Day 260- Nutrition Bite


Corn refiners welcome FDA clarification that high fructose corn syrup can be labeled natural. The president of the Corn Refiners Association states, "High fructose corn syrup contains no artificial or synthetic ingredients or color additives and meets FDA's requirements for the use of the term 'natural'. High fructose corn syrup like table sugar and honey is natural. It is made from corn--a natural grain product. "

Sugar Preacher's Experience
A friend of mine, who is a doctor, received a pamphlet published by the Corn Refiner's Association. He gave it to me to read, and I am not buying into this bogus. The Corn Refiner's Association is publishing pamphlets to protect their industry. It is all about the money. The high fructose corn syrup business is a major business. The HFCS industry is spending $30 million on an ad campaign, stating corn syrup has natural ingredients. Yes, my doctor friend along with millions of other Americans are targeted with this $30 million ad campaign!! Don't buy into the idea that HFCS is a healthy product! Tomorrow, I'll post a CBS investigation about companies that are funding this campaign.
