Did You Know...

The simple sugar fructose can be found in corn and is one of the most highly processed sugars.
If corn has been used as the sweetening source of a food product it will be listed under the ingredients section of the food label as High Fructose Corn Syrup (HFCS). HFCS began as kernels of corn and then went through a processing plant to become chemically altered to produce this artificial sweetener. One bushel of corn will sweeten more than 400 cans of soda. Farmers can grow corn on every continent except Antarctica.

HFCS is used to sweeten sodas, cakes, cookies and many candy products.
