High Fructose Corn Syrup
Assemble a variety of foods containing high fructose corn syrup and have the audience guess what these have in common
• Assemble a variety of foods containing high fructose corn syrup and have the audience guess what these have in common? The answer: high fructose corn syrup. Most foods with added sugar are calorie dense.
• A good quiz is to show 2% milk and 1% chocolate milk. Even though the chocolate milk has less fat, it has 50 more calories per cup (120 versus 170) because of the added sugar (high fructose corn syrup).
• Print the ingredient list from most fast food places (click on Food at the top and then Nutrition and then on the PDF file that lists the nutrition information for all ingredients) and have participants find and highlight the foods that contain it. It is the first ingredient on barbecue sauce and soft drinks. It is the second ingredient on chocolate milk. And it is listed in many of the salad dressings and frozen desserts.
