Why is there HFCS in a can of kidney beans from Target???
OK, so I know this might get moved to food, but I'm hoping it stays here so more people see it. I am a label checker, for the most part. I know that food manufacturers are trying to sneak HFCS (High Fructose Corn Syrup) in everything and usually check stuff out. So I am making my healthy chili recipe, and I had dry navy beans and pintos that I boiled (I usually buy my beans in bulk and then boil them up because it is cheaper) and I decided to add a can of kidney beans that I picked up on my last shopping trip from Target. Low and behold, I glance on the back of the can and HFCS!!! Why???? Am I an idiot? Is there some preservative property that HFCS has to make it necessary to add it to plain beans? I rinsed the crap out of them and threw them in the pot.
I think somebody wants to make us FAT!!!!
From now on, I am checking labels of plain vegetables, beans, etc. that I purchase in the can, and make sure I am not getting duped.
