High fructose corn syrup, corn syrup, fructose: Poison by any other name
January 22, 2015
When chemicals added to processed foods earn a bad rep for causing disease and disability, one would hope the food manufacturers would remove them from their products or the FDA would protect the American people by banning them, but neither seems to be the case - not when big money is at stake. Instead the food manufacturers either launch dis-information campaigns claiming their additives are either healthy or benign, or they confuse and deceive the consumer by using a different name for the same additive. For example, according to The Truth in Labeling Campaign, MSG can be found in food under 50 different names.
With this history of deceit, it comes as no surprise to learn that we now have to look for high fructose corn syrup and aspartame under new names.
