Don't believe the hype

High fructose corn syrup is making headlines again - this time because America's corn refiners want to change the name to "corn sugar" to make it sound more appealing. Don't fall for it! Of course corn refiners don't want to see a decline in corn syrup sales, but that doesn't make the product any healthier.  Stick with small amounts of the real thing instead!

Guess who paid for this ad? FUNNY!

  1. corn sugar? You've got to be kidding me. I am so tired of seeing the whole 'its got the same calories as sugar' and 'like sugar its fine in moderation' Yep it might have the same calories but HFCS does not appear in its final form naturally in nature. It is altered (chemically) to make it come out in its final form. You can get sugar from a sugar cane any old day.
