Friday Food News

I’ve been trying to catch up on all the interesting food news this week—there’s certainly been a lot this week on genetically modified organisms (GMOs).  Here are some interesting stories for your Friday’s Food News:

  • If you haven’t already heard, the Corn Refiners Association is being sued by a group of sugar farmers and refiners over the potential name change from high fructose corn syrup to corn sugar.
  • Bisphenol A (BPA), a common chemical found in plastics, has been linked to neurological defects, diabetes, heart disease and cancer. A review of the studies done on BPA that showed the chemical was safe has now discovered that those studies were actually funded by the chemical and plastics industries, or conducted by those who benefited from these companies.
  • Think you know everything there is to know about oats? Think again.

What food/nutrition stories have you been reading this week?
