Fruits and vegetables should be in all the food habits of everyone, my wife is a nutritionist and she told me the relevance of Fruits and vegetables!

This is something I only found out a couple weeks ago and I was furious! I have been drinking Vitamin Water for a couple months now and I happened to be reading something about HFCS and those two words popped up "Crystalline Fructose" which is what they use in Vitamin Water. Might as well have been drinking cups of Aunt Jemima syrup... ugh!

Thanks for the information, I didn't know that crystalline fructose was made from HFCS. I guess that explains why fructose is cheap enough to have found it's way into so many foods.

I also wanted to say, when I first read that you were doing HCFS free I didn't even know what it was. I had never seen it on a label in Canada. Then I realised it is labeled here as "glucose/fructose". I've learned to look for the placement of that on the label. I'm not going glucose/fructose free....I just don't buy much with it at the top of the ingredient list anymore.

Interesting that you say too much fructose is associated with type 2 diabetes. My mother is type 2 and she was told to use fructose in place of glucose. Hmmmm. I guess it comes down to the ammount you use. A diabetic should just not use much sugar at all but that if you do, fructose is better than glucose.

Regular table sugar (sucrose) is made up of glucose and fructose.

I think at the end of the day, any added sugar is not beneficial to our health

Pomegranate - True enough. And maple syrup and honey are both about 50% fructose. But...at least you get trace minerals and other good stuff with these natural sources of fructose/glucose. And I can guarantee you that no one is making crystalline fructose from agave nectar! :-)

2009-11-16T07:34:24.003-08:00

Agave nectar is a natural form of fructose. Sorry if you already knew that, I'm new to your blog.

2009-11-03T18:08:48.928-08:00

It's amazing how many places fructose is popping up. Nothing is safe anymore and it seems that fructose is really going to make its mark on the world, whether in candy or many other foods.

Thanks for sharing this, great information.

Wow - it seems we have to be a lot more careful now than ever when we read labels.

2009-11-01T10:17:16.407-08:00

Thanks for doing the research. This is something I'll keep my eye out for. Can't say I've noticed it before, but I'll probably start seeing it everywhere now that i'm aware.

I am a careful label reader, and I try to be well informed on food marketing.... heck I even blog about it from time to time, and I had no idea the "fructose" was marketing speak for HFCS!

It disappoints me that our government lets food companies get away with this nonsense.

Luckily, I only eat these garbage products once a month or less because I generally avoid processed foods out of mistrust.

Thanks for giving me more information about dishonest labeling practices.
