I can't believe the amount of high fructose corn syrup that is present in the products we ingest.
I'm saying "products that we ingest" instead of "food we eat" because I had to pick up a bottle of cough syrup, and listed on the ingredient label between "glycern" and "menthol" is high fructose corn syrup.
It's a real struggle shopping, trying to make smart informed choices, but not getting lost in the sea of listed ingredients. Virtually everything we eat contains high fructose corn syrup. The only things tht don't are organic or natural items that were created as a result of consumers wanting something different, something without man-modified food chemicals. I think everyone understands that soda and candy contain high fructose corn syrup, but how about the other things that nobody thinks of...look at the products in your kitchen, your refrigerator, your pantry: ketchup, baked beans, breads, cereals, salad dressings, fruit juices...the list goes on and on.
