The High Fructose Corn Syrup Issue


The quality of our food supply continues to be a growing concern. With more and more consumers demanding transparency by food manufacturers, shopping for fresh foods over packaged, and starting to take a vested interest in their control over their own health, food labels are being scrutinized more than ever. One glaring inclusion in many food labels is high fructose corn syrup. This manufactured sweetener extends the shelf-life of foods and is cheaper to produce and use than sugar, making it a darling of processed food producers. Found in everything from soda to cough syrup, practicing moderation is difficult to do.
