Poll question: If you put two different pancake syrups by one manufacturer on a plate and let them sit
Edited on Sat Nov-26-11 10:45 PM by DainBramaged
which one do you think is easier to remove in COLD water, tastes great, and even smells great, the syrup with or without the high fructose corn syrup? A hint, I tried this test, and there is a HUGE difference.........




Sorry, polls are turned off at Level 3.

1. So now we don't like corn syrup because it is sticky?
Who washes their plates in cold water?

37. There are lots of people here who "get it."
HFCS is not good for you...I don't care about the silly assed commercials. If you haven't figured out by now that much of the "information" you are getting from "main stream news" sources is inaccurate, and in cases of food choices, damn near dangerous, then you are not putting yourself into a good position to educate yourself.

As far as washing dishes in cold water...had to laugh. Our hot water heater went on the fritz yesterday...we don't have a dishwasher in our new place, and we had to do just that.

Making fun of the poster isn't going to help your dietary choices in any way...you would do well to read up on how food is produced in this country-

40. I suspect I have a better idea than most about how food is produced in this country..
what with managing 2 commercial kitchens responsible for around 600 meals per day. No, the poster apparently had ulterior humorous motives in the OP, per post #17, though nobody seems to know what they could be.

As for corn syrup, it is just among the latest bad food declarations. The real problem is with people eating too much shit food in general..soda with every meal, preprepared, salt infused entrees masquerading as food, fried everything, etc. Corn syrup isn't the problem, a quart of corn syrup per day is the problem...replace corn syrup with any other sweetener, continue eating the same shit, and whatever corn syrup is replaced with will be the new problem.

46. I just tire of silly assertions pointed to as evidence of something sinister..
what could the 'test' outlined in the OP actually prove? A lot of perfectly nutritional foods won't/will wash off a plate with cold water. I will eat a full lunch at a restaurant I manage today, I won't eat one drop of corn syrup, unless I decide to have a piece of homemade pecan pie for dessert...it's all about preparation, and cooking raw foods.

71. Nonsense
is it a good source of any needed element or compound? No. Poison? It must be the worlds most ineffective poison. There is one person in charge of what goes in my mouth. If that person decides to put a quart of it in my mouth each day, well, that person is an idiot. Enough already on the 'it's in EVERYTHING' nonsense, it's not in everything..it's in everything some people choose to eat..you know the ones, the ones who choose to drink a 2 liter of soda per day, the ones who eat poptarts for breakfast, McDonalds for lunch, HoHos for afternoon snack, a frozen pizza for dinner, and Doritos for the evening snack. Those people are also getting shit like red dye #40, msg, saturated fats, and a myriad of other nasty crap. For those of us who are generally healthy and choose to have an occasional soda, processed ice cream treat, or friggin' pancake, but usually eat food we prepare ourselves from raw ingredients and are a bit conscience of the canned/frozen products we choose to buy, there is no measurable risk of anything from hfcs. The sky is falling, and it's raining hfcs meme may result in awareness of what some people are eating, thus good, but merely cutting back on hfcs yet ignoring all the other manufactured fats, additives and preservatives in shit food, I'm not convinced cutting the hfcs would have a measurable effect in these people either. So many people want their cake and to eat it too..they want to eat every convenience food, and they want to bitch about the ingredients, well 'lazy' among other verbs comes to mind.

2. I tried the "No Corn Syrup" syrup last month - two thumbs up!
...or at least the kids gave it two thumbs up - I don't really like syrup much myself.

Anyway, about three weeks and it was time to get some more syrup, but the store didn't have it anymore. I read labels for awhile and there was nothing reasonably priced that wasn't loaded with corn syrup...except some small bottles of locally made maple syrup in natural berry flavors. Very good stuff, and I even like it myself.

22. That's what I keep meaning to try
Hubby got maple syrup but to me it's actually too sweet and not worth the price. I used to buy "pecan syrup" which was just flavored cane syrup, but I have not been able to find it for a while. So I'm thinking of heating some cane syrup with nut extract (I have some walnut) to see if it comes close to the pecan syrup I loved.

27. Almond extract might be worth a try as well
Simple syrup is one part sugar to part water, and winds up a bit runny for my tastes. 1 1/2 0r 2 parts sugar gives a thicker syrup.

64. Been making home made syrup for years, mix together
brown sugar, about 2/3s more water than sugar and maple flavoring and heat gently until sugar dissolves. Don't boil. Richer tasting.

