High Fructose Corn Syrup

It is in just about everything except the sweetener isle in your supermarket. If it's so good, why can't you buy it? Oh yeah, you can get products with it already in there but just try to buy a pound of it at Safeway. It is not sold retail because there is no demand. People don't want it.
Good news for people that don't want High Fructose Corn Syrup in all of their foods. http://www.flex-news-food.com/pages/16166/Sweetener/corn-syrup-costs-health-issues-boost-sugar-use-dj.html This article from Flex News says that due to high cost, a move back to sugar is happening. HFCS is destructive to the planet, read this from the Washington Post.

HFCS is made from genetically modified corn and is not an equal balance of glucose and fructose as cane and beet sugar is. Avoid this stuff when possible and learn more about it.

Save the planet and yourselves, boycott this stuff!
