Health-conscious people are warned about high-fructose corn syrup (HFCS), and for good reason. Consuming a food with HFCS will unfortunately never leave you feeling full; this is because the fructose actually turns off the receptors in your brain that acknowledge food. Additionally, HFCS does not wake up your pancreas to produce insulin, instead once you consume some it is quickly turned to into fat. The blood-sugar complications associated with HFCS include issues like depression, fatigue, weight gain, even ADD/ADHD.
For the sake of your health, avoid high-fructose corn syrup as often as possible. Honey, agave and Stevia (an herbal leaf plant) provide healthier and equally-as-sweet alternatives.
