PostSubject: Question - Other names for HFCS?   Thu Jun 05, 2008 8:00 am

Does anyone have any links/info on other names used for HFCS? I believe I read on the Accidental Hedonist list that crystalline fructose is a form of HFCS. I will try to do some reasearch on that in the coming weeks, but if anyone has that information lurking somewhere I think it would be very beneficial to know what else we should be looking for.

Thanks!!

Lisa

That is a real good question. I've seen different answers. I will try to contact CSU's nutrition department to see if we can track down a reputable answer.

Thanks for asking.

hello all! i stumbled across this website. These are just a few names, i'm sure there are many many more!

"High fructose corn syrup is hidden by food and beverage manufacturers under many names. Some of these names are: chicory, inulin, iso glucose, glucose-fructose syrup, and fruit fructose. "

I've also been told to look out for: Dextrose (or derivatives) and corn syrup. Isogluclose is the name for HFSC in Europe.

And one of these names I think I did find on the Accidental Hedonist!

Thanks Clareo,

I'm bummed to find out it's in European food. I was under the impression that the EU won't allow GMO's and they consider HFCS a GMO.

Just making sure--so when you post a food as not having any HFCS, you mean it does not have the ingredients with other names that mean HFCS? Such as what DreamsNeverEnd13 wrote,

Thanks

Hi Susan,

Sadly no. I'm only checking for HFCS on the label. Plus I'm assuming if a product states, No HFCS, on it's label, that the others are excluded from the ingredients as well.

I will try to re-read the labels while looking for the other names. Maybe I can asterisk the products that have been thoroughly vetted.

According to Wikipedia, chickory may or may not be evil:

Quote :
Around 1970 it was found that the root contains up to 20% inulin, a polysaccharide similar to starch. Since then, new strains have been created, giving root chicory an inulin content comparable to that of sugar beet (around 600 dt/ha). Inulin is mainly found in the plant family Asteraceae as a storage carbohydrate (for example Jerusalem artichoke, dahlia etc.). It is used as a sweetener in the food industry (with a sweetening power 30% higher than that of sucrose) and is sometimes added to yogurts as a prebiotic. Inulin can be converted to fructose and glucose through hydrolysis. Inulin is also gaining popularity as a source of soluble dietary fibre.

But other parts of the plant are used for other things, like the chickory in some coffees (Louisianne ? brand has chickory) and sometimes the leafy tops are used, such as radiccio)
