The sugar wars,as it is called.
HFCS is cheaper to use in products then sugar.
That is why they made the switch.
And because of this switch,it has lead to huge health problems.
Why do you think the obesity levels have increased and the health issues?
But my relatives,a big farming community in Iowa with nothing but corn,are loving this switch.
I ,for one am not.

Well, the stuff I get that my family makes is made in their own backyard in a sugarhouse with sap harvested from their own trees, so I can only speak for the syrup I get from them and they don't use any chemicals and they don't process it. All they do is boil the sap down into syrup and then bottle it.
If I had to choose between the fake stuff in a plastic bottle and the pure syrup I get from them, I choose the latter. my only point was that it's better for you than HFCS or the fake processed maple flavored stuff.
