Yes, I noticed HFCS in the ingredients went I went to replace my current supply. I immediately emailed Kraft. I won't buy it. I am very disappointed.


This is good to let them know that you disapprove of their ingredient switch. I hate the undercover whisper way of doing this. If you aren't "proud" of using high-fructose corn syrup, don't put it back in your salad dressing.

I am very upset that after buying Miracle Whip original. It contained High Fructose corn syrup is back in it. I would like to get my mony back. Also why are we using a product that is not good nor natural for our body. Shame on Kraft foods for misleading the public. American Food companies are doing an ugly thing to our food chain.


The message I received is below. When they went to sugar they changed the label. Switching back without a notice really has me aggravated.

Hi Steven,

Thank you for visiting http://www.kraftfoods.com/.

Our consumers' safety and health are our number one priority, and we would not allow ingredients into our products that we believe would not be safe for consumption.

Experts agree that there are no nutritional differences among regular sugar and high fructose corn syrup, and the body uses all types of sugar in the same way.

We use high fructose corn syrup because of its stability, consistency and functionality, as well as its cost.

Kraft offers consumers a wide range of products to suit consumers' needs -- some contain sugar, others high fructose corn syrup or non-nutritive sweeteners, such as Aspartame - and these are clearly listed on the product's list of ingredients for consumers' convenience.

If you would like to read more about HFCS, please visit the International Food Information Council's website: www.ific.org

If you haven't done so already, please add our site to your favorites and visit us again soon!

Thank you so much for getting word from Kraft. Too bad Kim didn't mention that the company made a big deal in switching to sugar. No pomp and circumstance to switch back, as if they were ashamed. The "no nutritional differences" point is a meaningless statement. Nutrition never was the issue. Wow!


I read alot about the Miracle Whip changing to High Fructose corn sweetener.. I bought SPIN BLEND (no HFCS) and did a blind taste test with my family and friends. Everyone chose the SPIN BLEND. Really tastes better and much creamier..


Rie, there are a lot of good choices that don't have high-fructose corn syrup. Or you can make your own.

There is no difference between sucrose and HFCS. Both, to borrow Lustig's opinion are "poisons."
Both are metabolized in the liver using the same pathways as alcohol and 30% of the calories go directly to fat.


Even if both are "poisons," which is debatable, there is a significant difference between sucrose and HFCS. We weren't running these levels of Type 2 diabetes when sugar was the primary sweetener.

My typical breakfast

    There is no right way to finding the balance of food, just your way. My typical breakfast is whole wheat spaghetti with homemade sauce, sautéed mushrooms, and a naturally low-fat Italian cheese sprinkled on top. Works for me.
