High Fructose Corn Syrup

High fructose corn syrup (HFCS)—also called glucose-fructose in Canada, Isoglucose or Glucose-Fructose syrup and high fructose maize syrup in some countries—comprises any of a group of corn syrups that has undergone enzymatic processing to convert some of its glucose into fructose to produce a desired sweetness.Due to US-imposed tariffs,[citation needed] in the United States sugar prices are 1.25 times higher than in the rest of the world, which makes HFCS cheaper, so that it is the principal sweetener used in processed foods and beverages. This trend does seem to be changing.
