Is High Fructose Corn Syrup Hiding in Your Bread?

March 27, 2015 5:03 pm

By now, most people know that high fructose corn syrup can be detrimental in large doses. This artificial sweetener can contribute to numerous health problems that include slow metabolism and diabetes. Here are two surprising sources of high fructose corn syrup that you should watch out for:

  1. Nutrition bars. You might be compelled to snack on a so-called nutrition bar for a healthy snack, but look carefully at the labels. Many contain high fructose corn syrup. Look for brands that are organic or raw to avoid too many processed ingredients.
  2. Breads. You might be in the clear if you are already limiting your carb intake, but be sure to select natural bread options if it is part of your diet. Processed sweeteners are included in many brands.
