Day 336- Nutrition Bite

Fructose comes from fruit is a misconception. Most of the fructose read on labels in the United States is chemically refined from corn. The reason people get confused is because fructose sounds like it's form fruit. Fruit consists of many sugars which are glucose, sucrose, dextrose, maltose, galactose, and fructose. Both fructose and high-fructose corn syrup have been aggressively promoted as natural sugars. After the many chemical steps  to make HFCS, you might as well say a candy bar is natural.

Sugar Preacher's Experience
After I read literature from the HCFS industry, I realized it is all about the money. The spend big bucks on advertising and marketing their products and the sad thing is we buy into it. We buy into their propaganda and we see the results. We see rampage of obesity, diabetes, and other health implications. When are we going to learn??
