A study is claiming that high-fructose corn syrup is less likely to decrease one’s hunger. This means one is likely to keep eating even after the acquisition of calories.
This means one is going to get fat.
Glucose — which comes from starches and is mostly produced commercially from corn starch — does not appear to have this tendency as per the study.
The subjects of the study were given pure glucose and pure fructose.
High-fructose corn syrup contains about equal parts glucose and fructose as does table sugar so it would appear unlikely that table sugar (sucrose) is a safe substitute.
Traditional corn syrup would be mostly glucose.
The study was performed by Dr. Kathleen Page at the University of Southern California.
The Corn Refiners Association said the study doesn’t count because it wasn’t in a natural setting.
Fructose, by the way, is what naturally sweetens peaches, plums, berries and honey.
