We’ve been avoiding corn in our household since 2005 when our son started refusing corn foods and I found I had day-after migraine headaches whenever we had corn in our meals. Like we often do, we went EXTREME and also banned high-fructose corn syrup (HFCS).
There have been rumors and anecdotal evidence that HFCS was not good for you but many argue back that HFCS cannot be any worse than common sugar. However, a Princeton study released this week indicates that there is much to be concerned about HFCS in your diet: increased weight gain per calorie eaten, increased circulating triglyceride levels, etc.
At Autistry Studios meals we try to avoid serving HFCS soft drinks and we are increasingly pushing water and home-made sodas made with sparkling water + fruit juice.
