    HFCS is and has been a well-known "avoid at all costs" additive.

    It really is ****.

    Interesting links. Sorry for the hi-jack but...

    That second link lead me to SODIUM BENZOATE, BENZOIC ACID which got me thinking about Benzyl alcohol (BA) because it is used so often in the injectable formulas, especially steroids that bodybuilders use. So those links led me to the following:

    Carcinogenicity of benzyl acetate, benzyl alcohol, and benzaldehyde
    ...
    With benzyl alcohol, no treatment-related increase in tumours was observed in F344/N rats or B6C3F1 mice after administration of <400 mg/kg body weight per day in rats or <200 mg/kg body weight per day in mice by gavage in corn oil (US NTP, 1989).

    So THAT is good news.

    Reproductive toxicity doesn't appear too bad as well:

    Reproductive toxicity of benzyl acetate, benzyl alcohol, and benzaldehyde
    ...
    Benzyl alcohol at 550 mg/kg body weight per day by gavage on days 6-15 of pregnancy had no effect on gestation index, average number of live pups per litter, postnatal survival, or pup body weight on days 0 and 3 in CD-1 mice (York et al., 1986), while 750 mg/kg body weight per day (days 7-14) induced a reduction in the pup weight and maternal weight gain, but no pup mortality or changes in mating or gestation indices, the total number of resorptions, or the number of live pups per litter (Hardin et al., 1987).

    I wont eat anything with High Fructose Corn Syrup in it.

    While your at it... try to avoid anything with just plain 'sugar' on the label, as this is toxic for your body

    Even G2, gatorade's reduced calorie drink has HFCS in it. I wonder how in the hell gatorade sells as an athlete's drink when if you pay attention to what's in it it boils down to kool aid for big kids.

    Bc at the end of the day.. the product will sell because the advertising supports it.
    People will buy anything.. the DONT care whats in it. All it takes is a flashy ad with strong claims (or in gatorade's instance, a good reputation)...... sound familiar to bodybuilding ads and the big companies????

    Well, at least it may encourage you to use less.

    just watch out because I have found HFCS in a number of mustard products.

    I laugh when people have questions about what foods to eat
    my rules are:
    1. Is it fried or contain transfat or high sat fats
    2. Does it have HFCS or sugar (sugar is toxic to your body)
    3. Does it have more than 5 ingredients.
    4. Can i pronounce or recognize all (or most) of the ingredients.

    This will kick out 95% of the foods at the grocery store... makes it that much easier to know which ones are good.

    Not to be nit picky but I bought gnc whey 5lb tub for about 32 bucks with the little gold card that I had from last year.

    It isn't TOO bad of a price, plus it has bcaa's in it (~3.2g's of glutamine per scoop also). The chocolate tastes pretty good in water even for me, i'm sipping on it right now. The vanilla only tastes good in milk, and is barely drinkable in water.

    That being said, that's the only thing i'll buy from GNC anymore, IF that.

    I'm hoping to go with All The Whey, depending on how I like their sample flavors. I should be getting some soon.

    yep, forgot to type a good amount of bcaa's, hence the glutamine amount. I was rushing to finish posting before class

    It is funny to watch people prepare a salad then put 10 squeezes of "Fat-Free" dressing on it, and HFCS is the 2nd ingredient on the label, better off just to make your own dressing from a health standpoint.
    The increased usage of HFCS tracks the same graph line as the upswing in obesity in the last 25 years.

    Any whey protein that's rocking 1.5g of saturated fat, 40mg of cholesterol, 2g of sugars, and it only returning you 20g of protein....is one that you can keep for yourself man.
