Hunt removes HFCS from all products

There has recently been a movement to replace High Fructose Corn Syrup in food products with naturall cane or beet sugar.

Recently, Hunt has removed all HFCS from their product lines. Clearly they are doing this because of customer demand.

HFCS is very cheap, because the American government subsidizes corn. Why do they do this? Simply put, giant food conglomerates like Monsanto lobby the government to influence laws. Lobbyists have successfully put a HUGE import tax on sugar.

So sugar is expensive, and corn syrup is cheap. Following me?

This is the sort of things that make me want to firebomb corporate headquarters.

  7. This is a good move, High Fructose Corn Syrup is a nightmare. Hear about their plan to rename it? Bastards, all of them.

  13. It's been almost a month since the doctor told me I was borderline type 2 diabetes. That same day I made the commitment to get in health, and have managed to drop 9 pounds already!!

    Really glad to see stuff like this, since I now know our food is slowly getting healthier.
