...there is "high fructose corn syrup" in friggin' EVERTHING??? It's frustrating because my Significant Other is a diabetic and has to be very careful about sugar intake. It's gotten to the point that we have to make everything from scratch.

Just a small rant.

Not just cheap; it's subsidized by the government.

...whoevers controlling the use of the stuff..must care alot more about the short term benefits to putting that crap into food, then they do about long term effects and health risks caused by it..

greed does high fructose corn syrup..

eta...even slim fast uses hcfc in many of their products...(i thought the whole slim fast thing was supposed to 'help' you lose weight)...

It sures make you shop around and read labels. It IS possible though! I successfully eliminated hfcs from my diet... except for the occassional snack item.

Don't give up hope!
