CHICAGOMajor food manufacturers continue to reduce usage of high-fructose corn syrup (HFCS) amid consumer perceptions about the ingredient. Kraft foods, for instance, has reformulated popular products like Bulls-Eye barbecue sauce, select Capri Sun beverages and most of its salad dressings to completely remove HFCS. Kraft has also reformulated its Wheat Thins crackers, due on the market next week, removing HFCS and doubling the whole-grain content.
Other companies that have released new or reformulated products that eschew HFCS include PepsiCo and Starbucks.
Despite this trend, the Corn Refiners Association continues to step up educational efforts to communicate that HFCS and other corn sweeteners are no different than other sweeteners like honey and sugar.
