FDA rejects new name for high-fructose corn syrup. New name included "Sugar"
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) rejects the Corn Refiners Association's bid to change the name of its sweetening agent, high-fructose corn syrup (HFCS) to “corn sugar.”

The sweetener's bad reputation in recent years had led the association to candy-coat the product’s image by submitting an application to the FDA in 2010 to rename their product as a “sugar.”

The association been running a marketing campaign to explain that HFCS is actually a form of sugar and has the same nutritional value as table sugar that people are familiar with.

“Use of the term ‘sugar’ to describe HFCS, a product that is a syrup, would not accurately identify or describe the basic nature of the food or its characterizing properties,” said Michael Landa, director of the FDA’s Center for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition.

As people wake up to the danger of HFCS instead of listening to the people they choose to simply rename to confuse everyone.

Mind-boggling!

It's when this kind of news comes out of the shadows it just further strengthens the fact that they don't care about any of us.
