has High Fructose Corn Syrup as one of the "5 natural ingredients"

isn't it false advertising to say this is natural?

Is HFCS made synthetically in a lab?

Or does it come from corn?

Perhaps this shows the flawed approach of calling something natural or organic.

Actually the biggest difference is likely the absence of synthetic flavours and colours.

The flavour industy has some of the best lawyers in the business. Their products are considered intellectual property and they don't have to disclose the ingredients.

We could be taking concoctions made entirely of carcinogens.

Somebody 2 fold smarter than me please explain this.

I was under the impression HFCS was just two natural sugars mixed together?

I was under the impression it was made by treating corn with an enzyme which converts the starch to fructose.

so is HFCS natural, or not?

and if it is natural, why is it such a big deal

The sole reason why HFCS is used is because it is cheaper than sugar. It's even more refined than sugar. That's how crappy it is.

Fructose is insulin independant, and not always fast digesting.

There we go. :clap:

Even if the enzymes they use are cultivated naturally the result is an abominaton of nature.

If we look at fructose in it's natural state it takes a truckload of fruit to yield high amounts of fructose.

Therefore one could argue that taking in large amounts of fructose (directly) is not natural.

If it came from fruit there would be the factors of water and fibre not to mention the sheer time taken to eat and chew the fruit. The response in your body would be somewhat different.
