ABSTRACT
The article offers information on the name and contents of high-fructose corn syrup (HFCS) which makes it a sugar. It states that the Corn Refiners Association Inc. had filed a petition with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to change the name HFCS to corn syrup to avoid confusion among consumers. It says that HCFS is made from corn and is about 50-50 fructose and sucrose. It adds that HFCS is a refined sugar and should be consumed about 10% of daily calories in a diet.
