Popcorn is loaded with whole grain, fiber, and polyphenols, which are important antioxidants for the body. While fruits and veggies contain polyphenols too, those polyphenols are diluted in the 90% water that makes up most fruits and veggies. Polyphenols in popcorn, on the other hand, are only diluted in 4% water, which means each kernel is packed with some serious polyphenol punch.

To go the extra mile, Truthful Kernel’s organic, non-GMO popcorn comes from corn that is grown in the rich, pesticide-free fields of Pleasant Grove Farms in the Sacramento Valley. Pleasant Grove Farms is a certified organic wholesale grain and bean farm that has been family owned and operated since 1946. The farm’s land is certified organic (they don’t grow anything non-organic), and their popcorn is top quality.

As you can probably guess, grapeseed oil is extracted from the seeds of grapes through a cold process pressing method that allows the oil to retain its highly nutritious benefits. Grapeseed oil is non-hydrogenated and has no transfats or cholesterol.

Our popcorn is expertly popped in pure grapeseed oil from Sutter Buttes, a company located in Sutter, California, that is known for its high quality oils and flavored tapenades, jams, olive oils, and balsamic vinegars. Fruit for their oils is grown within a 30 mile radius of the Sutter Buttes, a Sacramento Valley volcanic formation created 300 million years ago, an area known for its abundance of fruit orchards. Sutter Buttes’ oil gives our popcorn the subtlest flavor and the most satisfying crunch.

Truthful Kernel uses butter from Straus Family Creamery Organic Butter, a farm located in the lush green hillsides of Marin County, California. Straus Family Creamery makes its butter in a 1950s butter churn with organic cream, and no coloring or additives are ever used. While making butter “the old fashioned way” takes longer, it results in a delicious, creamy butter that has little moisture and makes for delicious fluffy popcorn.

We use gluten free, non-GMO, kosher cheddar from Azure, the largest independent natural and organic food distributor in the country. Our cheddar blend is a perfect complement to Truthful Kernel’s fluffy, crunchy popcorn, and the popcorn grooves make awesome pockets for locking in that cheesy flavor.

Truthful Kernel uses delicious wildflower honey gathered from an extensive variety of wildflowers found in the rolling fields of Northern California. These wildflowers are beautiful and various, and the honey produced from the bees in this area is naturally sweet, beautifully golden, and delectable.

Our popcorn contains natural sea salt, which we love because it is made without adding any chemicals or preservatives. It contains more than 60 trace minerals and tastes delicious.
