It’s time to give the definitive word (mine at least) on High Fructose Corn Syrup (HFCS). Let’s make this quick and straightforward with 3 simple statements.
1) There is some debate, but generally speaking HFCS is no worse for our body than regular sugar.
2) HFCS is made from corn. Due to farm subsidies, we have lots and lots of corn.
3) Since we have so much corn, HFCS is cheap. Making it an ideal ingredient for Big Food processors.
Don’t be fooled. By marketing tactics touting a product made with “real sugar”. It doesn’t matter if it’s HFCS or cane sugar, if you consume too much you’ll gain weight and increase your risk for developing diabetes.
You’re now a little wiser. Spread the word.
