For reasons of health and to try to help with weight loss I am trying to avoid two things that seem to be ubiquitous these days: high fructose corn syrup and artificial sweetners. I was in the grocery store over the weekend and I was trying to buy bread. Nearly every brand/variety of commercially made bread had HFCS in it, even a few labeled as "all natural." I eventually found one within the "organic" line of a manufacturer whose other products all had HFCS. Why can't they just use a little sugar? Or, if it needs to be a liquid, use honey. I bake bread at home and I use honey. The HFCS and artificial sweetner avoidance is making it very hard for me to find a soda I can drink. I was used to drinking 2 12 oz. diet sodas a day. I like carbonated drinks. I guess I am going to have to start buying seltzer water and juice. Hmmm, maybe I can find a cola syrup and make my own when I need a fix. If you know of sodas that don't contain HFCS let me know. In addition, if you have any suggestions for manufacturers/product lines (not just soda, any products) that don't contain either HFCS or artificial sweetner leave a note in the comments.
