Do you use products with high fructose corn syrup?

I'm just curious. I try to stay away from it, but it's in almost everything.

  • I cut HFCS out of my diet 3 months ago. I feel so much better now. Be careful of whole wheat bread....especially Nature's Own...they have HFCS

  • I try not to. I look at the ingredients of everything i buy. I want to kno what i am feeding my family-so 9/10 i dont buy products with it in it. i hate that commerical too! if a product has sugar, AND HFCS-i put it right back down onthe shelf. all that sugar isnt necessary.

  • I try not to. Once in a while I'm desperate for something that does have some in, but I've been pretty good about avoiding it.

  • We don't buy manufactured foods. We buy meat from a local meat packer, fruits, veggies, dairy, eggs, and baking staples at the store, and that's about it. I can't think of anything we have in our home with HFCS in it. I don't care how much money people save with coupons buying packaged foods, it's just not worth it to us. I do love Coca-Cola, but have that maybe twice a month now. I used to once a week. I also try to buy the more expensive Mexican glass bottles when I do because it is made with pure cane sugar instead of HFCS.
