    Q. What's all the hype with High Fructose Corn Syrup?  Isn't it just another sugar?

    A. High fructose corn syrup (HFCS) is a sweetener processed by converting glucose into fructose in cornstarch.  Both glucose and fructose are types of sugar.

    HFCS is commonly found in soda, sweetened cereals, baked goods, and other processed foods.  It has become popular in processed foods since it is cheaper than table sugar and it helps to extend the shelf life of products.

    The hype about HFCS is whether it causes weight gain.

    A recent study from Princeton University found that rats given HFCS gained significantly more weight compared to rats given table sugar even though the amount of calories consumed were the same.

    Everyone, not just people with diabetes, should limit foods containing high fructose corn syrup and other added sugar.  These "empty calorie" foods tend to be high in calories and low in other nutrients.
