Corn Sugar is a Disguise of an Old Ingredient.

The high fructose corn syrup industry has petitioned for a name change. Lipstick on a pig. It hasn't passed yet but it seems that it may. They claim it's to alleviate confusion, but really it's because HFCS has gotten so much bad press, with good reason. It causes non-alcoholic fatty liver disease. It may have mercury in it. It's generally bad bad BAD for you, empty calories, even cheaper for the manufacturer than real cane sugar. So watch for "corn sugar".
