Ricas Recetas con Arándano

Por Kiwilimón - Mayo 2012
Las bondades del arándano son muchas. Por ejemplo, se utiliza para combatir la diabetes, como antibiótico, antiinflamatorio, antidiarréico, para problemas de visión y en la prevención de ciertos tipos de cáncer. El pigmento que le confiere el color azul al fruto (la anthocianina), interviene en el metabolismo celular humano disminuyendo la acción de los radicales libres, asociados al envejecimiento, cáncer, enfermedades cardíacas y Alzheimer. Estas cualidades son apreciables en los mercados de alto poder adquisitivo, donde la decisión de compra está influenciada principalmente por factores no económicos. Por esta razón las campañas publicitarias destacan esta bondad del fruto entre sus propiedades nutritivas y benéficas para la salud.

Leer en españolPopcorn can be part of a well-balanced diet if you know how to prepare it since it contains important nutrients and offers a wide variety of health benefits. Popcorn is a special kind of corn that explodes when exposed to heat. This happens because the core of each kernel contains a small amount of water that expands when heated and makes the kernel pop.While it may not seem like so because it is a very popular snack, popcorn is a whole food, which makes it high in several nutrients and, according to different studies, there is a link between eating whole grains and health benefits like reduced inflammation and less risk of heart disease.A serving of 3.5 ounces of popcorn contains the next nutrients:Vitamin B1 (thiamine): 7% of the DRIVitamin B3 (niacin): 12% of the DRIVitamin B6 (pyridoxine): 8% of the DRIIron: 18% of the DRIMagnesium: 36% of the DRIPhosphorous: 36% of the DRIPotassium: 9% of the DRIZinc: 21% of the DRICopper: 13% of the DRIManganese: 56% of the DRIThe previous comes with a total of 387 calories, 0.4 ounces of protein, 2.7 ounces of carbohydrates, 0.1 ounces of fat, and 0.5 ounces of fiber, a high amount that makes this portion of popcorn one of the best sources of fiber in the world. There are many ways to make popcorn and perhaps the most popular version is the prepacked one that can be cooked in the microwave. However, most microwave bags are coated with a chemical substance called perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA), which has been linked to multiple health conditions.To make healthy popcorn, it is best to cook the kernels on the stove with only 3 tablespoons of oil, which can be either olive or coconut oil. This amount of oil will be enough to prepare half a cup of popcorn kernels and you will only need one teaspoon of salt for seasoning. If you want extra health benefits, you can sprinkle popcorn with nutritional yeast. Nutritional yeast has a nutty and cheesy flavor and contains several important nutrients including protein, fiber, vitamins B, and different minerals.Translated by Miranda Perea
