What Happens When You Nuke Yer Food

Today I was bored enough to read the nutritional information on a box of Orville Redenbacher microwave popcorn. (I prefer popping my own in a large pan myself.) I thought it odd that they list the nutritional info for an unpopped bag. Who eats unpopped microwave popcorn? And is the loss of potassium, sodium, carbs and fiber due to microwaving?
Yep, that's how bored I was today.

But did you pop it? Maybe the change in composition has more to do with steam from popping as opposed to Microwave. Were you bored enough to compare it to the label on traditional bottle?

I wasn't. But I did now. The traditional popcorn makes no mention of unpopped nutritional information.
