Inspired by a list maintained at Accidental Hedonist, I've compiled this list of items from popular fast food restaurants that contain High Fructose Corn Syrup.
The list currently includes items containing High Fructose Corn Syrup from the following fast food restaurants: Arby's, Blimpie, Burger King, Chick-fil-a, Dairy Queen, Jack in the Box, KFC, McDonald's, Subway, Taco Bell, and Whataburger. More will be added as the data is collected.
High fructose corn syrup (HFCS) is corn syrup that has been modified to increase the level of fructose. It has become a popular topic in the discussion of obesity in America. The reason for concern, is that HFCS consumption has increased dramatically since the 1970s when it was developed and so has obesity. It has not been proven that there is a link, but the average American consumed 39 pounds of HFCS in 1980 and 62.6 pounds in 2001.
So, if you're concerned about HFCS in fast food, now you can check the list. I hope it helps. I'm also working on gluten-free and hydrogenated oil lists for fast food.
