6 Surprising Places You’ll Find High-Fructose Corn Syrup

With researchers making huge progress in determining what types of foods are best for the human body, consumers are making smarter decisions when they head to the grocery store. Whole grains and hormone-free dairy are gaining in popularity, but while these foods sound healthy, there’s a reason that you still really need to read the ingredient labels. Manufacturers are sneaking high-fructose corn syrup (HFCS)—an inexpensive sugar substitute that has been linked to higher risk of obesity and heart disease-- into everything they can.

1. Yogurt
It’s not surprising to read a candy bar label and see HFCS listed in the ingredients, but when you are grabbing a yogurt at lunch, you expect that you are eating something that is good for you and doesn’t contain harmful ingredients. Often times this is not the case. Many yogurts, particularly those that are fruit flavored, contain this sweetener. Just as there are many yogurts that do contain it, there are also many that don’t. Look for organic yogurt or carefully read the labels and you will find many delicious yogurt options that are free of HFCS.
