Making spices stick to popcorn w/o saturates
I have been trying different methods to make spices stick to popcorn without butter, oil or any other liquids that contain saturated fats.
My aim is to use a spray to release a diluted solution which has a grounded spice mixed into it such as cumin - but note that I haven't used a spray yet to try this as had problems getting an appropriate one so I'm not sure how well it'll work.
However, let's assume the spray works, now I have the problem of what liquid to use. At first I thought water on it's own would be enough but then I thought that this might lead the pop corn to becoming more wet, with less of a sticky action.
I haven't yet tried this as I said because I need to get a spray, nonetheless I would appreciate suggestions about ways to spray spices on popcorn. The obvious method of just sprinkling it on is that it ends at the bottom.
Much appreciated as it's been a real head scratcher for me for many weeks now and I'm very fond of popped corn. In particular, are there any molecular ingredients that can be added to a water solution to increase stickiness such as lecithin, except this ingredient if I understand correctly leads to the opposite effect of non-stick.
