High Fructose Corn Syrup Now to be Labeled as Fructose or HFCS-90

Home » Blog Posts » High Fructose Corn Syrup Now to be Labeled as Fructose or HFCS-90

The Corn Refiners Association has found a new and sneaky way of getting high fructose corn syrup into your foods without you knowing it! The mind boggling thing being that this new “Fructose” actaully contains about TWO times the amount of pure fructose as the original high fructose corn syrup. The high concentration will inject this sugar into your blood stream faster causing more dramatic sugar spikes and crashes.

(NaturalNews) The Corn Refiners Association is now labeling high
fructose corn syrup as fructose. Packing on products such as General
Mills Vanilla Chex cereal now states the product contains no high
fructose corn syrup, while the ingredients list contains the simple
word, “fructose.” This fructose is actually a manufactured sugar called
HFCS-90, and is made up of 90% pure fructose. High fructose corn syrup,
or HFCS, contains 42% or 55 percent fructose. Health issues relating to
free fructose include diabetes, leaky gut syndrome, and liver failure.

The
Corn Refiners Association states,”…HFCS-90 is sometimes used in
natural and ‘light’ foods, where very little is needed to provide
sweetness. Syrups with 90% fructose will not state high fructose corn
syrup on the label [anymore], they will state ‘fructose’ or ‘fructose
syrup.”

What is the difference between sugar and high fructose corn syrup?

Fructose
is a simple sugar, or monosaccharide. It occurs naturally in fruits and
in sugar. High fructose corn syrup is a manufactured sugar. It is
produced by a secret chemical process involving extracting sugar from
corn stalk. The extraction process involves a complex chemical enzymatic
process. While cane sugar is made of half glucose and half fructose,
HFCS is made of 55% fructose to 45% glucose. In natural sugar, two sugar
molecules are bound together and are broken down in the digestive
tract. With HFCS, there are no chemical bonds between the fructose and
glucose molecules, so the fructose is released more quickly into the blood stream, triggering blood sugar spikes.
