 Over half the bottled salad dressings on the market have high fructose corn syrup as a main, if not THE main ingredient.

Whatever happened to Italian dressing being, vinegar, oil, sprinkle of salt, pepper and sugar?

And since when has ranch not been some mayo, sour cream, onion & garlic powder?

I buy some bottled salad dressings, but I prefer to get the all natural ones at Whole Foods.

Making your own (especially Italian) is really easy.

Yeah, I look pretty closely at the ingredients and they'll turn me on or off to a dressing. BBQ sauce is the same way, mostly hfc.

But, I usually buy, sometimes I make it.

I'm too lazy to make my own most of the time but home made ranch tastes so much better than the bottled stuff. Bottled ranch tastes nothing like true ranch dressing.

Why does everyone hate high fructose corn syrup so much? To the point that the corn council has to make commercials defending it.
