I was never a fan of High Fructose Corn syrup. In the mid 70’s it started to show in more and more products. It worried me because I did not believe for a minute that companies were replacing sugar with HFCS because it was healthier. Then in 1976 a friend in the AG products industry confided in me that he was being put in charge of a nationwide campaign to discredit sugar. The reason? So that HFCS could be introduced under the consumer radar. It worked, and the company he worked for is still making hundreds of millions in the production and sales of HFCS. Today, my friend is an advocate of organic foods and has a hobby farm in ohio where he grows his own food.
