Talk about sugar coating! Five more sugar companies have joined the lawsuit to halt the corn industry from marketing HFCS (high fructose corn syrup) as a natural sugar. You may have seen their commercial, where a father and his young daughter are walking through a cornfield stating that whether it’s corn sugar or cane sugar, our body cannot tell the difference. “Sugar is sugar.”
The research has come to a fork in the road. There are so many different sides to the story. One research study suggested that people who consume corn sugar have a higher disposition to have high cholesterol, triglycerides and become obese. Other research suggested that corn sugar and cane sugar have similar nutritional values and with any sweetener, moderation is key.
