Princeton University Study: High Fructose Corn Syrup Prompts Weight Gain

by Chris on March 25, 2010

Here is a study conducted by Princeton University researchers that I recently read. The study investigated the impacts of both high fructose corn syrup and basic sugar (sucrose) on weight gain in rats.

The short version is that even when the calories were equal, those subjects that had access to the high fructose corn syrup gained more weight than those with access to regular sugar.

Just more evidence to support that high fructose corn syrup is NOT the same as other sweeteners. Don’t believe the hype.
