64 Days of Michael Pollan Day#4

Day#4 Avoid food products that contain high-fructose corn syrup.

Not because high-fructose corn syrup (HFCS) is any worse for you than sugar, but because it is, like many unfamiliar ingredients in packaged foods, a reliable marker for a food product that has been highly processed. Also, high-fructose corn syrup is being added to hundreds of foods that have not traditionally been sweetened-breads, condiments, and many snack foods-so if you avoid products that contain it, you will cut down on your sugar intake. But dont fall for the food industry's latest scam: products reformulated to contain "no HFCS" or "real cane sugar". These claims imply these foods are somehow healthier, but they're not. Sugar is sugar.

Sorry to say, we can't believe what we read on the front of a can or product. One must read the list of ingredients found on the back to know what is truly in the product.
