Have you visited LetsClearItUp.org yet? It is a great resource for dispelling rumors and myths about our products. For instance, you might have heard that high fructose corn syrup (HFCS), a common liquid sweetener made from corn, puts people at higher risk for becoming obese or causing diabetes. However, the science shows that this simply is not the case. Check out this quick myth vs. fact from the website:
MYTH: High fructose corn syrup (HFCS) causes obesity and diabetes.
FACT: Actually, the American Medical Association has concluded that HFCS is not a unique contributor to either obesity or type 2 diabetes. In fact, HFCS is so similar to sucrose (table sugar) that your body can’t tell the difference between the two, and processes both in the same way.
