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

I just came across your blog, and guess what... there is no more HFCS in Kraft Catalina Dressing! My wife and I bought some today and were surprised to see it didn't contain once ounce of HFCS. Enough people must have complained that they decided to get rid of it. Next time I'm at the store I will need to examine the other Kraft dressings.
