High-Fructose Corn Syrup May Get a New Name

High-fructose corn syrup has rightfully gotten a bad rap. And those ridiculous ads showing families slurping down purple drink like it’s a perfectly healthy thing apparently have not done much to remove the stink from this product.

So now, in the spirit of ValuJet changing their name to AirTran (to make you forget about their crashes due to lax safety rules), and Andersen Consulting becoming Accenture (to erase the memory of their role in the ecomonic collapse), the Corn Refiners Association would like to change the name “high-fructose corn syrup” to “corn sugar.”

So buyers beware: if the FDA approves this move, remember to check any and all food labels for “corn sugar,” and avoid products made with it.
