History[ edit ] Corn was first domesticated about 10, years ago in what is now Mexico.
In Mexico, for example, remnants of popcorn have been found that date to around BC. Popcorn's accessibility increased rapidly in the s with Charles Cretors ' invention of the popcorn maker.
Cretors, a Chicago candy store owner, created a number of steam powered machines for roasting nuts, and applied the technology to the corn kernels. By the turn of the century, Cretors had created and deployed street carts equipped with steam powered popcorn makers. Thus, while other businesses failed, the popcorn business thrived and became a source of income for many struggling farmers, including the Redenbacher family, namesake of the famous popcorn brand.
During World War IIsugar rations diminished candy production, and Americans compensated by eating three times as much popcorn as they had before.
Their minds eventually changed, however, and in a Midwestern theater owner named Glen W. Dickson installed popcorn machines in the lobbies of his theaters. The venture was a financial success, and the trend soon spread.
InGeneral Mills received the first patent for a microwave popcorn bag, with popcorn consumption seeing a sharp increase by tens of thousands of pounds in the years following.
Unlike most other grains, the outer hull of the popcorn kernel is both strong and impervious to moisture and the starch inside consists almost entirely of a hard type. Under these conditions, the starch inside the kernel gelatinizessoftens, and becomes pliable. The internal pressure of the entrapped steam continues to increase until the breaking point of the hull is reached: The hull thereupon ruptures rapidly and explodes, causing a sudden drop in pressure inside the kernel and a corresponding rapid expansion of the steam, which expands the starch and proteins of the endosperm into airy foam.
As the foam rapidly cools, the starch and protein polymers set into the familiar crispy puff. Though the kernels of some wild types will pop, the cultivated strain is Zea mays everta, which is a special kind of flint corn.

Popcorn on the cob before shelling Cooking methods[ edit ] An in-home hot-air popcorn maker Popcorn can be cooked with butter or oil. Although small quantities can be popped in a stove-top kettle or pot in a home kitchen, commercial sale of freshly popped popcorn employs specially designed popcorn machines, which were invented in Chicago, Illinoisby Charles Cretors in Cretors successfully introduced his invention at the Columbian Exposition in At this same world's fair, F.
Rueckheim introduced a molasses -flavored "Candied Popcorn," the first caramel corn ; his brother, Louis Ruekheim, slightly altered the recipe and introduced it as Cracker Jack popcorn in Previously, vendors popped corn by holding a wire basket over an open flame.
At best, the result was a hot, dry, unevenly cooked snack. Cretors's machine popped corn in a mixture of one-third clarified buttertwo-thirds lardand salt. A fire under a boiler created steam that drove a small engine; that engine drove the gears, shaft, and agitator that stirred the corn and powered a small automated clown puppet-like figure, "the Toasty Roasty Man," an attention attracting amusement intended to drum up business.Honey Nut Cheerios is announcing the launch of a new program – Good Rewards!
