Sugar Lawsuit In California

A sweet lawsuit is being tried in Los Angeles this week.  Sugar producers are suing the makers of high fructose corn syrup.

The sugar folks want the corn people to stop saying their products are similar.  The issue is centered on the Corn Refiners Association advertising that claims high fructose corn syrup is “nutritionally the same as table sugar.”  The plaintiffs say sugar is a natural product while high fructose corn syrup is man-made and less healthy.  The sugar industry also says high fructose corn syrup is causing an obesity and diabetes epidemic.  However, the corn producers defend their advertising as “truthful speech.”  High fructose corn syrup is used in soft drinks, breads, cereal and other products.
