    Is buttered popcorn worse for you than white cheddar popcorn?

    I love white cheddar popcorn - but hate any buttered popcorn. Is there a difference in calories since it's cheese instead of butter?

    I don't think it would be any difference.  I love white cheddar popcorn myself but i don't think any difference in between the two

    I think you would have to look at the ingredients on the package.
    If you are popping the corn yourself and adding butter it would have a lot of saturated fat.... according to how much butter you use.

      If you are using a powdered cheese seasoning, it would be more likely to have some vegetable oil  ( Corn, Soybean, or Sunflower Oil), and some chemical additives for stabilization etc. like Disodium Phosphate.

    Normally, I think buttered would be more caloric, but it depends on the specific ingredients in the cheese flavoring.
