HFCS stands for High Fructose Corn Syrup, which is a sugar syrup that has no vitamins, minerals, or nutrients needed to support good health. It’s often found in foods containing artificial colors and flavors, and is used to enhance texture and flavor – and to extend shelf life. Many salad dressings, ketchup, yogurt, soda, pasta sauces, and cereals contain HFCS. Read the label!
