"Out, damned spot! out, I say!"

HEY DID YOU KNOW that high fructose corn syrup is in everything!!!

it is in damn low call low sugar YOPLAIT YOGURT!!! with the effing bestlife seal of approval from Oprah! not that that is a real seal or anything. But they duped them as well. effing yoplait bastards.

DAMMIT!!! those yoplait bastards, but what I am really upset about is it is in my tomato soup! My Campbells Tomato soup, My soup is good food soup!!! DAMMIT!!!

Well it will not be in the future because even though most of the time I am too lazy to make it I make great tomato bisque that IS NOT LACED WITH POISON!!!

well it is poison to me anyway. So I am really trying to stay away from pop, even diet, because that has been linked to some stuff that I am seriously working to avoid, diabetes and heart disease, and no more yoplait, and no more tomato soup, and reading labels for ingredients now to avoid the HFC. Matt told me it was in everything and I thought I am pretty careful. those sneaky effers at yoplait!
So it has been a couple of days since I cut those two things out and because I kind of really keep up with my weight mostly for the HAE which can move my weight really fast and sometimes is the first sign of an attack, I have lost two pounds.

HFC begone from my sight (and diet) you sicken me(really).

I bought some Whole Wheat buns the other night, and the 3rd ingredient was HFC! And of course the packaging had the good for your heart type of graphics on it...

Another thing you may not know about some of the Yoplait yogurts...the natural red coloring...

I am a little bitter about this, I loved that yoplait, well of course I did, it has crack in it, ok it doesn't but it might as well.

Definitely check your bread. I noticed it was in all the breads on the supermarket shelf except Pepperidge Farms.

as a triathlete, i've tried forever to cut all the high fructose corn syrup out of my diet ... which is a really great way to drop fat-pounds FAST. but as you've noticed, it IS in everything. and you even spotted the worse place to find it ... YOGURT! it's just not right.

here's some advice: when buying yogurt you should never buy the low fat, low cal variety. ALWAYS buy regular yogurt, w/ or without fruit, make sure it's NOT low fat, or low cal ... Men's Health reports that the "low fat, low cal" is a ploy to sell more yogurt, and you actually need the dairy fats (which contains all the healthy amino acids) to help you to build muscle and burn fat.

and if you're trying to cut out gluten, avoid soy sauce and all soy products like the plague; they're by far the worse for gluten.

My German brain(admitting it might not be the biggest) still doesn't understand, why there has to be sweetener in yogurt or bred?????
I grew up on yogurt without sugar. It was NOT low-fat, but it tasted GOOD.
BREAD, don't even get me started, or I might start drool on the key-board.
Have you ever considered making your own bread?

I do make bread on occasion and in fact I make yogurt, I am lebanese and as a kid plain homemade yogurt was a staple in the house, so I do not even need the fruit or the sugar, so I am never getting that again, I have found a nice one at Ideal Grocery, I think it may be as good as home made, so I am going to stick with it, when I am too lazy to make my own, and I never avoid fats, just try to keep the numbers normal most days, because I also have hoshimotos thyroiditis and you need those cholesterol rings on the molecular level. But that is it for me... so far, just the HAE and hoshimotos, and crazy launch myself from my bike skilz. I actually buy the pepperidge bread already, I was just stunned about the yogurt, I thought splenda was its only sweetner. Matt was right and it is everywhere, and in my next life, when I am really tall and really slender I will not worry about it like Cornbread and my boy Emory. For now I am happy it is not in my special K, but you have to watch it, some of the special K has it, but not the original. but do you beleive it is in their carb freedom one. How the hell is it in a carb freedom product, that just does not make sense.

I have Celiac Disease and can't eat HFC because gluten is used in the processing of it. I eat almost nothing that is processed. Gluten can be used in the processing and not be listed as an ingredient. Ironic that my father helped develop the process for making HFC back in the late 60's/early 70's. He worked as a Food Processing Engineer. He always laughs at products that say they have all natural ingredients and have HFC. He says HFC is so altered during the processing that it is no longer a natural product. Growing up my parents never let us kids drink pop or eat food with HFC.

WOW Doug that is amazing. I think it actually keeps me in a low grade HAE attack, and that is something I would just rather not, since it completely uses my reserve of C1 estrace inhibitor which for me is such a finite resource. It may not do that for everyone, but it seems to do it for me, other foods will trigger an attack as well, but as I dicover them I am just trying to eliminate them. I do not like it when my stomach hurts.
