A sweet problem: Princeton researchers find that high-fructose corn syrup prompts considerably more weight gain

Wow! I have to say, the more I learn about what's going in our food, the more I read labels and try to make as much as I can from scratch, home grown and local foods, etc.... AND NO MORE SODA!!!!!

This is also a good example of how not all calories are created equal... which is something that I need to keep telling myself when I try to fit junk food into my daily calories.

My fiance and I are trying to cut out all foods that contain HFCS. It is really difficult, because just about everything has it.

Another reason to eat clean.

So do you think, since everyone wants to stop obesity, that they will begin to outlaw hfcs? I even noticed that stuff was in my tomato sauce but it's EVERYWHERE. *dies*

My husband said he noticed that products are starting to show up with High Maltose Corn Syrup. I guess HFCS has a bad name so they seemed to have tried switching up cheap sweetener to a slightly different form.

It is disturbing, how many frankenfoods are being cooked up in food labs these days..all in the name of profit...and even subsidised by you and me, with tax dollars.

I love that term - frankenfoods! Great!

Daimere - I gave up prepared pasta sauces altogether. Chop up some tomatoes, add in green peppers, mushrooms (whatever you like) and simmer in a pan. Much yummier, lower in calories and no additives!!

I hate those commercials on TV about HFCS being "just like sugar." It's not. I could go on forever about the way these things work, but for now I will just say thanks for posting the link!!

Oh, you've seen those commercials too?! The ones with man and woman eating popsicles on a picnic blanket? They make me sick!!

I try very hard to make everything from scratch. I'm not at all perfect about it, but hopefully better than I was before. I still have to try my hand at my own yogurt.
