Popped sorghum - it's the new super food brought to you in a crunchy, fluffy, super healthy and totally delicious snack.

When popped, sorghum looks and tastes just like miniature premium popcorn, only slightly nuttier and with an awesome crunch.

It's low in calories and fat, gluten free, and best of all, it has no hulls to get stuck in your teeth!

I have become aware of sorghum on Haley Pomroy's website who, for quite some time now, has been disseminating negative info on corn. I have pulled as much as reasonably possible from my diet, but I was really missing the crunch of popcorn...Until I discovered sorghum!! I am still learning how to pop it right in the microwave (I am considering in investing in a popper just to make my life easier), and so far it's a a fine line between too many unpopped kernels and ones that have burned. However, the taste is amazing, it tastes just like pop corn, slightly better. And the unpopped kernels will not damage your dental work-- you can eat them and they are just as good. Plus the thought of a very nutrient dense "popcorn" makes up for any inconvenience at the time. I LOVE IT CUSTOMER FOR LIFE!!!

This popcorn tastes exactly the same as regular popcorn. Using 1/8 cup is perfect for the air popper. But I have to tell you the truth as to why we purchased the sorghum to begin with....our dog is allergic to corn and loves popcorn. In order to allow her to continue enjoying her favorite treat, we searched for a tasty and inexpensive alternative....and something we can all enjoy together. The sorghum is the perfect solution.

With our recent allergy diagnosis, we were wondering how to find a replacement for our beloved popcorn. Thank you for this product. It is awesome and taste just like popcorn, plus you can eat the ones that don't pop without breaking your teeth.

It's a really neat, different alternative to regular popcorn. It pops really teenzy compared to popcorn but is very tasty. The unpopped kernels also taste really good and don't break your teeth to chew. Don't let the small size fool you, it may not make a huge bowl but its quite filling and satisfying.

Really enjoyed this! The kernels are really flavorful, and the unpopped ones don't break your teeth, they are just crunchy and toasty. Sorghum reminds me of a "whole grain" popcorn.

Bought it as a fun novelty thing to do with the kids and it turned out great. Tastes exactly like regular popcorn but without the hulls. When popped it is very tiny but it will still fill you up. I had the best flavor when using coconut oil instead of canola.

I bought this for my husband who is not supposed to have popcorn due to diverticulitis. He has had no problems with this product and we love it. I think I like it better than popcorn.

Great product! It would have been nice to receive extra information about preparing the kernels. Site should include a 'new to this product' option and ship instructions along with the goods! :-)

Rating No hulls--yay!
To me, it tastes the same as corn popcorn. I hadn't realized how much the hulls bug me (and my gums) until I didn't have to deal with 'em. First thing the kids said was "It's miniature popcorn!" They get a kick out of the stovetop method, which goes very fast (smaller kernel = quicker to heat?). It's a great, quick, healthy snack.

I LOVE this product. My son is allergic to corn so this has turned out to be a great substitute. I wasn't sure he'd go for it, but once I told him it was "baby" popcorn he was like...oh, ok. Then he ate it. He's asked for it every day since.

I popped these grains as directed and it took me a few tries to get a good batch. Since then, I've tried using a different pot with sunflower oil. I got much better results. I'd say about 75%+ more popped grains.

The customer service is fantastic! I love it when companies take the time personally to answer any questions I have. There are several different sites I could of purchased from but since the customer service was so great here I didn't want to go anywhere else.

Great product, meets our needs well and I would recommend!

This popcorn is so awesome!!! Your company is excellent!!! Superfast shipping!!! For anyone purchasing for the first time, follow the instructions. Using less, 1/8 - 1/4 cup is as much as you want to pop at a time. The best thing, other than it is hulless, is the the 'old maids' are as good as the popcorn itself!!! An extra bonus, you won't break a tooth eating it!!! Love this product!!!

Rating Ok, not great
This popcorn actually has very good flavor. The only problem is that it's so small, it's almost like eating granola or some other hearty grain. We probably won't buy it again, but it was still worth the try.

