Quick Quiz - Processed and Fried Foods
(Just learned this today)

What is the most prevalent ingredient in processed and fried foods?

Trans fats? Fats? Salt? :confused:

In the form of high fructose corn syrup and/or corn oil.

And the follow up question...

What's considered the most sugary, unhealthy grain on the planet...???

I'll bet soybean oil is a close second to corn in the realm of dubious "vegetable oils."

I love corn. I know how bad it is as a veggie, but it works well with so many dishes. Not to mention, there's not much better than a teryiaky pork tenderloin grilled up, with a fire grilled corn cob, slathered with butter, salt, pepper, and paprika... and a cold beer to wash it all down..

^^That's not good stuff, it bypasses the satiation feeling or something of that nature which means the body does not know it's been/being fed and that's where the overeating and weight gain starts. I did read a pdf and study on it but can't remember the exact details, only that it's best avoided which is enough for me to know.

They don't use it so much in the UK, we're still at the "sugar" stage, I think. For example, our cola has added sugar and no corn syrup as of yet.

LOL, I love trying to tell my parents how to diet, Ill be like "you need a balance of protein, carbs, and fats" Someone usually says, "so for carbs you mean like potatoes right?"..."more like veggies mom". "Ahhhh, so corn!?!"
