Fructose Corn Syrup
This is your brain on sugar — for real. Scientists have used imaging tests to show for the first time that fructose, a sugar that saturates the American diet, can trigger brain changes that may lead to overeating.
High fructose corn syrup won’t get a wholesome new name after all. The FDA has rejected the Corn Refiners Association’s bid to rename its sweetening agent “corn sugar.”
The Food and Drug Administration has cautioned the corn industry over its ongoing use of the term “corn sugar” to describe high fructose corn syrup, asking them to stop using the proposed new name.
