Well it is not made out of plastic and even if you find Certified Organic, it is a concentrated sugar and not healthy consumed in any large quantity.
There is much engagement of weather is just as unhealthy as other types of sugars with many believing it is more unhealthy than granulated sugar.

its a sweetener and is not healthy, just like regular white granulated sugar is not healhty.
AND I am sure somewhere there is organic HFCS but generally no. Its made from corn.

it can be produced organically, but you can assume that it is not when you read it as an ingredient. As for healthy, it is pretty much on par with other sugars. glucose is a slightly simpler sugar that is more readily converted into energy, while fructose is more readily converted into fat reserves. both are very prevalent in all sorts of food. fruit actually has fructose as well.

It's a unnecessary sweetener that cocompanies use instead of sugar because it's cheaper. Studies show consuming large amounts of fructose corn syrup damages your live.

What is American fructose corn syrup?
- dewcoonsLv 72 months ago
There are hundreds of different companies in the US that process fructose corn syrup. Some use organic ingredients. Others do not.
Most of the food items made with fructose corn syrup use it because it is cheap. They are not going to spend the money to get organic corn syrup. They are going to use the cheapest junk on the market.
It is debatable is ANY fructose corn syrup is "healthy" - organic or not.
