High Fructose Corn Syrup

"I will remind you all, Snapple also claims to 'have the best stuff on Earth' in their brand ... If the 'best stuff' includes harmful high intensity sweeteners, High Fructose Corn Syrup, that is NOT fruit sugar, or sugars, nor metabolized as such, and is a leading ingredient linked to cardio vascular disease, diabetes, hypoglycemia, some forms of cancer, and obesity, then 'best' has a whole knew meaning I was never taught."

This is incorrect. I checked Snapple's website and did not see a single product made with high fructose corn syrup. In fact, most of the products contained either sucralose or aspartame.

Clearly, therefore, you can drink Snapple products with confidence, knowing you won't be exposed to the dangers which come from ingesting high fructose corn syrup. Whew!

Well, I went to their site also and found at least two of their products contain high fructose corn syrup. Regardless, sucralose and aspartame are extremely bad for you as well. See other posts.
