Food Rules…. Avoid food products that contain high-fructose corn syrup (HFCS)
- Packaged foods containing HFCS are reliable markers for highly processed foods
- HFCS is added to foods not traditionally sweetened; avoiding them will cut sugar intake
- Sugar is sugar. “NO HFCS” & “Real Cane Sugar” claims wrongly imply these products are healthier.
