And with the corn syrup, it is the chemicals that are used that make it unacceptable as an additive to Americans and the foods that it is used in to provide a cheap way of added sweetener.
Corn is on my no no list. Aside from the hight carb content in its natural state, I can't digest the skins on the kernals. And I so dealy love corn chowder. One of my favorite foods. I am a label reader. Have to be. The food industry loves to sneak that pesky corn syrup into their products. As a diabetic, I have to watch for that. I also love white grits with cheese and an egg on top. Don't eat that too often either along with corn muffins. In fact 'corn' anything. Have to stop and think before I do.
It's always interesting to hear how people from other countries enjoy the same products. We use similar ingredients but turn them into something completely different.
I eat my pap with cheese and a fried egg on top too
Even halfway across the world people can still have the same taste!
