I’m busy tonight with a hairy data conversion for one of my software clients, so this is a short post.
I don’t know if this is pathetic, funny, a positive sign, or a combination of all three: The makers of Karo corn syrup would like you to know that their product doesn’t contain any high fructose corn syrup.
I found this photo while going over my collection from Christmas. My mom had a bottle of this stuff in her kitchen, apparently to put in some kind of Christmas dessert I didn’t eat. (If memory serves, we used to put dark Karo syrup on our waffles during my sugar-laden childhood.)
In case you’re wondering about the difference, high fructose corn syrup undergoes an extra step in which enzymes convert more of the glucose from the corn into fructose to make it sweeter.
I recommend you avoid corn syrup of either variety.
