ABSTRACT
The article reports on a petition by the Corn Refiners Association based in Washington, D.C. to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to change the change for high-fructose corn syrup to "corn sugar." It explains that high-fructose corn syrup does not contain more fructose than table sugar, and that its name was made to distinguish the product from regular corn syrup. It also notes that the product tends to be inaccurately associated with obesity and other related illnesses in the minds of consumers because it can be found in high-calorie foods.
