!

Did you mean popped vs. unpopped popcorn, or popcorn vs. sweet corn?

unpopped popcorn is corn. Dried out, but corn none the less. "Sweet Corn" is corn. Pop corn, is corn. Just prepared different ways. I do find it amazing how people don't realise this. I had a friend fully aware that I'm allergic to corn ask me if I wanted some popcorn when we went to a movie. I responded by saying "Pop CORN- you wanna rethink that question?" She stared at me blankly until I said pop corn is still corn. And then the light went on.