15. I try not to eat imitation anything
I buy the real maple syrup and eat pancakes rarely as they are high in calories and sugar...usually add fresh blueberries since I do it so seldom.

My husband eats pancakes at least 3 times a week, he buys low cal imitation one...

23. The no high fructose corn syrup would be easier to clean with cold
water because pure maple syrup gets hard or does not run fast. It has nutrients for you and it much better for you. I watch the brands and they usually are having a sale on one of them. Now I get some at Costco that is pretty cheap. It's good to sweeten other things also.

61. If you mean about the snobbery, some regard those who don't agree to HCFS in their food, since it's
Linked to metabolic disorders from some sources, and 'natural' syrups are much more costly at the grocery stores, that may be it.

When you take into account the excessive amount of subsidies to corn producers; the invasive nature of GMO corn, the effect on the environment due to that; the amount of energy to create HCFS and transport it, when it really has no food value except a sort of general sweetness; it really isn't cheap.

It's an example of chasing profits and letting the market, coercion being applied to food processors and advertising to promote what is a food stuff. We have quite a debate of what is and is not healthy in the USA. The English language cannot keep up with the misinformation and outright lies that we've been told all our lives about what is being offered to exhausted consumers.

But for some, if it's good enough or rather cheap enough, for the already mentally and physically overwhelmed poorest to purchase, that means it's a symbol of equality. And to push people away from consuming the high profit margin stuff or insisting that on the idea that less processed, more expensive food stuffs are wiser in the long run is seen as snobbery.

For me, if any food needs all that stuff in it, whatever was alive and beneficial is long dead and gone and the stuff is toxic waste. Better taken care of by the EPA than my decrepit body.

Hope that helps. Sorry I'm always so long winded. I think it's why I'm on a lot of people's ignore lists. That, or I'm an opinionated ass, just everyone else.

A big :hi: to those in my ancestral homeland...

65. I have tried not to be a food snob like so many, but if I have a choice
I'll buy food WITHOUT HFCS, and MANY manufacturers have gotten the point (unlike some here) that maybe there is something to the issues it causes, or the potential.


I can't afford maple syrup, and when you're poor, you find comfort foods that are less damaging than others. I'll make pancakes or waffles instead of rice some nights because to me it's a treat.


Thanks fr your explanation, it was great.

18. There's no "real maple syrup only" checkbox (no, I'm not rich, I have a friend with land in Vermont)
If it's not high fructose corn syrup, and it certainly isn't maple syrup, then what IS it?

I figured since they extract maple syrup from maples and blueberry syrup from blueberries, that they extracted pancake syrup from old pancakes, maybe from IHOP's dumpster or something.

26. GD? Seems like this belongs in lounge For me its real Maple unless I'm at restaurant of some sort
Odd poll choices, I guess its some sort of joke. I will only use real maple syrup. never liked the fake stuff much but I will use it when I am out at a restaurant where they don't serve the real stuff such as Ihop or whatever. I am intrigued though by the no HFCS version of Log Cabin. I would like to try that just to see if it tastes better than the HFCS stuff.

I am very stingy with my real maple syrup. I tend to put very little on just because the damned stuff is so pricy.

44. Nope, I do not think there is. I imagine that most people aren't syrup aware enough to care
so Ihop just provides the cheapest possible syrup. I do enjoy their pancakes but the syrups are very lacking.

One way you can tell a cheap syrup is if it is stringy when it drips. Real maple syrup isn't stringy and doesn't have the same almost cheap consistency as the fake stuff.

This belongs in GD...albeit, I wish it had been worded slightly differently. We haven't touched HFCS in this house for years...and that means reading every damned label from cereals, bread, catsup and mustard. Read the labels, you would not believe what that shit is in.

42. actually, there's nothing "sick" about it
Different types of sugars are better for you, easier to digest, etc.

The problem is that industry has been on a campaign to make certain products seem "healthy" and "normal."

41. Both versions are maple-flavored sugar derivatives.
One is likely cane sugar and the other high fructose corn syrup (made from GMO corn to boot).

Stick with the real thing from Vermont, the kind from tree sap.

54. Two bottles of fake-ass sugar concentrate.
Neither is food.

73. Gaack!

I won't eat/drink pancake syrup. It might be my New England rearing, but anyone who isn't using straight maple syrup has no reason to eat pancakes!! (harumph, harumph!)




edited to add: Other members of my family do eat pancake syrup, because they eat pancakes almost every day. I might have pancakes once a month or so, so I splurge for the maple syrup--it will last for 6 months or more for me. :)
