Is high fructose corn syrup (HFCS) more likely than other sugars to cause weight gain? No, says a panel of experts who reviewed all of the evidence around obesity and the increased use of HFCS. All added sugars, not just HFCS, are contributing to our obesity problem; it’s a matter of overconsumption. Americans simply consume too many foods like soda, energy drinks, sports drinks, desserts and sugar-sweetened drinks, which make up about 60 percent of our added sugar intake.
