Consumers Want Full Disclosure On Corn Syrup Content In Foods, Beverages

September 28, 2010: 10:38 AM EST

Consumers polled by market researcher Mintel said they are concerned about the controversial food additive high fructose corn syrup (HFCS), though sixty-four percent think HFCS is okay in moderation. Sixty-five percent believe food manufacturers or brands should disclose the HFCS content of foods and beverages. And 57 percent said the government should force companies to reveal HFCS content, while 44 percent said food retailers should enforce disclosure. Only 16 percent said HFCS content does not need to be revealed. Stung by all the bad press recently, the corn syrup industry has proposed changing the name of HFCS to “corn sugar.” Regardless, Mintel said, when it comes to HFCS, “the majority of Americans clearly want complete information that will help them make informed purchase decisions.”
