What products are in this unfortunate category? Here are some examples:
- Graham Crackers
- Vanilla Wafers
- Cool Whip/Whipped topping
- Bread Crumbs
- English Muffins
If you want HFCS-Free Graham Crackers, Whole Foods is your best bet. In my view the best HFCS-free Vanilla Wafers are at Trader Joes. For Cool Whip/Whipped Topping (note, Redi-whip and canned varieties are often HFCS free but some recipes call for Cool Whip-like stuff) there's a decent tasting organic version at Giant. Bread Crumbs? Well, the best i found was at Trader Joes. English Muffins: there is a wide range that is HFCS-free but please note that most restaurants use English Muffins with HFCS. So, if you avoid HFCS: NO Eggs Benedict for you! Of course, the same goes for the ketchup, prepared salad dressings, syrups, sauces, and condiments served at most restaurants (unless they make their own.)
I am sure I left some products off this list. Please feel free to post a comment if there are some things that you have trouble finding in a HFCS-free variety.
