    According to the corn farmers....

    Now I'm from Georgia with family from North Carolina that has farmed generations so I'm all for the farmers getting what they deserve but this is ridiculous. I will simply post this article and let you decide. Let me know what you think!

    High Fructose Corn Syrup Provides Many Consumer Benefits

    High fructose corn syrup often plays a key role in the integrity of food and beverage
    products that has little to do with sweetening.

    Here are some examples in popular products:


    Baked goods

    In baked goods, high fructose corn syrup:

    • gives a pleasing brown crust to breads and cakes;
    • contributes fermentable sugars to yeast-raised products;
    • reduces sugar crystallization during baking for soft-moist textures; and
    • enhances flavors of fruit fillings.


    In yogurt, high fructose corn syrup:

    • provides fermentable sugars;
    • enhances fruit and spice flavors;
    • controls moisture to prevent separation; and
    • regulates tartness.

    Spaghetti sauces, ketchup, and condiments

    In spaghetti sauces, ketchup, and condiments, high fructose corn syrup:

    • enhances flavor and balance – replaces the “pinch of table sugar" grandma added to enhance spice flavors; and
    • balances the variable tartness of tomatoes.


    In beverages, high fructose corn syrup:

    • provides greater stability in acidic carbonated sodas than sucrose; and
    • flavors remain consistent and stable over the entire shelf- life of the product.
    granola bar

    Granola, breakfast and energy bars

    In granola, breakfast and energy bars, high fructose corn syrup:

    • enhances moisture control, retards spoilage, and extends product freshness;
    • provides soft texture; and
    • enhances spice and fruit flavors.
    frozen fruit

    Canned and frozen fruits

    In canned and frozen fruits, high fructose corn syrup:

    • protects the firm texture of canned fruits;
    • reduces freezer burn in frozen fruits; and
    • enhances fruit flavors.

    Frozen beverage concentrates

    In frozen beverage concentrates, high fructose corn syrup:

    • has a lower freezing point, so frozen beverage concentrates have the added convenience of being pourable straight from the freezer and easier for consumers to thaw and mix with water.
