High Fructose Corn Syrup in Food
There’s often a lot of talk about high fructose corn syrup in foods and how much HFCS we’re consuming. But it’s important to realize that size does matter—and the quantity of high fructose corn syrup in many foods is quite small.
- 87 bowls of bran cereal
- 39 slices of bread
- 20 servings of spaghetti sauce
- 50 servings of salad dressing
As you can see, the actual amount of high fructose corn syrup in the above items is very small. However, it is an important ingredient that performs numerous functions in food preparation.
