Organic Halloween Candy Without HIgh Fructose Corn Syrup October 13, 2009

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tiffany C @ 10:01 AM

OK, so you don’t want to tick off the trick-or-treaters, so what does an eco-friendly Halloween fan do?  Pass out organic candy.   There are more goodies available all the time.  Organic candy not only uses organic ingredients, but it also does NOT have high fructose corn syrup.  Check the labels in your kitchen.  This stuff is EVERYWHERE.  It’s a bit of a joke when the corn industry says high fructose corn syrup is “fine in moderation”.  HFCS is in most processed foods so it’s pretty hard to get HFCS in moderation.  Here are a few links.  One to the corn industries commercial.  The other links are the counter points to HFCSs safety.  If you can’t watch them all right now I hope you find time to watch them later.

Do yourself and your kids a favor and read labels.  Know what you’re putting into your family’s diet.
