Also known as popping corn, popcorn refers to a variety of corn that has exploded from the kernel and puffed up when heated. Popcorn originated with Native Americans. The explosion of the kernel is the result of a pressure buildup when the oil and moisture is heated inside of a strong and nonpourous shell.
