If you believe that, I have a bridge I can sell you! That stuff is dangerous, and there is MUCH evidence to back up what I'm saying. Eat it at your own risk.

Wine is the food that completes the meal.

I do believe the first line was a little uncalled for. I don't believe just one news report, I only posted one report, there are many. There are studies both for and against but in 2008 the FDA re-evaluated corn syrup and found that, as with a lot of things, in moderation it is safe. The way things are done now, are not the way they were done years ago. The refining processes have changed which older studies will not account for. The FDA re-evaluates things often and some pass and some fail. Look at peanut butter. For years we never feared it, now it's got serious issues and the processing is going to have to change.

I won't bother to list all the articles I found, but like a lot of things in moderation it's okay.

Some of us choose not to eat additives, manufactured foods that don't occur in nature (such as high fructose corn syrup), artificial colorings, and the like, even though deemed safe by some researchers. Beyond that, it's a matter of taste -- I generally prefer things made from scratch to stuff that comes in a box or can.

Anyway, this is all off the subject. Let's stay on track. This isn't about the safety of food additives, it's about canned stuffing. Let's not get off topic.

Let's get back on track. If the OP's question has been answered, great. If anyone has anything to add to the original topic please feel free.

If anyone wants to start a civil conversation about food additives please do so in another thread.
