A tendency launched by the Aspartame change of name, maybe?

I know that when I buy products I always check the label to see if it includes HFCS and if it does it goes back on the shelf.

Never considered GMO sugar beets, I'll need to look that up.
Either way I buy C&H so i guess I avoid gmo, unless there is gmo sugar cane.
Hmmm seems the USDA in february 2011 partially deregulated gmo sugar beets, thank you for that tid bit.
If i can i avoid gmo altogether.edit on 8-5-2011 by g146541 because: The sweet spot
Many sweeteners, and products like candy and chocolate that contain them, can come from GMO sources. Look for organic and non-GMO sweeteners, candy and chocolate products made with 100% cane sugar, evaporated cane juice or organic sugar to avoid GM beet sugar, and watch out for soy lecithin in chocolates and corn syrup in candies.
May Contain GMO Ingredients:
Crystal Sugar (American Crystal)
Big Chief sugar (Michigan Sugar Company)
Equal GW sugar (Western Sugar)
Nutrasweet Pioneer sugar (Michigan Sugar Company)
White Satin sugar (Snake River/Amalgamated Sugar)
The sweetener aspartame is derived from GM microorganisms. It is also referred to as NutraSweet® and Equal® and is found in over 6,000 products, including soft drinks, gum, candy, desserts, yogurt, tabletop sweeteners, and some pharmaceuticals such as vitamins and sugar-free cough drops.
