There's this trend recently of products being marketed as free of high fructose corn syrup (HFCS), the name getting so stigmatized that the corn syrup manufacturers of the USA are trying to rebrand the product as "corn sugar". For some (rather vocal) folks, the very mention of HFCS elicits visceral reactions of disgust coupled with exhortations of the virtues of cane sugar.
But scientifically, any evidence linking health problems to specifically to the nature of HFCS vs cane sugar (sucrose) has been tenuous at best; unambiguously, the issue is in the total amount of sugar consumed in either form. Unfortunately, almost universally, processed products that advertise removal of HFCS continue to promote the consumption of high amounts of simple sugars, simply swapping out the form for a more expensive version.
But people see going to continue to preach about the better tasting sodas made with cane sugar (I suspect that blind tastings will demonstrate that most people cannot tell the difference), even though demonstrably, health benefits come from cutting down all sugary drinks. Artificial sweeteners are no panacea either - but that's a topic of another post.
