>Cranberry Juice with High Fructose Corn Syrup

>Maybe you’ve seen the TV commercials for Ocean Spray Cranberry Juice with no sugar added. What they don’t tell you in that commercial is that they do sweeten their cranberry juice, not with sugar but with High Fructose Corn Syrup. Apparently nobody would drink a completely unsweetened cranberry juice cocktail.

I searched a little and so far this is the only video of the commercial I could find online. It’s not top quality but it’s watchable.

To know more about High Fructose Corn Syrup (HFCS) read this.
I don’t understand such commercials, we don’t add any sugar in it. Basically they’re saying that they don’t add sugar in order to make the juice better for you but they add HFCS. Is HFCS good for you? Is it better than sugar? What’s wrong with pure cane sugar? Its price maybe?

There are other brands out there that don’t use HFCS(or sugar) in their cranberry cocktails you might want to try them out if you are looking to cut back on the amount of HFCS in your diet.
