Unlike other grains, popcorn kernels have a hard moisture-sealed hull and a dense starchy filling. As they are heated, pressure builds inside the kernel until an explosive "pop" results and the starches gelatinize and puff. Popping results are sensitive to the rate at which the kernels are heated. If heated too quickly, hulls can rupture before the starches fully gelatinize, leading to partially popped kernels with hard centers. Heating too slowly can allow steam inside the kernel to leak out, leading to entirely unpopped kernels.
Native to North America, corn was first domesticated over 9,000 years ago. The practice of popping corn was originated by ancient Native American civilizations, with the earliest evidence of popcorn dating back to 3600 B.C.!
