What’s wrong with high fructose corn syrup? Well, apparently a lot of it is made using a process that involves the use of mercury, and we’re now learning that the mercury can make its way into the product. When that happens, it’s a similar situation to contaminated peanut butter. The product can be used in so many other food products that it can become a difficult and complicated task to find out for sure if a given food item is contaminated or not.
You can believe what you want about the nutritional value of corn syrup or peanut butter. Keep in mind that neither salmonella nor mercury is “healthy in moderation.”
