The High Fructose Corn Syrup Argument.



Is it good for you or bad for you?  A new report from WebMD Health News cites an expert panel in saying that there's no additional risk for obesity from high fructose corn syrup than from sucrose or fruit-based concentrates. 

That hasn't stopped soup-and-sandwich chain Jason's Deli from taking steps to eradicate it from its menu.  Already gone from the food menu, Jason's is polling customers on whether to lose drinks with the substance as well. 

Meanwhile, you may have seen ads from the Corn Refiner's Association about the value and safety of high fructose corn syrup in foods (video on the jump).

So, here's your chance to share your thoughts.  Do you think high fructose corn syrup is bad for you?  Have you tried to bystep the ingredient in the food and drink choices you make?  Or is it inconsequential?  Your comments wanted.
