Corn Industry Tries to Hoodwink Consumers with HFCS Name Change
In the face of mounting consumer
concerns about the dangers of high
fructose corn syrup (HFCS) and
defecting food company clients, the
Corn Refiners Association has come
up with a solution: Instead of
trying to give consumers a healthier
product, they have petitioned the
FDA to let them give HFCS a new
name: "corn sugar".
According to Audrae Erickson,
president of the Washington-based
Corn Refiners Association: "Clearly
the name is confusing consumers.
Research shows that 'corn sugar'
better communicates the amount of
calories, the level of fructose and
the sweetness in this ingredient."