Sorghum Foods: New Health Benefits from An Ancient Grain

Chung, Okkyung
Bean, Scott
Park, Seok Ho

Submitted to: Journal of Food Science
Publication Type: Peer Reviewed Journal
Publication Acceptance Date: September 15, 2004
Publication Date: October 15, 2004
Citation: Chung, O.K., Bean, S.R., and Park, S.H. 2005. Sorghum foods: New health benefits from an ancient grain. Food Science Journal (Chinese) 25:431-437.

Interpretive Summary: Sorghum is an ancient, drought resistant cereal grain grown around the world. In the U.S., sorghum ranks third between wheat and maize in production. Sorghum is grown primarily from southern Nebraska to Texas, with Kansas being the number one sorghum producing state. While, sorghum has traditionally been used as animal feed in the U.S., ~40% of worldwide production is used for human consumption.

Recent research has shown that sorghum may have several components that could impact human health. Some sorghum lines, those containing a pigmented testa, are high in anti-oxidants; some lines higher even than blueberries. In addition, the wax surrounding the sorghum grain contains compounds, policosanols, that may have an impact on human cardiac health. Research is showing that these compounds can lower cholesterol. In addition to these benefits, sorghum is also a gluten free food and is therefore safe for persons with celiac disease. This paper reviews these potential health benefits of sorghum and their potential for increasing utilization of sorghum.

Technical Abstract: Sorghum is an ancient grain first domesticated in Africa and spread to other parts of the world around 3000 B.C. Sorghum is a drought-resistant cereal grain, often growing in semi-arid conditions where other cereal grains cannot. World sorghum production was 54.5 million metric tons (mmt) in 2002. Annually the U.S. produces 13-15 mmt, of which 30-50% is exported. While sorghum has traditionally been used primarily as animal feed in western countries, nearly 40% of the world sorghum production is used for human food in Africa, India, etc.

In the U.S., white food-grade hybrids are being used for the production of wheat-free foods for persons with celiac disease, who cannot consume wheat or related cereal grains such as rye and barley due to intolerance to gluten proteins. They provide relatively bland, white flour that can be used to produce numerous wheat-free food products. As sorghum lacks gluten, sorghum flour cannot produce visco-elastic dough, thus, a batter-type formulation is used to produce sorghum products including bread, waffles, noodles, and pizza crust, which are typically made from wheat. Research has shown that some sorghum lines produce higher quality foods, thus sorghum may be bred for improved product quality.

Recent research also shows that this ancient grain may have unique health benefits, due to high anti-oxidant levels related to their polyphenolic compound and sorghum wax, containing policosanols, which may be important in cardiac health. A challenge for people with celiac disease is supplying steady healthy staple foods, especially in the western world where wheat products are a major staple food.

Therefore, the ancient grain sorghum has drawn new interest and has promise as an important cereal grain in the 21st century due to:
(a) potential staple foods for people with celiac disease;
(b) high anti-oxidants and wax levels for nutritional and health claims; and
(c) the drought resistant nature of sorghum and good production with limited water due to the anticipated exponential growth of the human population in the 2030's.

The Sorghum popping method* is similar to our “Best Home Popping Method” for popcorn. Add the oil and a few kernels (grains) to your popper and heat at medium-high. When those first grains pop, you can add the rest. Now turn the heat down to medium. Popping sorghum is a more delicate process than popping popcorn. (You may have to refine these steps for your stove and popper.) In moments, the popping will begin!

About 60% of the grains will pop.

We recommend popping ¼ to ½ Cup at a time using the following proportions:
  • ¼ cup Sorghum w/ 2 teaspoons oil; or
  • ½ cup Sorghum w/1 tablespoon oil.
  • Just like popcorn, you can add salt or Flavacol butter flavored salt to the popper with the grains.
  • Sift popped sorghum through the Sorghum Sifter to remove any un-popped grains
Store your Sorghum in an airtight container in a cool dark place. NEVER put sorghum grains in the refrigerator or freezer.

*We do not recommend attempting to pop Sorghum in a hot air popper. Trust us. You REALLY don’t want to do it. Check out our NEW Hot Air Popper for Popping Sorghum!
