Re: “Greatest News Ever ... If You're a Soda Aficionado

As a registered dietitian, I concur that high fructose corn syrup is no different from sugar. They both have the same calories, are half fructose and half glucose, and the body cannot tell the difference. The key is to use BOTH sugar and high fructose corn syrup in moderation as part of a balanced diet with fruits, vegetables, grains, lean meats, low fat dairy and healthy fats. Sweetened foods like soft drinks and cookies are fine as long as they don't exceed your calorie needs or displace foods that help meet your nutritional requirements. Neva Cochran, MS, RD, LD
