GMO means “Genetically Modified Organism” which is a novel organism created by scientists when they genetically modify or engineer food plants.
In genetic modification (or engineering) of food plants, scientists remove one or more genes from the DNA of another organism, such as a bacterium, virus, or animal, and “recombine” them into the DNA of the plant they want to alter. By adding these new genes, genetic engineers hope the plant will express the traits associated with the genes. For example, genetic engineers have transferred genes from a bacterium known as “Bacillus thuringiensis” or “Bt” into the DNA of corn. Bt genes express a protein that kills insects, and transferring the genes allows the corn to produce its own pesticide.
Excerpt from (The Organic & Non-GMO Report)
The term hulless popcorn can often mislead consumers into thinking that they are purchasing popcorn that contains absolutely no hulls. Every popcorn kernel has a hull, known as the seed coat, which is responsible for trapping the moisture and pressure inside the kernel during the heating process, resulting in the POP. The term hulless popcorn refers to varieties of popcorn that are significantly smaller in size. During the popping process, these smaller more fragile hulls, disintegrate into tiny pieces. These pieces are small enough that they are no longer an irritation, resulting in a bowl of white, fluffy, tender hulless popcorn.
At Poppington’s Popcorn, we have several varieties that have a colored kernel, such as Blue, Red, and Rainbow to name a few. While they have a unique kernel color, this does not mean they retain this color once popped. For popcorn to have color once popped, that would require a dye. We do not use dye on our popcorn, so it will still have either a white or yellow hue.
For long-term storage, we would recommend keeping the popcorn in a resealable plastic or glass container in a cool dry place. Many here locally keep their popcorn in large glass mason-style jars, with the popcorn remaining fresh for over 4 years in some cases. Popcorn pops best with moisture levels being between 12% - 14%. Any intense heat or high humidity can drastically shorten the shelf life of popcorn, as with all grains. Freezing the popcorn will work as well, as long as there is no compromise in regards to the moisture.
