HFCS and PHO, Thy Names Be Mud!

High fructose corn syrup, or corn sugar as the Corn Refiner's Association likes to call it, is horrible for you. It is hard to stay away from since it's in everything, but it can be done. Check out this awesome article about HFCS from one of my favorite blogs, The Picky Eater:  A Healthy Food BlogClick here to read Picky Eater's article. It make HFCS easy to understand.

 I try to stay away with most things too that have "partially hydrogenated" oils in them.  These oils are heated till they are a partial solid. They, too, are in many many products. This article from Eric Armstrong is a great one that explains PHO in a nutshell. Read and be informed, for knowledge is power. The more you know, the more equipped you are to make better and better decisions...especially regarding your health.
