Default Safe to ingest ?

After hearing about many people's negative reaction to *glucose-fructose
syrup* in the U.S.A., I was surprised to discover now in our local Tesco's
it's in: Jams, baked beans and biscuits; over here.

Am I being Paranoid ? Obviously the food manufacturers say no.

Let's put it this way. It may be completely safe, or it may be
disadvantageous for some persons (those who need to reduce their
fructose input). But it's definitely a sign the manufacturer
is cutting corners, so it's definitely not a sign of a good quality
product.

tert found this interesting article on how Americans' food consumption
has changed since the 1950s.

Along with whole milk consumption dropping by 75%, and egg consumption
dropping by a third, consumption of sugars has gone up 50%. I think
the problem is simple sugars, not HFCS vs. sucrose.

I find it difficult to believe that no one in the food industry had
any idea that the sugar they were using made people eat more than they
otherwise would have.
