The Downfall of High Fructose Corn Syrup (HFCS)
New To Keto But Want To Grow Your Knowledge?
More specifically, you want help with The Downfall of High Fructose Corn Syrup (HFCS)?
let’s talk about the downfall of
high-fructose corn syrup it’s been a real popular sweetener for
the last thirty years in fact in 1980 an average American was consuming about 20
pounds of it per year and then it spiked in in year 2000 the 61 pounds and then
in 2015 went down to 39 and if I’m not mistaken
in the last couple of years it’s even downtrending from that point in fact
quite a few companies are making the shift from high fructose corn syrup to
different forms of sugar unfortunately PepsiCo Snapple Pizza Hut
Kraft Foods and there’s actually a really long list of companies that are
moving away from high-fructose corn syrup
the problem with high-fructose corn syrup is that we have 53% glucose then
we have 42% fructose and the rest of it is different types of sugars and the
problem is this fructose right here does some serious damage to your liver all of
your cells have receptors for glucose but not fructose only the liver has
these receptors to break down fructose if you’re consuming a lot of fructose
what’s gonna happen is you’re gonna overload the liver and you’re gonna
create all sorts of problems with insulin resistance a fatty liver
eventual cirrhosis so fructose is very unhealthy for the liver
now with ironic is sucrose table sugar is 50/50 roughly glucose and fructose so
table sugar from my viewpoint is also very very unhealthy because it has a lot
of fructose fructose is the fastest way to fatten up your liver and your gut
but also the way that they make high fructose corn syrup is in a lab and it comes
from corn starch okay and corn is GML now cane sugar is not GMO but beet sugar
and by the way there’s a tremendous amount of beet sugar still being sold
and that’s GMO unfortunately so you’re getting that added glyphosate
that herbicide at least with cane sugar to my knowledge you’re not getting that
extra added chemical glyphosate anyway the awareness of sugar as well as high
fructose corn syrup over the last few years is creating a really good
awareness and because a lot of companies are going sugar-free they’re using
stevia and they’re slowly going away from this sugar and definitely the high
fructose corn syrup now this is interesting in the 70s versus nowadays
okay there has actually been a decrease by 44% in the consumption of milk if you
compare these two time periods for beef it has gone down by 33% cheese has gone
up by a hundred and ninety-three percent that’s interesting and then we have
yogurt check this out in the 70s versus now it is spiked nearly 1,600 percent
unfortunately it’s probably not the plain yogurt that we’re talking about
it’s we’re talking about the sweetened yogurt there’s so much extra added sugar
in yogurt it’s not really a healthy product and then we get grains okay so
an increase by 12.7% okay and check this out
corn between the 70’s and present we have a spike of a hundred and eighty
percent increase in the consumption of corn products but look at the corn
sweeteners we had a spike of over 300% now realize recently that has come down
considerably but I had a difficult time finding the different types of corn
sweeteners because you have high fructose corn syrup and then you also
have corn syrup very different because corn syrup is a hundred percent glucose
okay whereas high produce corn syrup is a combination so I still have not found
that data but all I’m going to say is that this has been a significant impact
on obesity from my personal opinion and we have chicken look at this beef has
drop by 33% the chicken has increased by a hundred and ten percent people are
consuming more chicken because they think it’s healthier I’m gonna put a
video on chicken down below you should check it out if you haven’t seen it
chicken is definitely not very healthy now we get to this interesting vegetable
oils right which are basically seed oils corn oil canola oil soy oil cottonseed
oil they’re all GMO that is spiked 270 percent from my opinion this has created
a huge problem in our guts and our livers and inflammation in actually
gaining weight in cardiovascular health I’m gonna save this for a different
video and then soy which we’re including the soy protein isolates which is in a
lot of so called keto friendly food that is by 190 percent from these two time
periods so overall the good news is that sugar
gradually is on its way out it’s never gonna go out completely but it’s
definitely declining and personally I think it’s because of the great
awareness on the ketogenic diet if you want to check out the video on chicken
meat check it out I put it right here

In this video, we’re going to talk about the downfall of high fructose corn syrup. High fructose corn syrup has been a very popular sweetener for the past 30 years. In 1980 an average American was consuming about 20 pounds of high fructose corn syrup. The consumption of high fructose corn syrup spiked in the year 2000 to 61 pounds, and by 2015 it was down again to 39 pounds. Many different companies have been making the shift from high fructose corn syrup to other forms of sugar.
The problem with high fructose corn syrup is that it is 53% glucose and 42% fructose—the rest is different types of sugars. The fructose can do some serious damage to the liver. All of your cells have receptors for glucose, but not fructose. Only your liver can break down fructose. If you consume a lot of fructose, you can overload the liver and create all sorts of health problems.
High fructose corn syrup is also made in a lab with cornstarch. Corn is GMO, so you’re getting that added glyphosate.
Thankfully, high fructose corn syrup and even sugar are becoming less popular. I think it has something to do with the awareness of the keto diet.
Consumption of different products in the 70’s versus present day:
• Milk — down 44%
• Beef — down 33%
• Cheese — up 193%
• Yogurt — up 1600%
