A study done last year by Mintel Research Consultancy that’s been making the rounds this week indicates that most people aren’t worried about high fructose corn syrup (HCFS). 2005 grocery shoppers were asked about what they searched for when reading labels:
- 38% read labels to check for fats & oils
- 37% checked for calories
- 26% checked for salt/sodium
- 25% checked for added sugars/sugar content
- Only 3% checked for HFCS.
What the what?
What are you checking for when you read labels?
