Sneaky Name Change Has High Fructose Corn Syrup Hiding in Your Health Food

(Before It's News)

Consumers are finally catching on to the fact that what we put in our mouths effects our waistline as well as our health.  Since consumers have become much smarter and finally waking up to these realities, they are demanding healthier food choices. Every food company is smearing 100% natural on every box of anything regardless of whats inside the box. Now we have to know the new sneaky name to know whether or not we are consuming High Fructose Corn Syrup or not.  Obviously the best way to avoid this mess is to buy from companies you really trust.

Big food companies are hiding ingredients they know we really don’t want to consume in their products. This time it’s the presence of a new version of high fructose corn syrup. But this is not the innocuous fructose that has sweetened the fruits humans have eaten since time began. This is a questionable ingredient with many names that could be causing all sorts of health problems.

The product is General Mills’ Vanilla Chex, an updated version of the Chex cereal sold in most conventional grocery and discount stores for many years. The front of the box clearly states that the product contains “no high fructose corn syrup” (HFCS), but turn it over to read the ingredient list and there it is – the newisolated fructose.

Why is that a problem? According to the Corn Refiners Association (CRA), there’s been a sneaky name change. The term ‘fructose’ is now being used to denote a product that was previously known as HFCS-90, meaning it is 90 percent pure fructose. Compare this to what is termed ‘regular’ HFCS, which contains either 42 or 55 percent fructose, and you will know why General Mills is so eager to keep you in the dark…. READ THE FULL STORY HERE: http://www.jbbardot.com/sneaky-name-change-has-high-fructose-corn-syrup-hiding-in-your-health-food/

  • ANY Company that would pull this kind of CRAP not only does NOT deserve your business, but also doesn’t deserve to BE in business, but it’s owners and managers deserve imprisonment.

    According to “General Mills” and many cwhoreporations of it’s ilk, not only do you, the patron that keeps their doors open, NOT deserve to know what’s in your food, but they also have determined that enough of you are too stupid to care that they can do without the paltry few who ACTUALLY care about the ingredients in your food.

    So, general mills and ANY other company who has to work in secret in order to CON the “useless eaters” also known as their customers, to ingest their CRAP…..

    should be given the boot.

    Both figuratively and literally.

    God bless ‘em.
