Things are changing for corn syrup. Hunt's and Snapple are just 2 of the companies who have decided to listen to consumers' wants and use sugar instead of corn syrup. More and more companies are starting to jump on the no corn syrup band wagon and it is showing up in the use of corn syrup dropping 11% . The use of sugar has risen approx. 7%.

thank God... soda pop with this corn syrup crap, is just garbage.. I used to love Coke, until they added the corn syrup.. lot’s of altnertives, I realize that, but still, I’d like to see the move back to Cane Sugar.
For a while, Pepsi has "throwback" Pepsi and Mt. Dew sweetened with sugar. I showed my appreciation by purchasing this product. Apparently, it was for a limited time only so now I'm back to drinking Hansen's.
GOOD I hope that the Corn Mafia in my home state of Iowa gets cut off. The NEXT thing that I hope dies is Corn Ethonal...WHAT A CROCK!
One of my very favorite things is Karo corn syrup.
but, as a sweetener in drinks and foods, I do prefer sugar.
But Pepsi keeps coming out with the Throwbacks and they have real sugar. You gotta watch for when they come out and stock up (if you really want a Pepsi). Coke also does real sugar at Passover and you can find those at that time - they have a different color cap. You have to live where there are Jews though. I’ve tried to find those Cokes in areas where there are no Jews and you can’t. Thank God I live near Jewish people (of course, I like them even without the Kosher coke!)
Excellent! Maybe sugar will catch on with more companies!
I try to avoid sweets, but HFCS is the worst. The problem I’ve found is that it is in everything! I don’t need any sweetener in my yogurt, the fruit does that for me. HFCS also lengthens shelf life. I also don’t want to eat anything with a ten year shelf life, that can’t be good for me either.
It is best to cut out all refined sugar, but especially High Fructose Corn Syrup. This is a 90 minute video, but well worth the time.
Soda pop made with sugar is worth drinking - sometimes the stuff can be bought at COSTCO... buy it if you used to like soda...
Wow. I didn’t know that. Thanks!
For fuel uses, sure. But there's nothing wrong with batch made sour mash ethanol for 'medicinal' use. ;)
A bit off topic:
When will Snapple switch over to plastic bottles as opposed to glass? There are broken Snapple bottles everywhere. Dogs and kids, especially, can easily cut themselves on the glass shards. Just about every beverage company nowadays uses plastic.
I wonder what kind of mileage I’d get if I wasn’t using ethanol. Wonder how much the ethanol part of the gallon is really costing me.
Regular sugar, sucrose, is composed of fructose and glucose. High fructose corn syrup is composed of fructose and glucose. What’s the beef?
Rented “Food, Inc.” the other evening. I know it has a liberal bias, but if even half of it’s true, HFCS and Monsanto are two of the true evils in the world.
Ethanol has about 2/3 the energy per unit volume that gasoline has, so 10% ethanol will drop your mileage by about 3%.
Corn syrup isn’t kosher for passover? Why not?
Did they clear this with Michelle?
