What’s the Big Deal about High Fructose Corn Syrup Anyhow?

Really though, what is the big deal about High Fructose Corn Syrup? More than likely you have either drink or eaten plenty of High Fructose Corn Syrup (HFCS) in your life, and you haven’t died yet, right? Things that don’t kill us right away causes us to be complacent, don’t they? It reminds me of TV star David Carradine who stared in a long-running series called Kung Fu in the 1970’s.  I know I’ve seen every one of them and enjoy it very much as a teen. To my shock though David Carradine died a very odd death. Well, odd to me anyhow. He died of autoerotic asphyxiation. Sex experts say that Carradine’s advanced age suggests that he may have been a lifelong practitioner of the secretive and dangerous practice, one that can go fatally awry.

Do you feel this example extreme comparing HFCS to autoerotic asphyxiation? I do not. HFCS is addictive.(1) The shocking thing is, it’s found in so many of our food and drink products that it’s hard to get away from! From bread to condiments, juices, to spaghetti sauces. It’s ridiculous! Think for a moment, why manufacturers are putting HFCS in our store bought products? They know that Americans have been used to having their food taste sweet and that HFCS is addictive(1). So, if they can get you addicted to their product, that equals profit for them. Unfortunately for us though, in the long run; it equals health issues. So just to be clear, we are talking about an over-consumption of HFCS. Not an occasional thing. Since it’s already in so much of the food we buy, adding soda to your diet, it is over consumed and you may not even realize it until you start having health issues.

Other names for HFCS or variations of HFCS

  • HFCS-90
  • Maize syrup
  • Glucose syrup
  • Tapioca syrup
  • Dahlia syrup
  • Fructose
  • Fructose syrup
  • Fruit fructose

 

According to Wikipedia, in Canada, they call it “Glucose-Fructose.”

In Europe, they call it “Isoglucose, Glucose-Fructose Syrup” or “Fructose-Glucose Syrup.”

HFCS (or any type of corn syrup) undergoes processing that converts its glucose into fructose, which turns it into 90% fat-storing fructose.

Thus the name: High Fructose Corn Syrup

What type of health issues can HFCS cause with over-consumption? (1)

  • Obesity
  • Diabetes
  • Hypertension
  • Heart Disease
  • Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease
  • and more!

What to do about it?

Stop drinking all soda’s with HFCS. Instead, swap Soda’s out for water, sparkling water, green tea, and if you decide to drink juice; make sure it’s free of HFCS.

When buying food at the grocery store, be sure to read the ingredients. If the brand you normally buy has HFCS, replace it with a brand that doesn’t have HFCS.

When we “vote” with our money, companies will get the “hint” and stop putting HFCS in their products. Beyond this, consider calling or emailing the companies of products that you would love to continue eating if it didn’t have HFCS in it.
