    did mark just say corn syrup is "ok"

    In this post: Dear Mark: Superfoods, BCAAs and Fasted Training, Hot Sauce, and Three More Questions | Mark's Daily Apple

    Mark says corn syrup is OK. Wtf? He even says there that having a small amount of HFCS shouldn't be a problem. When did he change his mind on this?

    Here?

    One small note: corn syrup is different from high-fructose corn syrup, with the former being a more benign sweetener composed mostly of glucose rather than fructose. Limit both, but don’t feel the need to run shrieking from the room when plain ol’ corn syrup comes sauntering in.
    Well, he's always talked about 80/20. But I'm not eating that crap.

    i think what he's saying, if i'm reading it right, is that corn syrup isn't has bad as HFCS, and the amount that a person would encounter in a small amount of hot sauce isn't going to do any noticeable damage. those amounts are going to be negligible. i'm sure he wouldn't be making the same recommendation if someone was about to start putting commercial bbq sauce on everything.

    Hardly an endorsement.

    From Mark's article that you referenced:

    "One small note: corn syrup is different from high-fructose corn syrup, with the former being a more benign sweetener composed mostly of glucose rather than fructose. Limit both, but don’t feel the need to run shrieking from the room when plain ol’ corn syrup comes sauntering in."

    I think he's just saying that you shouldn't eat a lot of it, but if you have a little bit here and there, there's no reason to stress out about it. I think that's a pretty wise attitude. A tiny bit of corn syrup won't ruin your health, but stressing over it will.

    Ya, I don't think he's saying that either is good, just that one is less bad than the other.

    Mark is clearly making corn syrup the base of his revised PB food pyramid. Dip your bacon in it, people.

    When somebody posts about the "Primal Corn-Syrup Diet" where you eat nothing but bacon dipped in corn syrup for 7+ days straight, I'm holding you responsible.

    I believe he is saying sriracha sauce is okay. If you can put enough sriracha on your food to make the corn syrup in it a problem, you've got an impressive skill. And probably a burning butt, too.

    You have to make sure that if you're on the Primal Corn Syrup Diet to supplement with plenty of iodine, after all...
