Citizens for Health Petitions FDA to Require Accurate High Fructose Corn Syrup Labeling
Citizens for Health is petitioning the Food & Drug Administration (FDA) to require food makers using HFCS to accurately label the percent of fructose in the ingredient. Currently, the FDA has only approved use of HFCS with a maximum fructose level of 55%, but it has been reported that HFCS with 65% fructose is turning up in mainstream sodas. One major company is even advertising a 90% fructose HFCS product for use in low calorie foods. These sweeteners with excessive amounts of fructose are not FDA approved. The CFH petition asks that the FDA require Proof of Safety in accordance with the food and drug law if these they are to remain on the market.
