HealthBites: More HFCS Facts
Results from an expert review of the research on high fructose corn syrup (HFCS) found insufficient support for the notion that high fructose corn syrup could play a unique causal role in obesity. The expert panel led by Richard Forshee, Ph.D. of the University of Maryland Center for Food, Nutrition, and Agriculture Policy concluded that “the currently available evidence is insufficient to implicate HFCS per se as a causal factor in the overweight and obesity problem in the United States.” The panel’s report was published in Critical Reviews in Food Science and Nutrition. This study adds confirmation that HFCS  does not differ from regular table sugar in its effects on people's appetite and food intake later in the day and backs up an earlier study, published in the journal Nutrition, which found no difference in the way the bodies of lean women metabolized HFCS versus sucrose (table sugar).
