JUPITER, FL, Feb 03 (MARKET WIRE) --
Healthient, Inc. (OTCBB: SNAX) introduced SnackHealthy Light-Natural
microwave popcorn, its newest product in a growing line of "better for
you" snacks. Warm, delicious, and a good source of fiber, SnackHealthy
Light-Natural mini-bags are the perfect portion control popcorn. This
light, crispy white popcorn is loaded with crunch and flavor. With zero
fat and just 110 calories per serving, health conscious consumers can
enjoy delicious guilt-free snacking.
New research indicates that a daily snack of fat-free popcorn can help
dieters maintain reduced-calorie eating plans while still feeling full
and satisfied. While any reduced-calorie diet can lead to weight loss,
the biggest key for sustaining weight loss momentum is satisfaction with
the eating program. The study showed that even after eating popcorn daily
for 12 weeks, people were highly satisfied with it and attributed part of
their dieting success to the snack.
The simple act of seeing the large amount of popcorn helped study
participants maintain their weight loss programs without feeling like
they were on a restrictive diet. Participants reported healthier snacking
habits and 73% said that snacking on popcorn helped them feel more
emotionally satisfied than their usual snacks.
Katherine West, CEO of Healthient, commented, "Microwave popcorn has been
one of America's favorite snacks for years because it is delicious and
satisfying. Our popcorn has all of the best nutrition benefits of whole
grain, zero trans-fat, and no added diacetyl flavoring," she added.
Diacetyl gives popcorn its butter taste. The US National Institute for
Occupational Safety and Health has long advised that when used as an
artificial butter flavoring one should avoid inhaling it over a long
period. Bronchiolitis obliterans, often termed "popcorn worker's lung,"
an uncommon and serious lung disease, has been found in workers of
several factories that produce artificial butter flavorings.
