Five Unexpected Sources of High Fructose Corn Syrup

Fifty years ago…

Sugar was called “pure, white, and deadly,” for its link to the heart disease epidemic in North America.

Today, the situation has only worsened.

High fructose corn syrup (HFCS) crawled its way into most packaged foods we eat…

And studies show it’s even MORE harmful than regular sugar.

Why?

Because of its higher concentration of free fructose.

Like regular sugar, free fructose is broken down in your small intestine…

But only until it overloads your body. 

When you’re overloaded…

Free fructose is redirected to your liver…

Which makes you hungrier…

Inflames your brain…

And even promotes psychological stress.

Worse, calories don’t matter. 

If you eat a diet high in HFCS but stay low on caloric intake…

You can still experience negative health symptoms.  

But does all this stop the food industry from putting it everywhere? 

The answer is NO…

Because HFCS is CHEAP! 

It’s twice as sweet as traditional sugar….

So food manufacturers only need a tiny bit to make something taste good.

Here are five shocking foods with HFCS:

  • Breads
  • Canned soups
  • Fat-free salad dressings
  • Granola and cereal bars
  • Ketchup, steak sauce, relish, and other condiments

I was certainly shocked when I checked the ingredients on “healthy” foods only to discover they were loaded with high fructose corn syrup…

Especially the savoury stuff. 

So next time you’re at the grocery store…

Be sure to check before you buy!  

P.S. You might recognize fructose as the natural sugar found in fruits. However, ‘free fructose’ means it isn’t bonded to fibre, vitamins, and other minerals found in fruit. That’s part of why there’s a huge difference between drinking pop and eating an apple!
