A new Fav Blog, AND a new role model! She is giving up all corn products!

Seriously corn is in almost ALL of the food we eat…. Greatly due to the subsidies corn farming has received in the US. Did you know Heinz Ketchup and most sodas, juices , etc.  in Canada do NOT contain HFCS???? Why? Because they don’t have incentive to grow as much corn as we do here in the old US of  C, uh I mean A…

Below is a list of SOME common names for corn derived ingredients…

Ascorbic acid (Vitamin C)

Aspartame

Caramel Color

Bolded list was taken from July 14, 3:42 PMAustin Food ExaminerJustine Cuny.    Thank you to Justine for helping to inform the public!

This is NOT a complete list…

So. MY challenge is this, go to your kitchen and look for these ingredients. What items DON’T have some form of  corn in them. Corn is linked to obesity, has little nutritional value in it’s purest form compared to other fruits and veggies, and is ALMOST ALWAYS made from GMO corn. I avoid GMO’s like the plague I believe them to be….

The only corn products I like, are corn fed boys! ;~p
