Question High fructose syrup and Total protein cereal???

Hi,
I usually buy most of my food from Whole Foods market and used to buy my yogurt from there which is organic, but I tried all different kinds and none of them compared to my good old yoplait. I used to eat the fat free kind with aspartame before I made a conscious decision to eat healthier, and that goes for no sweetners. Plus, yogurt has that healthy bacteria in it called acidipholus which is beneficial to the intestines. Well, I really miss it and when I was shopping at wallmart tonight for other things like paper towels, ya know that stuff, I came across the aile where there was yogurts and found the kind that has sugar in it, 1.5 g of fat, and 27 g of sugar. Well, the organic kind had that much sugar in it too, soooo my question is.....The yoplait contains high fructose sugar in it and the organic kind doesn't and the grams of sugar are the same. Well here's really the question... What is so bad about high fructose sugar when sugar is sugar and both of these products carry the same amount of sugar grams??? Thanks.

Oh, and I also bought some Total protein cereal which is high in whey protein, and whey protein is good for you. I workout and figured it's better than buying shakes cause it's real FOOD, cause I don't eat alot of meat so I've been substituting with protein shakes. I know Losec....do you think that's bad?? ANyways, does any body buy that Total cereal that is high protein lower carbs? What do you think of it?

Re: High fructose syrup and Total protein cereal???

high fructose corn syrup is fructose I believe and not sucrose. The "organic" kind usually is sweetened with cane sugar, which is usually just refined sugar only they use words like "evaporated" in place of "refined". Most sugar comes from the cane crops. Neither of these two are good for you. I believe they started using high fructose corn syrup because it was cheaper and they thought it was healthier than sugar. I don't think it raises your blood sugar as much but I could be wrong. I don't think either of these choices are good for you, though the organic one would be favorable just because it doesn't have as much of the bad stuff that dairy has in it anyway.

Thanks Losec, I'm going to look into the mesa corn with flax that sounds good cause I like the flakes, I could only find RIce Twice at Whole foods and I don't like it. I'll look into the Libetry kind too, thanks alot.

FYI, the Total High Protein is the nastiest tasting stuff! I actually spit it out and threw the rest away.
