Q: What is the difference between regular corn syrup and high-fructose corn syrup? A: Both types of corn syrup start the same way: Cornstarch is treated with an acid or an enzyme, turning it into glucose syrup. To make regular corn syrup - the kind found in supermarkets and used by home bakers for candies and frostings - manufacturers clarify and reduce glucose syrup until it's the right consistency. High-fructose corn syrup is also made from corn-derived glucose syrup, but it requires additional chemical reactions that convert some of the glucose into fructose, creating a sweetener that contains both.

Hi, we're Archer Daniels Midland. We don't smell. And we make as little noise as possible. So said company representatives during a Planning Commission meeting in Falls Wednesday. ADM, the first would-be tenant for a proposed industrial park between Route 1 and Old Lincoln Highway, gave commission members a presentation of its corn storage facilities, assuring township officials and about 30 residents that it would not be a detriment to the neighborhood. "This is a first-class cleanly operation that will have no negative impact on the community," said Tom Hecker, an attorney for ADM. Commission members are awaiting a decision from supervisors on Conrail's proposal to develop the 81-acre rail yard that ADM wants to move into.

All that tastes sweet isn't sugar - or at least that is what a federal judge told attorneys for Coca-Cola Co. here last week. The judge's comments were in reference to a sour, five-year court battle between 60 Cola-Cola bottlers nationwide and their parent group, the giant Cola-Cola Co., which is incorporated here. In a class-action suit filed in 1981, the bottlers alleged that they were being supplied with a mixture, called HFCS-55, containing corn syrup - and not sugar, as agreed to in a 1921 consent decree.

THERE'S a large number of Americans (white racist tea partyers included) who, because of their blatant dislike for people of color - and thus our president - will allow the Republican Party (the modern-day KKK) to force them to lose their homes, jobs, pensions, families and even their lives to further a hateful and greedy agenda. And this party shows its disdain for these same people, the white poor, by treating them exactly the same way they treat the minorities. They appear confident that the white poor will be blinded by their anti-poor and anti-minority lies and misinformation.

This is your brain on sugar - for real. Scientists have used imaging tests to show for the first time that fructose, a sugar that saturates the American diet, can trigger brain changes that may lead to overeating. After one drinks a fructose beverage, the brain doesn't register the feeling of being full as it does when simple glucose is consumed, researchers found. It's a small study and does not prove that fructose or its relative, high-fructose corn syrup, can cause obesity, but experts say it adds evidence they may play a role.

Planning Commission officials will not recommend a storage operation that Archer Daniels Midland had proposed building in the township. In a unanimous vote last night, the seven-member board said the proposed ADM facility did not meet zoning requirements. Board members also criticized Conrail for its proposals involving the ADM site. ADM, which manufactures corn syrup and other corn byproducts, wants to be the first tenant in Conrail's 81-acre industrial park between Route 1 and Old Lincoln Highway.
