No HFCS Breakfast!

No High-Fructose Corn Syrup in My Breakfast, Please! I found several new breakfast foods I like for the No-High Fructose Corn Syrup List! It's afternoon now, so I think we'll have breakfast for dinner! Kids always love that. Heck, grown-ups love it too, I think.

So now, without further ado, here are the list additions for today: Krusteaz Light & Fluffy Chocolate Chip Complete Pancake Mix Boca Burgers Breakfast Links Life Cereal Maple & Brown Sugar Wild Harvest Natural Cereals - All Eggo Frozen Waffles If you have a favorite, … [Read more...]

5 New Condiments with No High-Fructose Corn Syrup

Condiments With No High-Fructose Corn Syrup

Today's update contains condiments with no high-fructose corn syrup! Condiments seem to be one of the hardest product areas to find hfcs-free versions.  Some of these were suggestions by visitors and some were items I came across while doing my own surfing. I did do my own research though, and have included the links so you can check out the ingredients for yourself. Here are today's additions: Duke's Mayonnaise Garland Jack's Barbecue Sauces Weber Barbecue Sauces Woeber Mustards Doux South Pickles Some of these are harder to find than others, but I think they are all worth seeking out. Also, if you look at the simplicity of most of the ingredients, it seems like most of these would be easy to make at home.  I've tried … [Read more...]

3 New Items Added to the No High-Fructose Corn Syrup List

Heinz Simply Ketchup

Here are a few additions to the No High-Fructose Corn Syrup List.   My favorite addition is Simply Heinz ketchup. I like to make my own ketchup sometimes, but it's nice to know I can just pick up a bottle in a pinch. It seems really natural and my family loves it.  It also says on the bottle it is Gluten-Free, Kosher, and  Pareve. The other two additions are beverages: Jarritos soda pop and Powerade (contains artificial sweeteners). One of my biggest irritations with HFCS being in almost everything, is how bad it is when it comes to barbecue sauce.  There really are very few choices when it comes to finding barbecue sauce with no high-fructose corn syrup in it. That's why I especially like the Simply Heinz ketchup. You can use it … [Read more...]

Bull’s Eye Original Barbecue Sauce Now Contains HFCS

Barbecue Sauce

Well, since this is a blog about listing products that do NOT contain high-fructose corn syrup, I usually don't post about products that do unless they stand out for some reason. In this case, a product I show-cased as proudly boasting, "No High-Fructose Corn Syrup" on its label has, sadly reverted to using HFCS. That product is Bull's Eye Original Barbecue Sauce. I noticed that the "No High-Fructose Corn Syrup" disappeared off the label at some point recently. Then I started getting comments giving me a heads-up that it now does contain high-fructose corn syrup. Sure enough, it now does. Big step backwards! It's thing's like this that sent me on a quest to learn to make things completely from scratch as an alternative to relying … [Read more...]

New Way to Find Products with No High-Fructose Corn Syrup

Find FoodsWith No High Fructose Corn Syrup

Check out this new way to find products with no high-fructose corn syrup! If you live in an area where you can receive grocery deliver from Amazon Fresh, there is a great new way to find food products with no high-fructose corn syrup! I discovered this completely by accident. I was trying out their service and noticed that I coudl "filter" my searches. I decided just to see - could it be possible? Yes! There was a filter for no high-fructose corn syrup! Woo-hoo! I hope more online ordering at other grocers will follow their lead. I can't image the CRA is real happy about this, but what can they do? At any rate, *I* am happy. It's hard enough to find food products these days with no high-fructose corn syrup. I'm just … [Read more...]

FDA Rejects Ludicrous Bid to Rename High-Fructose Corn Syrup as ‘Corn Sugar’

FDA Rejects 'Corn Sugar' as new name for High-Fructose Corn Syrup

FDA Says High-Fructose Corn Syrup Can Not be Labeled as 'Corn Sugar' The Corn Refiners Association has outdone itself with silliness (which isn't easy to do after those laughable commercials they come out with a few years ago). They petitioned the FDA to be allowed to label HFCS as 'corn sugar'. I wonder if the the rep from the FDA had to suppress laughter while they told the CRA, 'um, of course you may not'. (See High Fructose Corn Syrup: FDA Rejects 'Corn Sugar' As New Name The FDA defines sugar as “solid, dried and crystallized." Therefore a syrup can't be called sugar. You would think they would have researched the finer points over there at the CRA, but they're not building the best track record when it comes to making good … [Read more...]

Root Beer With No High-Fructose Corn Syrup – Updated

Dads Root Beer With No High Fructose Corn Syrup

UPDATE! A reader has brought to my attention (and I confirmed this on their web site) that Dad's Root Beer has reverted to using high-fructose corn syrup, unfortunately. So I will be crossing them off the list right now. Dad's Root Beer With No High-Fructose Corn Syrup I know I just made a post about root beer with no high-fructose corn syrup, but I just tried this and it is the BEST root beer I've tasted in a long time! I'm not sure if it's widely available. My local grocery store was selling them individually for a dollar each, with no multi-pack option available. $1 each sounds like a lot and it kind of is. But it's made with real cane sugar, which is so much better tasting than HFCS. And as an occasional treat, why not? I drink … [Read more...]
