Most agree that education is key when making our choice to consume a (so-called) food product. From time to time I will be posting information that I truly hope will shed light on ingredients that we consume, and have been FDA Approved.

Here is a new study conducted at Princeton University on the effects of the consumption of sugar (sucrose) vs high fructose corn syrup (HFCS). Note the processing of fructose into HFCS changes absorption rate!

http://www.princeton.edu/main/news/archive/S26/91/22K07/

Question: Coke Classic is made with HFCS in the US. They use sugar in Mexico. Why is that?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coca-Cola

And, a special note, most Dr.'s are only required to take one semester of nutrition throughout their education. While some pursue it further, you might consider asking your Dr. about their education of nutrition before asking their advice on nutrition.

Well, I'm partial to Pepsi and when they did the "throwback" with real sugar, I liked the taste better. Now that I'm trying to cut soda out of my diet... I hope they make it taste horrible!

I agree that HFCS is bad for you (as are most drinks/foods that have high sugar content). Sometimes with diet though, it all depends on what time of day (morning) you eat these foods.

Not many people look at the ingredients of the food they buy though....especially when these foods are packaged and labeled as "healthy" food. This is NOT a complete list either. For whatever reason, a complete list of foods with HFCS (and the amount of) cannot be found on the internet. Thanks to this person for at least starting a list.

Now why would it depend on what time of day you eat the foods containing HFCS?

The fructose, when processed to HFCS, becomes unbound, and is into your system without the metabolic steps to break it down. That means regardless of your caloric intake or macronutrient ratios your chances of storing fat are greatly accelerated.

LOL...I'm glad that's all you took out of what I posted. If I'm incorrect on that fact though, I apologize. From nutrition classes and doctors advise I was always under the impression that you should avoid any kind of overly sugary (HFCS added or otherwise) foods or beverages after 1 or 2pm because of the amount of time your body takes to process sugars.

Also, not everybody agrees with the Princeton findings....not even the American Diabetic Association.

Gross Errors in Princeton Animal Study on Obesity and High Fructose Corn Syrup
Research in Humans Discredits Princeton Study

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
March 22, 2010

CONTACT: Audrae Erickson
(202) 331-1634

WASHINGTON, DC – A March 22, 2010 press release entitled “A sweet problem: Princeton researchers find that high-fructose corn syrup prompts considerably more weight gain” issued by Princeton University was based on a study that used grossly exaggerated intake levels in rats and incorrectly suggested that such results could have significant meaning for humans.

In the study “High –fructose corn syrup causes characteristics of obesity in rats: Increased body weight, body fat and triglyceride levels,”(1) the authors failed to put into perspective the excessive amount consumed by the rats in their experimental design. Translating the study’s reported rat intakes to human proportions, the calories gained from high fructose corn syrup would be equivalent to about 3000 kcal/day all from that single source. In comparison, adult humans consume about 2,000 calories per day from all dietary sources. Such intake levels for the study animals would be the equivalent of humans drinking a total of 20 cans of 12 ounce sodas per day - a highly unrealistic amount. Moreover, the researchers concluded that the rats gained more weight from high fructose corn syrup than they would have from sugar, yet the researchers had no proper basis for drawing this conclusion since they failed to provide sucrose controls for part of the study’s short-term experiments and no sucrose controls whatsoever were present in any of the long-term experiments.

“Consumers should not be misled by exaggerated studies that feed astronomical amounts of one ingredient to the study subjects, in this case rats. The medical community has long dismissed results from rat dietary studies as being inapplicable to human beings,” stated Audrae Erickson, president, Corn Refiners Association.

“Consumers should rest assured that high fructose corn syrup is safe. The American Medical Association concluded that high fructose corn syrup does not appear to contribute more to obesity than sugar. The American Dietetic Association stated that these two sweeteners are indistinguishable to the human body and are metabolized equivalently,” Erickson noted.

“This study unnecessarily confuses consumers about human metabolism of common sugars in the diet. A sugar is a sugar whether it comes from cane, corn, or beets. Both sugar and high fructose corn syrup are handled the same by the body. No metabolic effects have been found in studies that compare sugar and high fructose corn syrup consumption in humans,” concluded Erickson.

So far, research has yielded conflicting results about the effects of high-fructose corn syrup. For example, various early studies showed an association between increased consumption of sweetened beverages (many of which contained high-fructose corn syrup) and obesity. But recent research — some of which is supported by the beverage industry — suggests that high-fructose corn syrup isn't intrinsically less healthy than other sweeteners, nor is it the root cause of obesity.

While research continues, moderation remains important. Many beverages and other processed foods made with high-fructose corn syrup and other sweeteners are high in calories and low in nutritional value. Regularly including these products in your diet has the potential to promote obesity — which, in turn, promotes conditions such as type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure and coronary artery disease.

Is high fructose corn syrup known to cause diabetes?

No. Many parts of the world, including Australia, Mexico and Europe, have rising rates of obesity and diabetes despite having little or no high fructose corn syrup in their foods and beverages,12,13 which supports findings by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and the American Diabetes Association that the primary causes of diabetes are obesity, advancing age and heredity.

U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) data show that per capita consumption of high fructose corn syrup has been declining in recent years, yet the incidence of obesity and diabetes in the United States remains on the rise.17

I know, I wish the list was more complete, and I did find it amusing (not in a good way) that much of the list was made up of products that supposedly promote healthy eating habits.

