I'm not really interested in people telling me HFCS is bad for you, because that fact is obvious. Processed sugar in general is high in carbohydrates and causes basically every problem the primal blue print aims to prevent or reverse.
I'm more interested in it's inherent qualities compared to that of regular sugar, or the sugar we find in fruit. We've recently learned that not all fats are created equal, given that trans fats are bad for us while "regular fats" are generally good for us. Can the same analogy be drawn with HFCS to table sugar?
Basically what I'm asking is that if I were to eat a teaspoon of HFCS would the detrimental health effects be no different than a teaspoon of regular old sugar?
As I understand it HFCS is basically a 50/50 blend of fructose and glucose, both of which occur naturally in things like fruit and honey. Is there a man made process that makes it worse, much like there is a man made process that makes trans fats worse?
Could someone shed some light on this for me? Where is Serial Sinner?
