Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
How Smart Cafeterias Could Fight Childhood Obesity
The Atlantic - 10/26/2010.
By David R. Just and Brian Wansink – How do people celebrate National School Lunch week? If you asked around, you'd never hear of any parties or parades – all you'd hear are laughs. Even though over 30 million children are fed by the National School Lunch Program, school lunches are bullied daily by critics, activists, and celebrity chefs and blamed for contributing to childhood obesity.
What a ‘sweet surprise’! HFCS contains more fructose than believed
Grist - 10/26/2010.
By Tom Laskawy – One of industry's main arguments against critics' targeting high-fructose corn syrup (HFCS) as Public Health Enemy No. 1 has been that HFCS and table sugar are chemically similar. … Now it turns out that the actual amount of fructose in HFCS in particular food products has never been officially disclosed, just assumed. And that assumption, much to the surprise of even the biggest HFCS-is-bad skeptics, has just been proven way off.