I'm not 100% convinced that HFCS is worse for you than regular sugars. From all the advice I've been given and independent research I've done, there doesn't seem to be much more harmful side affects from HFCS than from sugar. I do try to drastically limit sugary food/drinks in our household though (except for the Ben and Jerry's...that is my weakness and special treat lol!).

It's obviously not always possible in today's world, but it should be clear to all of us by now: we should be cooking our own food from organic ingredients whenever possible. Alternately, we should not be cooking at all, but rather just eating raw fruits and vegetables.

I don't eat meat, so I'm not going to comment on the possibility of eating "healthy" as a carnivore... that's for each person to decide.

HFCS is prevalent thanks to our inane agricultural policies. We subsidize corn because it buys votes in the Midwest. Same reason we support corn-based ethanol even though it's inefficient and bad for the environment.

Where to start. A release by the "Corn Refiners Association" is the source to rebutt the Princeton study? Sorry, but that's hilarious! The rats were fed the same precise caloric intake.

Also, the study that found no difference in metabolism of sucrose vs HFCS was a two-day study performed randomly on 30 normal weight women, for it's effect on triglycerides. This is no clinical trial.

The release by the Mayo Clinic makes one great point. "Regularly including these products in your diet has the potential to promote obesity — which, in turn, promotes conditions such as type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure and coronary artery disease."

sweetsurprise.com is a The Corn Refiners Association website.

The last release concerns diabetes and the cause, obesity. Yes, obesity is increasing in the world, and can be directly contributed to many sources. (i.e. lack of exercise, less nutrient dense food, poor food choices etc.)

Thanks again for the information. I have yet to meet any colleague in the undustry who believes that HFCS and sugar are healthy in any way. Nor have I met anyone who believes that they metabolize the same. That's a first for me, but admittedly, I never read the press releases of the Corn Refiners Association.

Yes the articles are from the CRA...but there's a reason I didn't just post articles from their site. The Mayo Clinics findings basically say that there isn't enough concrete research done yet to determine if HFCS is any worse for you that sugar.

Also, which study are you referring to that was just a 2 day study on random women? The American Medical Associations study that claims that high fructose corn syrup does not appear to contribute more to obesity than sugar or the American Diabetes Associations study that said these two sweeteners are indistinguishable to the human body and are metabolized equivalently?

Great point.

The farmers could be using the land, time and money to grow something more beneficial and healthy, but when the "sure" money is paid for corn... that's what they grow. At an excess.

Mexican Coke is the best stuff on the planet.

We're still talking about beverages, right? :wink02:

Steelerstrength, I appreciate the effort here. There is no doubt that there are plenty of food processing additives and technologies that are suspect. (i.e. food colorings) Unfortunately, they are just catering to the instant gratification society we all are living in. There are millions of people to feed out there, and each one of those people has a dollar sign attached. They want their food, and they want it NOW... so make it snappy.

That is easily done using a software program called Nutribase. Best on the market. Enter your food intake for a meal, a day, a week or a year, and it will give you values of approx. 180 nutrients. I have an older version that only values 160 nutrients, but as a nutritionist, I still find it invaluable.

Thank you. Because that's what it all boils down to. Being bought & sold for votes, money or power.

Ya get watcha pay for! The 800.00 version is for professionals that use it to help other folks. Just counting calories is really not enough. You would ever know if you have a vit.C deficiency or iron overload in your diet...for example. How are you doing on Omega 3,6 and 9 from a ratio standpoint? I would not expect very many people to drop that kind of coin for a household software, however, you can spend a fraction of that and let me do it for you on a monthly basis. Like most things it would pay for itself in the long run, but I certainly make a living from it.

When I originally stopped eating meat, it was simply because my girlfriend at the time was a veg. Three years later we broke up, and one of the first things I did was look for barbecued pork ribs, which had been my definition of heaven before.

I nearly puked, and almost immediately (in other words, it wasn't because the meat was bad). Either I had completely lost the ability to process meat, or something psychologically prevented me from enjoying the ribs. All meat tastes like feces to me now.

There are ups and downs to it. Some veggies (and of course all fruits) are better for you raw, but some are better for you nutritionally when cooked, like tomatoes. Lycopene becomes more absorbent for your body when tomatoes are cooked.

Children, pregnant and nursing mothers, anemics and people at risk for osteoporosis should not eat a raw diet. Nutritional deficiencies such as calcium, iron, protein, omega-3 fatty acids and calories may occur. Vitamin B12 deficiency can lead to anemia and neurological problems. Vit B12 can be found in animal products (and obviously it's unhealthy to eat raw animal food products, outside of sushi).

Obviously you can take vitamins to make up for some of what you're not getting in your food, but most vitamins and supplement pills do not absorb into the body the same way that they do from food.

My friend is the same way. She stopped eating most meats mainly because she just didn't like the taste of most and then became a full on vegetarian. Even the smell of cooking meat makes her nauseas now.

She has to take heavy iron supplements now though because she got to the point where her blood was so iron deficient that is was closer to pink than red.

Myself, I don't think I could ever stop eating meat lol. I love chicken, steak and seafood WAY too much!
