Top 10 Foods That Contain High Fructose Corn Syrup

It’s super cheap—cheaper than sugar—and that means processed food manufacturers can load up on it, sweetening their goodies at rock-bottom prices and further driving our waistlines out. It’s high fructose corn syrup (HFCS) and it’s found in some pretty surprising places. In fact, the foods with high fructose corn syrup may be foods you eat every single day.

While this Huffington Post article on the hidden presence of HFCS says “the jury is still out” on whether it’s dangerous or any more dangerous than sugar, we know differently. This cheap sweetener has been linked to obesity, learning ability and memory, and high blood pressure, to name a few health issues. As if that isn’t enough, it has also been shown to contain toxic mercury.

So, while some would have you believe HFCS is no more dangerous than white sugar (as if that isn’t bad enough), we know differently.

Big money is made in the corn industry—big, big money—and therefore big money is spent counteracting every study and inkling that suggests any product of the industry is less than great for you (HFCS included). Of course consumers are increasingly realizing that HFCS and foods with high fructose corn syrup can be health-damaging, so manufacturers decided to change things up.

As the morbid health effects of high fructose corn syrup continue to be brought to the forefront of the media, the Corn Refiners Association has decided in the past to give their cheap product a new name – corn sugar.

Staying informed on the latest research and watching your foods like a hawk can help keep you and your family safe.

Foods with High Fructose Corn Syrup

Here are some foods with high fructose corn syrup that you may have never expected to contain the ingredients – foods you may be eating every day.
  1. Yogurts
  2. Breads
  3. Frozen pizzas
  4. Cereal bars
  5. Cocktail peanuts
  6. Boxed macaroni and cheese
  7. Salad Dressing
  8. Tonic
  9. Applesauce
  10. Canned Fruit
Although there are 10 foods here, we bet you can find many more. It costs companies more to sweeten their foods with sugar, and even more with honey. So, because they are interested in nothing more than the bottom line – money, they often choose HFCS. It’s in ketchups, soups, cereals, pasta sauces, and more.

This is just another reason to steer clear of highly processed foods. Americans consume a whopping 35 pounds of HFCS each year, showing just how prevalent foods with high fructose corn syrup are.

Stick with the natural stuff. If it comes in a box, bag, or can, be extra suspicious, or even better—just stay away.

I dont know if anyone is aware of the UN sustainability programs goal is population reduction on a grand scale. They will do this with Chemtrails, super bugs, GMO foods radiating our food, vaccines, chemicals in food, poisons,etc. There is no way we can avoid it, Nothing is safe to eat. I just learned today that the chance of parasidic infections can increase through organic fresh vegies and fruits. what you have to do to prevent it is just too much.

I watched a Youtube called "The Skinny on Obesity (Ep. 2): Sickeningly Sweet" about 4 months ago. The doctor spells out exactly how and why Fructose and HFCS destroy your health. He also explains the exact diseases Fructose will cause.

The good news: I eliminated Fructose,HFCS and sugar in general from my life. I am already stronger, leaner and my arthritis pain has decreased to almost nothing.

There are withdrawal symptoms/cravings but they pass away.

Heard someone say "if your grandmother wouldn't recognise it, don't eat it ". Good advice.

Please do not neglect blaming the government for their high sugar tariffs. This raises the cost of sugar and makes HFCS more attractive as a replacement.

Watch out for Bakeries too. I always check with them to see what ingredients are in the items and I never hesitate to tell them about HFC, Canola, Soya etc. I also tell them they are killing their own customers. You should see the startled looks they give me. They never thought of it that way. Talk about stupid.

Over 18 months or so I started to take care of myself for a healthy life style, since then I have pay a lot of attention on food labeling. My daily workouts & eating healthy meals has made a big difference.

There was a time when I never knew anything about High Fructose Corn Syrup, Canola, Soya. Well I know all about this & other so called healthy stuff.

Its a pity that lots of people are tricked food companies who make claims how good their healthy products are. I note other people's shopping goods at the checkout desks in the supermarkets, I just shake my head in disbelief...they don't know?
