Trans-unsaturated fatty acids, commonly referred to as trans fats or trans fatty acids, are a type of industrially produced vegetable fat that was introduced into the food system in the 1950's. There are not generally found in nature, but are artifically created to provide a cheap stable source of fat for the commercial food industry. They are used in many packaged products, including margarine, baked goods, and microwave popcorn.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has determined that trans fats are 'not generally recognized as safe', and has banned their use in foods. However, food manufacturers have until 2018 to remove all trans fats from their products, meaning that most microwave popcorn bags may still contain high levels of trans fats as well as hydrogenated oils and chemical flavorings and preservatives.
One company is offering a solution to this problem for people who want to eliminate trans fats from their diets and still enjoy microwave popcorn - the Microwave Popcorn Popper from Cestari Kitchen.
Susan MacDowell from Cestari Kitchen says: "We now know that trans fats are bad for us. Thus, if we want to be healthy we need to avoid those microwave popcorn bags. This does not mean, however, that we can no longer enjoy the taste of microwave popcorn. Our microwave popcorn maker quickly makes tasty popcorn without the unhealthy fats and additives."
The Cestari Kitchen microwave popcorn popper enables people to turn a quarter cup of regular kernels into light and fluffy, tasty popcorn without the need for artificial additives or chemicals. It takes just two and a half minutes to complete popping the kernels. There is no need to preheat the popper, or engage in any other special preparation. It's simple to use, easy to clean, and folds for storage. Furthermore, it has been designed to provide even heating so that more kernels are popped.
Consumers are pleased that they have an alternative to commercial popcorn bags. Some of the comments received include:
*"Not crazy about mcrowave commercial bagged popcorn because of the funny aftertaste. Glad this worked perfect" (Customer, May 2016)
*"I do feel better about it versus the microwave popcorn bags... I can control the ingredients." (Brett, May 2016)
*"We really enjoy this popper. It is a much healthier alternative to prepackaged microwave popcorn." (Robert, April 2016)
*"I also really like how you control how much oil. Most bag popcorns have too much oil and all "the gross stiff" as my kids say." (Mako, November 2015)
The Cestari Kitchen Microwave Popcorn Maker is 100% food grade FDA approved silicone and BPA free. It's available currently on Amazon.
