I found a list courtesy of The Accidental Hedonist that has all the products they’ve encountered with HFCS.

You can find it here.

With that I have decided to add a page to my site that categorizes foods without HFCS. Right now it is a very-very-short list with things I could rattle off of the top of my head. I would appreciate anyone’s comments on adding more foods.

I may make a trip to the organic market this weekend. I really have to read that twice when I think about it. I would never consider going to an organic market, it’s just not my thing. But it looks like it’s about to be because I think that is the only place I will find foods without HFCS.

As I come across new foods with out HFCS I will introduce a reviewing system for them. It’ll be my personal opinion so don’t take me too seriously now.

High Fructose Corn Syrup or HFCS, is in nearly everything we eat or drink today. It is a controversial ingredient derived from corn that is cheap to produce and shuttle around than sugar. The controversy is with it’s health implications, some believe it is harmful, some believe otherwise, yet there is hardly any evidence to swing the vote either way. It’s amazing that HFCS is an ingredient in just about everything we eat, yet almost no one knows anything about it.

That brings me into the picture. I’m out to see if HFCS is really as bad as some believe it to be. As of yesterday I was like every other average Joe out there that didn’t give a hoot that there was some corn in his sugar. I’m going to see if HFCS affects my weight, health, and overall well being by depriving myself of it for as long as possible. Meanwhile I will be researching all I can about HFCS, trying as best as I can to show both sides of the story and educated the public as much as possible.

This being my first post it is void of any solid information, the following posts will include more research.
