Had some Trader Joe's 100% Grapefruit Juice. Delicious. Absolutely No High Fructose Corn Syrup. Just 100% Grapefruit Juice. 100% flavor. yum

This one looks good so far. It contains 100% Juice and NO HIGH FRUCTOSE CORN SYRUP

Ingredients (per label): Apple Juice, Grape Juice, Kiwi Juice and Strawberry Juice (water, juice concentrates), natural flavors, ascorbic acid(vitamin c), citric acid)

I must say I always wonder what exactly is "natural flavors" And I always laugh that for Kiwi Strawberry Juice the first juices listed are apple and grape

HFCS - Kraft's Catalina Dressing

I am hoping to set an example for my family and speak out more. Ask questions that need to be asked. Will it make a difference? I truly don't know but for me it is better than just complaining.

Today when I was about to eat my salad I pulled out the Kraft Catalina Dressing to add to it. Before I did I decided to look and see what it had in it. I was surprised to see that the first ingredient listed was HIGH FRUCTOSE CORN SYRUP - the first ingredient! It was followed by Tomato Puree, Soybean Oil, Vinegar, Salt, Water and some other stuff. By why did HFCS have to be the #1 ingredient. I decided to choose a different dressing.

I think maneuvered through the website and finally sent in this note:

I recently bought Kraft Catalina Dressing and was dismayed to find that HIGH FRUCTOSE CORN SYRUP was listed as the number 1 ingredient. What steps are you taking to address serious issues concerning this ingredient. Until you start looking at health risks over profit I will no longer purchase this product

It is not my best letter but I'm at least I did something
