A wobbly spin, those HFCS folks
Not sure how long this entity has been advertising here, but noticed a link to this sect of the "Corn Refiners of America" today.
sweet surprise . com which has such passages such as, "But when we focus on one ingredient, we end up with products like trans-fat-free Cheetos, or Pepsi Natural, which has sugar instead of high-fructose corn syrup. There's nothing natural about processed sugar. We need to take a holistic approach and realize it's the entirety of processed foods that is the problem and not just one ingredient."
The underlying point of the first sentence is incomprehensible without some (missing) prior contextual info, and the rest of it seems to be saying, "Hey it's the same as sugar." The passage almost seems like it was originally published against HFCS but highlighted by the HFCS folks because this little nugget by itself seem to support it, especially if you read it with no prior knowledge of the whole corn/gmo issue.
And then, "The bottom line for most of us is that we need to reduce the amount of overall sweetener in our daily diets, regardless of what the source is."
No doubt, so why are these particular folks/companies-supporting-this making more and more products with HFCS instead of the real fruits or veggies or other ingredients from which they were originally? They could care less about anyone's health except to wish that they live reasonably long enough to consume tons of their products.
It's renewed my resolve to remind everyone this week to read those labels and try to buy jelly made out of fruit, ketchup made out of tomatoes, ranch made out of buttermilk, etc... It's about as in-depth as most want to go before they lose interest, trying to be polite and act like they're paying attention while they sip soda. Right before they tell you they're "trying a new diet."
