Popcorn is by far my favorite snack food. It’s easy to make, you can dress it up any way you want, and it’s chock full of gut-friendly fiber. But there are still some pitfalls lurking in the popping process: Stray too far from the rule book, and you might end up with burned corn or a sad cluster of unpopped kernels.

We think of onions as harmless root vegetables, but they’re actually clever bulbed bombs ready to defend themselves against all would-be consumers.

A team of food scientists from the National University of Singapore (NUS) has successfully formulated a recipe for making healthier bread by adding a natural plant pigment, called anthocyanin, extracted from black rice. This new bread option gets digested at a slower rate – hence improving blood glucose control – and is high in antioxidants, among other health benefits. This is the first study where anthocyanin extract has been fortified into a bread product, and the findings open up new possibilities of creating healthier, diabetic-friendly food products.
