The food industry knows that people are catching on that corn syrup in everything we eat is bad for us and that High Fructose Corn Syrup is not something we want to eat anymore. Food products are now starting to label foods as "No High Fructose Corn Syrup" but are placing different variants of corn syrup in the product. So instead of High Fructose Corn Syrup we get High Maltose Corn Syrup, which is not any better. The average consumer is being duped into thinking their foods do not have corn syrup, but they do.

This MUST stop!

Stop allowing the confusing labeling of foods with corn syrup. Consumers are being misinformed purposely by major food production companies. Consumers are no longer interested in having a majority of their foods be primarily crafted from unnatural goods. Foods are being packaged with labeling that is proudly presenting itself to be "Free of High Fructose Corn Syrup," but is hiding other variations of corn syrup within that same product.

We would like simple labels for our food. All we want to know is if our food does or does not have any variation of corn syrup in it. If we don't want one corn syrup, we don't want any.
