Sugar is Sugar

Cornrefiner
January 19, 2011
Consumers are being misled into thinking that there are nutritional differences between high fructose corn syrup and sugar, when in fact they are nutritionally the same. Whether it's corn sugar or cane sugar, your body can't tell the difference. Sugar is sugar. They all contain four calories per gram. Switching out a kind of corn sugar for table sugar is not for health and it is not for science. According to the American Dietetic Association, “high fructose corn syrup…is nutritionally equivalent to sucrose. Once absorbed into the blood stream, the two sweeteners are indistinguishable.” It is a popular misconception that high fructose corn syrup is more 'processed' than sugar, fruit juice concentrate, or agave nectar production. In fact, they all go through remarkably similar production methods that aim to refine the raw botanical material into a food grade standard sweetener that can be formulated into a wide range of foods and beverages. Read more at www.bit.ly/gez2Gl. As many dietitians agree, all sugars should be consumed in moderation as part of a balanced lifestyle. Consumers can see the latest research and learn more about high fructose corn syrup at www.CornSugar.com. Audrae Erickson President Corn Refiners Association
