They've renamed High Fructose Corn Syrup

If they dilute it 10% they can call it fructose:
According to the Corn Refiners Association (CRA), there’s been a sneaky name change. The term ‘fructose’ is now being used to denote a product that was previously known as HFCS-90, meaning it is 90 percent pure fructose. Compare this to what is termed ‘regular’ HFCS, which contains either 42 or 55 percent fructose, and you will know why General Mills is so eager to keep you in the dark.
Amazing. The more crap they put in our food, the less I want to buy. I bet I'm not alone in this reaction and you'd think corporations would notice.
