Corn Syrup Tries to Change its name

by on December 27, 2012

High Fructose Corn Syup with New Identity.article written by Beverly PresseyHigh fructose corn syrup (HFCS) is tired of being the evil demon of food. So the corn industry, which produces HFCS from corn, is trying to change the name to corn sugar. Sounds down-right healthy doesn’t it?

The FDA rejects this, as of summer 2012.

    Sadly, if your child is tube-fed, this is what constitutes the sole source of carbohydrates for your growing kiddo: corn sugar, corn syrup, etc. Unless you “go rogue” in the eyes of some and feed them a complete diet of healthy whole foods, blended and given via tube (including beans you mention in a post above 🙂

    • Thank you for reading and responding. It is not considered “going rougue” to feed a child with a g tube home blended formulas (real food blended to go through a g tube). It is endorsed by Children’s Hospital for most children if that is the families’ choice. If you are considering changing from a standard formula to a home blended one, see your nutritionist.

        Thanks for your response! We weaned from the tube over three years ago, but I am still involved with Children’s as they move to implement comprehensive feeding tube care and effective weaning incl. hunger induction. From my experience, Children’s was or was not supportive of blenderized diet depending on which particular nutritionist you spoke with. But glad to hear your response.
