No more production quota for isoglucose in Europe !
Yesterday I heard on the radio that Europe won’t have any quota anymore for isoglucose. Because I do have diabetes, I know a lot regarding sugars, but I had never heard of isoglucose. After googling it, I noticed it’s just High Fructose Corn Syrup (HFCS). Something I know, because I go often to the USA and almost all products do have HCFS. There is a difference between glucose, fructose. And do we need it ?
Is this a bad thing ? Personally I think it is. It’s a cheap way to create “sugar” but it’s not good for our health. Of course a lot of things are not good for our health. HFCS is made of corn, but it’s not natural ! Bio-diesel can also be made out of corn and that is also something you don’t want in your lemonade.
Monsanto is used frequently for the corn. I don’t like the products of them and the politics behind it. The product can’t be good to humans and why use this corn in products when it’s “poisoned” with the products ? This is my personal view. The FDA (Food and Drug Adminstration) claims that HFCS is “Generally regarded As Safe”.
Why was there an European production quota on it ? Well. The answer doesn’t matter. ISOGLUCOSE or HFCS will be available in a lot of european food products. It will be a problem and a lot of persons will be having obesity.
Food producers are saying that it’s not easy to change from sugars to isoglucose, but when they can make a lot of money, they will change ! Hopefully the isoglucose will be made in Europe in a biological way. Still not good, but at least it’s not very bad.
Here is a nice video which explain a bit about sugars, fructose, glucose etc. :
