does it make you feel all warm and fuzzy inside?

Does changing the name of high fructose corn syrup to "corn sugar" make you feel all warm and fuzzy inside? Does it make you less cautious to feed it to you child?

  • Nope. If anything I'm more outraged that they're attempting to make it all 'warm and fuzzy' feeling. I have been warning everyone I know that HFCS will now be called "corn sugar".

    And my outrage really isn't about how it's made or any of that, it's because of all those commercials about "it's fine in moderation" - well how the heck are you suppose to consume it "in moderation" when it is in just about EVERYTHING!?! Of course I am also upset about all the other lies about it but the 'in moderation' really pushed me over the edge.

  • NO! LOL.
    I read about that and there wll be no "corn sugar" in anything I buy, They will be able to fool millions of people tho. In fact,they already have people fooled. Its obvious when we see the hugely obese families trekking around town and at the Mall. It is just sad,isn't it?

  • WEll...check your labels.For instance, canned tomato sauce has it. Bread has high fructose corn syrup. EVen ice cream doese. Unless you bake your bread and make your own sauces, salad dressings, cereal,etc. there might be High Fructose corn syrup...or Corn Sugar in all of it.

  • we can't eat much processed foods because of my son's food allergies so it isn't an issue for us. everything we make is from scratch
