Speaking of High-Fructose Corn Syrup…

Other Beverage

It can’t be coincidence people, it must be DESTINY! Just yesterday I was riffing on high-fructose corn syrup on the blog, and today there is an epic story released by AdAge regarding high-fructose corn syrup and its perception.

Consumers are asking manufacturers to remove ingredients they believe are harmful, and high-fructose corn syrup is near the top of many a mother’s hit list. Some major manufacturers have responded by removing the offending syrup, and the Corn Refiners Association has staged a full-fledged media assault aimed at what it perceives to be ‘misinformation’ in the media

Enter fine beverage…

Some beverage companies are also promoting their lack of HFCS. PepsiCo launched ‘throwback’ versions of Pepsi and Mountain Dew, which are essentially HFCS-free formulations in retro cans. The products proved successful, leading the company to bring them back for another eight-week run, beginning Dec. 28. A third product, Pepsi Natural, launched this spring and is being positioned as a premium cola. Snapple, meanwhile, went a step further, revamping its entire line of premium juices and teas to eliminate HFCS.

Do you care about your HFCS intake?

    I really do. I think it is too sweet and takes away from the actual flavor of what I am eating or drinking. I’d much rather a naturally sweetened Jones Cola than . . . well something else. Besides, my doctor basically told me that the road to hell is paved with HFC.

    The old saying “to much of anything is bad for you” really applies here. Look at the ingredients on a wide variety of products next time your at the store, HFCS is in everything from cola to BBQ sauce. You really have to make an effort to avoid it.
