Understand High Fructose Corn Syrup?

How can foods be labeled "All Natural" when a main ingredient is high fructose corn syrup? Read Britt Bravo's great recent post about this here: "When is Natural Food Natural?"

One of her readers offered these excellent links with more resources on understanding corn syrup:

Shaping Youth's counter-marketing campaign on Capri Sun ("liquid candy")
UCSF scientific article on the scary effects of fast food and high fructose corn syrup
Food Facts list of foods that contain high fructose corn syrup
Accidental Hedonist posts about high fructose corn syrup

And read this article about the Farm bill and corn subsidies from the SF Chronicle today:
The New Food Crusade

Abby, I just found your link to our Shaping Youth blog and was SO excited to hear you're locally based in the Bay area!

I'm the one that plopped the links into Britt Bravo's blog comments (per your post above) and ironically, I'm working on a piece right now about Ratatouille being a wonderful messaging medium to encourage healthy eating, and was looking for some gardening/kids orgs to bounce some ideas off of! Would love to speak with you on this further, and also see how we might team up on future projects/align.

As you can see if you click on our "childhood obesity" category, I run counter-marketing programs (high risk/low income youth as well as elem/middle/HS 'train the trainer' media literacy) and we received a mini-grant from the SF Foundation too, so there's lots of overlap & mutual interest here!!


I'd love to continue this chat via phone if you have a sec, and swap some resources...Meanwhile, here are some other posts of ours that you (& your readers) might like in the food realm...

There are tons, but this'll get you started! Anxious to connect our missions on behalf of kids! Best, Amy--founder ShapingYouth.org
