I had no idea how much high fructose corn syrup (HFCS) could affect how we feel and our behavior. Or how ubiquitous it is in our food!

I had HFCS all the time, before pregnancy. But, after all of our son's food intolerances and nursing, I had so many benefits from not eating it. I know our son is much more keyed up when he consumes HFCS. We've been able to find many preferable products which do not contain HFCS, such as popsicles, juice, cereal, beverages, candy, condiments, cookies, cakes, pastries, cough syrups, crackers, beverage mixes, supplements, frozen foods, ice cream, jelly, syrup, salad dressings, sauces, snacks, soups, honey, canned foods.


Here is a long list of foods which use HFCS, by brand:

And by fast food restaurant, including Arby's, Blimpie, Burger King, Chick-fil-A, Dairy Queen, Jack in the Box, KFC, McDonalds, Subway, Taco Bell, Whataburger, etc.

HFCS is GMO-corn based too! It has been shown that GMO products alter the bacteria in the gut after only one exposure. HFCS is terrible on our insulin/sugar regulation system, also.

"Rats with access to high-fructose corn syrup gained significantly more weight than those with access to table sugar, even when their overall caloric intake was the same."

http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2010/03100322121115.htm


"HFCS now represents more than 40 percent of caloric sweeteners added to
foods and beverages and is the sole caloric sweetener in soft drinks in
the United States."
