New Way to Find Products with 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 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

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...]

Root Beer With No HFCS ~ Trader Joe’s Vintage Root Beer Review

Traders Joe's Vintage Root Beer has no high-fructose corn syrup and it is awesome! I saw it in the store the other day and had to try it. Not only is it sweetened with cane sugar instead of HFCS, the other ingredients are actually recognizable and high-quality as well! It is *so* refreshing to look at an ingredients list and see that the makers of the product actually thought, 'what ingredients can we combine to make this a truly tasty, quality, satisfying product'? Instead of looking at a label and it seeming like they were thinking 'what chemicals can we combine, that are cheap as possible, that will kind of make this taste ok, and how can we disguise some of the more insidious ones'? Actual pride in the product you manufacture? … [Read more...]

Why Does Soup Have High-Fructose Corn Syrup In It?

Many soup recipes call for just a touch of sugar, especially if they contain tomatoes, so it's not wholly untoward to add some. But to add high-fructose corn syrup? Sugar crystals help neutralize the acidity of tomatoes, so it is helpful to add some to tomato soups and soups which contain tomatoes. But high-fructose corn syrup is simply sweet - thus causing some soups to contain both HFCS *and* sugar. So if sugar is the optimal ingredient, why does soup have high-fructose corn syrup in it? My guess as to why they also add HFCS is because, in addition to being a sweetener, it has a thickening effect. So a soup can be "thick and creamy" - which is usually an effect of slow-cooking for many hours - without actually having been cooked … [Read more...]

Oreos vs. Faux-reos | Alternative Recipe

Today I was listing to an interview with Greg Atkinson. He said he has a great recipe for something called a "Faux-reo" - an alternative to store-bought Oreos. In the interview, he said that for some reason, you can eat a bunch of Oreos and for some reason just not feel satisfied. But if you eat just a couple of Faux-reos, it's very satisfying, and you don't need to keep eating (I'm paraphrasing, but that is basically what he said). I found that interesting, because one of the things I've heard about HFCS is that it inhibits satiety (the body's ability to feel full once it's had enough to eat). So I came home and looked it up - sure enough, Oreos contain high-fructose corn syrup. Faux-reos do not! So without further ado, here is … [Read more...]
