High Fructose Corn Syrup Press Releases | Corn Refiners Association [cached]

"The claims made in the USC paper were unfounded, and were off the mark in suggesting that high fructose corn syrup, or corn sugar, contains 'excess' fructose," said said Audrae Erickson, President of the Corn Refiners Association.

It exists in higher levels in a pear juice concentrate than what these researchers claim to have found in their study," said Audrae Erickson, President of the Corn Refiners Association. "Fructose is commonly found in many fruits and vegetables, as well as honey, maple syrup, processed sugars, and high fructose corn syrup or corn sugar."
"The researchers failed to disclose the presence of higher sugars, and completely overlooked the process of table sugar breaking down in Ph environments - called inversion. The results from this study cannot be taken seriously until they are confirmed or replicated by an independent body that is experienced in analyzing sugar content," continued Erickson.

The medical community has long dismissed results from rat dietary studies as being inapplicable to human beings," stated Audrae Erickson, president, Corn Refiners Association.
"Consumers should rest assured that high fructose corn syrup is safe. The American Medical Association concluded that high fructose corn syrup does not appear to contribute more to obesity than sugar. The American Dietetic Association stated that these two sweeteners are indistinguishable to the human body and are metabolized equivalently," Erickson noted.
"This study unnecessarily confuses consumers about human metabolism of common sugars in the diet. A sugar is a sugar whether it comes from cane, corn, or beets. Both sugar and high fructose corn syrup are handled the same by the body. No metabolic effects have been found in studies that compare sugar and high fructose corn syrup consumption in humans," concluded Erickson.

"This study appears to be based on outdated information of dubious significance," said Audrae Erickson, president of the Corn Refiners Association, in a statement.

This mention provoked a rapid response from Audrae Erickson, President of the Corn Refiner's Association in Washington, DC. This trade group represents the interests of the industry that makes high fructose corn syrup.

Below is my letter to the editor in response:
The September 16, 2005 issue of the Summit Daily News contains a short opinion piece by Audrae Erickson, the president of the corn refiners association in Washington, DC. Ms Erickson wrote in response to Dr. Justin Pollack's article on optimizing children's brains with nutrition that appeared just a few days prior on September 12.
Ms. Erickson took umbrage at Dr. Pollack's categorization of high fructose corn syrup as "bad stuff" that should be minimized in a child's diet.
When Ms. Erickson suggests that honey and high fructose corn syrup have the same effect in the human body, she is incorrect. In a study published in 2004, volunteers were fed either a daily dose of honey or a mixture of glucose and fructose in the same proportions as found in honey for fifteen days. The honey moved cholesterol, triglycerides, insulin, c-reactive protein and other blood measurements in desirable healthy directions. In most instances the artificial honey sugar mixture made of high fructose corn syrup had the opposite effect. [v] Though there are chemical similarities to honey and high fructose corn syrup, the human body does not respond the same way to both substances. Honey appears to have a good effect and fructose a negative effect.
Ms. Erickson as a representative of the industry that makes high fructose corn syrup is paid to increase sales of fructose.
