    • Understand what is High Fructose Corn Syrup?
    • Understand how to find if foods contain High Fructose Corn Syrup, and know how to avoid them.
    • Added to soft drinks and processed foods between 1975-1985.
    High Fructose Corn Syrup (HFCS) was first produced in 1953, but the process wasn’t efficient enough for mass production. Successfully introduced to the masses between 1965-1970.
  •  
  •  
    • It’s cheap to make and inexpensive to add to food.
    It comes in liquid form so it’s easily transported.
  • In December 2008 the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition found no specific support for the hypothesis that HFCS is causing obesity in the United States. The FDA says that HFCS is safe to consume.
  • A study done by Princeton University found that studies have shown that HFCS can lead to an increase in abdominal fat and circulating triglycerides. Rats fed diets with HFCS over high-fat diets gained more weight and “ballooned” in size. The rats also had higher triglyceride levels.
  • Princeton University also goes on to state that extra abdominal fat is a key component in the development of : diabetes, high blood pressure, and high cholesterol. High blood cholesterol is a major risk factor in developing heart disease.
  •  
    • To help you avoid HFCS throughout your day, try the following:
    • Read the ingredient label:
    Although more manufacturers are removing HFCS and marketing it on their products, you sometimes cannot tell by the front of the package.
    • Drink water, carbonated water, or unsweetened beverages.
    • Drink zero calorie beverages that are sweetened with artificial sweetener.
    • Drink soft drinks that use Original Formulas (if you’re craving a soft drink)
