Log Cabin Syrup
August 3rd, 2017
We won’t take you back to high school chemistry to explain the process through which pure corn syrup becomes high fructose corn syrup because (1) you probably suffered enough and (2) the bottom line is they are both added sugars. (Of note, a push to add a special line on Nutrition Facts labels for “added sugars” has stalled.)
There is no shortage of confusing marketing terms and slogans in food advertising. Our reader did the right thing to scrutinize the label on the back of the syrup bottle. Before you select a grocery item from the shelf, make sure that the claims on the front of the packaging agree with the information on the back.
