What type of popcorn oil should I use?

There are many different options of popping oil to use with your popcorn machine, but which one is best? The answer depends on a couple of different preferences but in general some popcorn oils are better for you than others. Here are a few things to consider…


Types of Fat: Let’s start with a quick nutrition review of the types of fats in our diet. There are 3 types of fats in most diets. Saturated Fats (bad fats), Polyunsaturated Fats (Omega Fatty Acids – good fats), and Monounsaturated fats (good fats). It is easy to think of all fats as being bad for you, but some fats, like the Polyunsaturated fats help promote brain health, which is why you see people taking fish oil supplements. The fats that your doctor is most worried about are the saturated fats as those are the ones that typically will raise your cholesterol levels and clog up your arteries. The amount of each type of fat in different types of oils determines how healthy that oil is for popping popcorn.


Coconut Oil: Coconut Oil historically has been the most popular oil for popping popcorn. It has a smooth buttery taste, is easy to use, and is inexpensive to purchase. The down side of coconut oil is that it is 92% saturated fat (bad fat). Realistically, this is not a problem if you treat popcorn as an occasional treat, but if you are adding it to your every day diet, coconut oil is not the healthiest choice even if it is one of the better tasting choices.


Butter:Butter is another oil with fantastic taste and is readily available at home. Unfortunately butter is 69% made up of saturated fats (bad fats) and are another option that can be detrimental to your health if you are adding significant amounts of butter to your daily diet.


Canola Oil Canola oil works great as a popcorn popping oil as it has a great flavor and is only 7% of the fat in canola oil is saturated fat. It boasts a whopping 93% good fat makeup. Canola oil has replaced coconut oil at many theaters as the healthy popcorn machine popping oil as many movie goers have become more health conscious over the years.


There are other types of oils that also work for popping popcorn, but all of them fall in the range set by coconut oil and canola oil when it comes to the amount of saturated and unsaturated fats that they each contain. Some oils, like peanut oil have allergy concerns that you would need to be aware of while others, like olive oil and cottonseed oil can be quite a bit more expensive while not providing the classic popcorn taste that most people expect from their popcorn machine.
