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.
