BACKGROUND Consumption of high-fructose corn syrup, as well as cane sugar, has been implicated in the rise of the obesity and diabetes epidemics. To date, however, no reliable biomarker for the consumption of these sweeteners is available. OBJECTIVE The objective of the study was to determine the natural abundance stable-carbon-isotope signature of commonly consumed foods of plant origin. DESIGN Samples from approximately 100 plant-derived food products purchased from local grocery stores… CONTINUE READING
