I’m tired of seeing so much high fructose corn syrup in beverages.

In soda, it has been found that by using HFCS instead of pure sugar it can make the soda 10 times richer in harmful carbonyl compounds. According to one study, carbonyl compounds are elevated in people with diabetes and are blamed for causing diabetic complications such as foot ulcers and eye and nerve damage. Another study concluded that foods with increased fructose “produced significantly higher fasting plasma triacylglycerol values than did the glucose diet in men” and “if plasma triacylglycerols are a risk factor for cardiovascular disease, then diets high in fructose may be undesirable”.


Pure cane sugar is better and better for you than all these sugar substitutes. In fact, Jones soda switched from high fructose corn syrup to pure cane sugar as a marketing tool.  I’m now finding myself looking at labels to avoid sugar substitutes.  Even if you have to wait for Passover
