The Rotten Fruit ?-Is Fruit Sugar Bad For Your Health
The Rotten Fruit ?
In the United States the recent concen over the use of fructose corn syrup has led to it being branded as the devils candy- and many irate parents are declaring they don’t want their children eating corn syrup in their food.
Here in Britain, the Food Standards Agency do not regard fructose corn syrup as an additive and is classed as thick sugar, not widely used and not a danger to your health.A quick look in my local supermarket and I find it is used in many brands of cakes ,biscuits, yoghurts,ice-cream and many energy drinks.
Corn Syrup is a natural healthy sweetening product and derived directly from fruit. it is added to many processed foods we buy, but now food experts believe fructose is linked to cancer,dementia, heart disease,diabetes and kidney damage.
