This AP article reports that FDA labeling director Barbara Schneeman has expressed (in writing) concern over two of the corn industry’s websites using “corn sugar” and “high fructose corn syrup” interchangably. The name change has not yet received regulatory approval.

  1. Sounds like the Food Industry marketing folks had a meeting that began with the question: How can we fool them all again today? And someone responded, “Lets call HFCS some other innocent sounding name, and get the FDA to endorse it. Someone else suggested “Corn Sugar,” and they all cheered.
    This is an example of the increasing degradation of our democracy…..where private industry uses a government agency to deceive and mislead its citizens.
    Do we have much moral authority left to be proud of?

    The people who synthesize high fructose corn syrup do not care what the FDA says–or even care about FDA warnings. They will do what they want to keep Americans consuming high fructose corn syrup (whatever they choose to call it). Frankencorn sugar manufacturers haved snubbed the government right up front by ignoring the laws–and making up their own minds to call it “corn sugar” even before approval.

    Perhaps it is besty to avoid anything that sounds like corn on the label–like corn sugar, corn syrup, high fructose corn syrup, fructose/glucose sugar, dextrose, and all the other corn sugars–most derived from genetically altered corn–to drive off the pests. If the corn is avoided by pests–or kills pests that eat it–then humans should not eat it either. Added sugars of any kind are not healthy–but sugar from corn is especially suspect.

    Try giving up high fructose corn syrup and corn syrup (and any kind of corn surgar) for about two months, and experience how much better you feel and how much energy you have. By giving it up, you will discover for sure how bad this synthetically processed ingredient is for your body and health.

    Don’t wait for rat experiments–jjust take the plunge and try it for yourself. It’s like being released from an addictive slavery. Your health is worth it. We, as Americans, must love our children enough to feed them real food. Good health to all.

      Read our book Gaining Weight? High Fructose Corrn Syrup and Obesity. Balboa Press. We have included a lot of sientific data and the history of how HFCS has made so many people in the US fat. It’s a good book for mothers whose doctors have told them that their child must lose weight or risk getting Metabolic Syndrome.
