I avoid it like the plague, with the exception of the very occasional soda when I can't get a Coke made with regular sugar. Still, I know that I can't avoid it entirely. It's even in infant formula. How sick is that?

When someone says "it's not that bad for you" I say, "But is it GOOD for you?"

This article talks about there being a link between products containing HFCS and mercury. (No wonder I get sore joints after I eat the stuff--mercury is a huge no-no for people with autoimmune disease.)

(Incidentally, for those who may be wondering about the Karo corn syrup our grandmothers used to make candy & pecan pies with, HFCS is another animal entirely. Karo corn syrup contains no HFCS. They added it for a brief period, then removed it due to consumer complaints.)

Oh, awesome. Thanks, I'll look for organic. Man I miss Trader Joe's. Where I grew up in California there were several, but we don't have one in upstate NY at all! :-(

If you can find organic ketchup it won't have HFCS in it. I get mine at Trader Joe's and honestly, it has so much more flavor than Heinz.

I swear that ketchup is the hardest thing to give up that contains HFCS. Do they make a ketchup out there somewhere that doesn't have HFCS?

HFCS is one of those ingredients I'm watching out for and phasing out of my life. Geez, it's in almost everything it seems! But it's on its way out.

This is my favorite pet topic! :) I look at EVERYTHING to make sure it doesn't have HFCS in it (when I buy packaged, which is becoming less and less frequent).

Someone recently gave me the "it's not that bad for you" speech... to which I replied: when I stopped eating broccoli for a long time, then went back, I felt BETTER for eating the broccoli. Recently I ate something with HFCS in it after having not had any for quite some time, and it made me so sick it put me into bed for the rest of the day. These CHEMICALS can't be good for us if one serving makes the body rebel. (It's so bad I can't do HFCS at ALL any more. I'm so used to not having it...)

I love this video too (playing off the commercials):
www.youtube.com/watch?v=hYiEFu54o1E

To avoid unnatural additives I just make my own bread, preserves, and yogurt, and then eat oatmeal or eggs from our chickens for breakfast.

Also watch out for HFCS in tomato based products like ketchup and pasta sauce. Go organic when you can because it can't be called organic if it has HFCS in it.

Isabel de los Rios, who sells a program called "The Diet Solution" just recorded some videos about High Fructose Corn Syrup.

thedietsolution-program.com/blog/the-truth
-about-high-fructose-corn-syrup/


Some of her key points:
1) HFCS is not natural, because although they start with corn, it is then chemically processed -- no longer natural!
2) HFCS is worse then sugar, but even if it weren't, sugar isn't good for you either!!!
3) HFCS is not like honey. Honey is natural and made by bees. HFCS is made by chemists. Not the same.

She also has a second video on the same page where she highlights some surprising items that have HFCS:
-Wonder 100% whole wheat bread
-Raisin Bran cereal
-Yoplait lowfat yogurt
-Jelly
