About the HFCS Zoo

On the one hand, we have "The average American drinks 50 gallons of soda each year, far outreaching milk, bottled water or even alcohol consumption. Globally, carbonated soft drink sales are to the tune of $200 billion; the industry's profit margins are notoriously high and center on a product with no nutritional value. Yet, we keep on guzzling. Or, as Ani DiFranco put it, "we're led by denial like lambs to the slaughter/ Serving empires of style and carbonated sugar water." (You may pause here for an Ani-related, rum-and-coke college flashback.)" from Seth of the Huffington Post.

On the other hand, HFCSFacts says "HFCS, table sugar, honey, and several fruit juices all contain the same simple sugars.
HFCS is safe and nutritionally the same as other common sweeteners like table sugar and honey.
HFCS has the same number of calories as table sugar.
HFCS is equal in sweetness to table sugar.
HFCS keeps foods fresh. It enhances fruit and spice flavors. It retains moisture in bran cereals and helps keep breakfast bars moist."

Confused? Stick around. We'll talk about it...here in HFCS Zoo.
