High Fructose Corn Syrup Scorecard for 11/11/07

November 11th, 2007 . by admin

The last two weeks, I didn’t plan the grocery outing, so we ended up “outsourcing” more than I care to. Last week, I did a mid-week trip and brought home less than half of what I usually do. It was easy to avoid the dreaded substance.

This week, I did the full trip, with a bill to match. Out of the full week’s take, only three items contained high fructose corn syrup.

  • Publix Premium multi-grain bagels
  • Publix brand chocolate chunk granola bars
  • 2-liter bottle of Publix brand root beer

I can understand why it’s in the root beer, but granola bars and multi-grain bagels? Isn’t multi-grain anything supposed to be better for you?

For those of you outside of Florida, Publix is the leading grocery chain here. Many of their store-brand items are on-par with or exceed the quality of national brands. Their tagline is, “Where Shopping Is A Pleasure.” Publix Supermarkets are an oasis in a world where owners’ profits are more important than employee and customer satisfaction.
