I see online that yesterday was “No Brainer Day.” What this is supposed to mean exactly, I’m not sure, but I felt like taking a moment to set our readership straight on what I think is one of the bigger “no brainers” in agriculture today.

High Fructose Corn Syrup. It’s nutritionally no different than regular sugar. The end.

Instead of taking my word for it (because I’m not a nutritionist), and instead of listening to Michael Pollan (a journalist) or a TV commercial or some other less qualified source of information, listen to the professionals.

Don’t be confused by good marketing. Research shows that high fructose corn syrup is the same as sugar.

It’s a no brainer.
