The FDA’s New Ruling

I received this news release shortly after I posted last week’s Budget Smart Cook article about what to look for when you’re reading labels and thought I’d pass along this information to you.
The FDA has recently acknowledged that products containing high fructose corn syrup (HFCS) can’t be considered ‘natural’ and shouldn’t be labeled as such.
Lots of products…including sodas children seem to love do contain high fructose corn syrup. So read the label carefully, and if it’s one of the top ingredients, don’t waste your money.
The news release did list some food products that are free of HFCS. As they seem to fit into the snack food category…and I know lots of you are looking for healthful snacks to buy, here are some products to look for-
Hansen’s Natural Soda and Sparkling Refreshment
Skippy Peanut Butter
Smucker’s Organic Grape Jelly
Hershey’s Symphony and Skor Bars
Dannon All Natural Vanilla Yogurt
Nature Valley Roasted Nut Crunch Bars
