No "sugar" added?

FDA has ruled that soft-drink makers may not list sugar as a possible ingredient when high-fructose corn syrup is the primary sweetener used, reports Supermarket News. FDA rejected the industry’s request to use “and/or” labeling. Beverage makers argued that it would be impractical to create the different can versions required.

According to the FDA, major manufacturers stopped using sugar in the mid-1980s. No action was taken against soft-drink makers that use “and/or” labeling up to now because the rulemaking was pending. The Sugar Association cheered the decision.
