Landmark NBC News Nutrition Report: 'There Is Indeed Little Difference Between High Fructose Corn Syrup and Table Sugar'
Date:4/23/2009

Harvard Obesity Researcher: High fructose corn syrup 'misunderstood'

WASHINGTON, April 23 /PRNewswire/ -- Last night, NBC Nightly News with Brian Williams ran a report, "The sweet truth about high fructose corn syrup," by Chief Science Correspondent Robert Bazell. In the report, Mr. Bazell noted, "Top nutrition scientists say there is indeed little difference between the two products." (http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/21134540/vp/30355093#30355093)

In commenting on the NBC story, Audrae Erickson, president, Corn Refiners Association concluded, "This NBC Nightly News story sheds the light of day on an important health and nutrition matter for American consumers. There is no nutritional difference between high fructose corn syrup and sugar. A sugar is a sugar. It is the calories that count."

David S. Ludwig, M.D., Ph.D., Associate Professor of Pediatrics, Harvard Medical School, stated in the NBC report, "High fructose corn syrup is one of the most misunderstood products in the food supply."

"NBC got the facts right. Americans save millions of dollars every year because corn-based sweeteners are more economical to produce, while providing superior functionality in foods. In this economy, every little bit helps," reaffirmed Erickson.

In 2008, the American Medical Association said, "After studying current research, the American Medical Association concluded that high fructose syrup does not appear to contribute more to obesity than other caloric sweeteners..." (American Medical Association. June 17, 2008. Press Release: AMA finds high fructose syrup unlikely to be more harmful to health than other caloric sweeteners http://www.sweetsurprise.com/sites/default/files/AMARelease6-17-08.pdf

Additionally, the American Dietetic Association (ADA) concluded that "No persuasive evidence supports the claim that high fructose corn syrup is a unique contributor to obesity."
