    Thanks, the article was packed with information, nice job!. IMO the word “outrage” is used so much these days that its lost its meaning. One can’t walk around “outraged” 24/7 lol. Less “outrage” please.

    High fructose corn syrup? Artificially sweetened treats? Were there ANY whole-food advisers? Looks like it was little more than a place for advertising monies.

    HFCS booth at a AADE convention. What’s next, a skinhead booth at a rabbinical convention?

    I have to laugh at what their booth says, “Meets FDA Natural Definition,” as if that makes it ALL better. Why wasn’t RJ Reynolds there giving out free smokes?

    I find the comments re Cor Syrup facinating – I wouldn’t be alive today if it weren’t for ‘Beehive’ Corn Syrup! Back in the ’50′s there wasn’t much around to treat hypoglycemia at home / at school / on camping trips….. – the glucose in the Corn syrup was easily absorbed – even in the mouth – so a semi conscious hypo child could be roused enough to start responding to commands to ‘swallow’. And the side effects from corn syrup are much more tolerable [high blood sugar] than the side effects of Glucagon [only had it once that I remember - that was enough!].
    My question of course would be why does anyone want a high fructose syrup – it’s like using three or more laces to secure a running shoe – one lace will make it work better – i.e. frucotse is a string of glucose molecules that have to be broken apart before the body can use the glucose.
    There are two sides to evey coin – that’s a bit of an archive for you!.
