In life, there are many occasions when the truth tends to be much stranger than reality. When it comes to the process that is being used by many of the National Food Supply Chain’s to produce much of America’s food and it’s beverages, it seems that the truth concerning the production process can sometimes be too troubling accept. If you are one of the people who fit into this specific category of people then I wish you warn you now ahead of time. What I am about to share with you here in this article is probably going to upset you. The one single component that approximately between sixty to eighty percent of the Nation’s food and beverage now all has in common is a single common additive known simply on the National food and beverage market as high fructose corn syrup. {{more}} The high fructose corn syrup additive can be found in just about any product sitting on grocery store shelves today. Everything from sports drinks all of the way down to common mayonnaise. The corn based additive usually typically serves as wide variety of different purposes. In some cases, it is used as a product sweetener and it is substituted for more common sweeteners like sugar or honey, for example. In other cases, it is added to expand the content volume of a product. Many of the National food and beverage companies market the high fructose corn syrup additive as being “natural,” and by doing so, typically the consumer is led to believe that health risks associated with consumption of the additive are generally either only minimal or altogether non-existent. My research showed me a darker side of the coin. High fructose corn syrup is a gooey substance. To the naked eye, it typically looks a lot like Vaseline but it behaves more similar to honey The truth appears to be that it is not so much only just an additive itself that may actually be responsible for a wide risk of potential health problems in customers who consume more than average amounts of products containing high fructose corn syrup, but it appears that the much greater potential danger to the consumer might actually be the wide variety of different chemicals being added into the products along with the high fructose corn syrup additive.
