High fructose corn syrup isn’t my favorite thing. I haven’t heard anything good about the stuff. It’s made from milling corn to produce cornstarch, then processing that into syrup. It’s cheaper for manufacturers of food products than sugar, and is in almost everything I buy. Many studies link this syrup to the rise in obesity in the United States.
I used to love the marinades you could buy in the dressing isle at the grocery store, until I realized I couldn’t find one without high fructose corn syrup. Now I just make my own. Not quite as convenient, but cheaper and healthier in the long run.
Same experience with bread, but I finally found a bread I can love! Try Milton’s Multi-Grain Plus Bread. Nutty and flavorful, it doesn’t contain high fructose corn syrup. At least I couldn’t find it on the list of ingredients. It’s wonderful toasted, and even my white bread loving husband will eat it. That’s the best testimonial I’ve heard of!
