Q: Now let’s talk about the difference between high fructose corn syrup and fructose found in fruit.
RP: The funny thing about that is if you look at the fructose and glucose content, it seems to be not very different from any old sugar, maybe 45/55 percent, rather than a 50/50 balance fructose and glucose. But people actually thought to analyze what is in the stuff (other than fructose and glucose). And it turns out that the reason people get fat on soft drinks that contain HFCS is that it contains a huge amount of calories that are neither fructose or glucose. It’s the syrupy component, basically a type of corn starch or corn syrup, which they don't count because it isn’t fructose or glucose. But, it’s there, as calories.
what does this mean? that foods with high-fructose corn syrup like coke, soda, icecream, Cereal Bars, Breads, candy etc etcc contains more kcal & sugar than mentioned on label?
