Corn Refiners Caution Consumers About Retro Sodas Containing Cane Sugar

January 11, 2010: 07:55 AM EST
Although they are apparently a hit among consumers who have tried them, new cane sugar versions of Pepsi, Mountain Dew, and Dr. Pepper, complete with retro packaging, have got national corn refiners hopping mad. The refiners, of course, are the main promoters of high fructose corn syrup, which, they say, has the same nutritional value as refined sugar. They are warning consumers that ads claiming that cane sugar is better for you are just plain false. “Consumers should not be misled by marketing gimmicks,” said a corn refiners association spokesman. “They’re both identical on how the body handles them.”
