Popped vs. Unpopped...Popcorn.

A reader to the Washington Post writes in after noticing that the Nutritional Label on Popcorn lists out information for the corn both popped and unpopped. There is a difference. She wants to know why.

Robert L Wolke answers her question and a couple others, including a reader who believes there is antifreeze and brake fluid in her child's Alpa Bits cereal.

Interesting chemistry lessons about food.
