Sugar sues high fructose corn syrup

False advertising is the basis for sugar’s suit

It’s a battle between two evils: sugar and high fructose corn syrup. But who will taste the sweetness of victory? That question will be answered in a lawsuit that goes before a federal judge in Los Angeles tomorrow.

In that suit, sugar producers are suing the corn industry for making what it says are false claims in high fructose corn syrup ads. Specifically, sugar producers say claims such as high fructose corn syrup is “nutritionally the same as table sugar” and that “your body can’t tell the difference” are inaccurate.
