High fructose corn syrup–myth versus science
Like monosodium glutamate (MSG), the additive that everyone avoids, except there is absolutely no evidence that it does anything to anyone, high fructose corn syrup (HFCS) has evolved to become the current pariah of the food industry. Even the name sounds a bit chemical, with that “high fructose” leading you to believe it has to be bad. But is it?
That’s where we need to look at the science, because the answers to the questions are quite complicated and quite simple.
