I don’t know what most of you know about High Fructose Corn Syrup (HFCS), but it isn’t a healthy ingredient. It is made with Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs). As our family has been reading new materials and watching food documentaries, we are becoming more and more aware of how the FDA is allowing in our food supply – most of which is not healthy for us.
We have always tried to drink pure juice. I love my orange juice in the morning, but my husband likes grape, cranberry and apple on occasion as well. My husband recently bought some cranberry juice that was only 20% juice, by mistake, but the here is what the Langers’ juice container had written on the side:
‘Sweetened with Real Sugar': Is high furctose corn syrup (HFCS) a major cause of obesity? Most nutritionists say yes. The body processes hight furctose corn syurp differently than it does sugar, altering the way the metabolism is regulated. As a result, the body is tricked into craving more while the liver releases additional fat into the bloodstream. We eat more and at the same time store more fat. Langers Cranberry and Raspberry Juice Cocktail is a delicious and nutritious alternative to beverages sweetened with HFCS. Enjoy it today.
Incredible that a juice company has stopped using HFCS, isn’t it? That isn’t all the news. Pepsi is getting on board as well. Take a look at this article: http://industry.bnet.com/food/10001771/the-death-of-high-fructose-corn-syrup/
