High Fructose Corn Syrup?

I've seen a couple of these commercials advertising that high fructose corn syrup is ok for you as long as you have it in moderation. Definitely an industry campaign to counter the constant borage of negative press around the ingredient.

Tonight on the Biggest Loser, trainer Bob began one of the many product placement messages that are mingled in the show. His opening line, "Avoid foods with high fructose corn syrup." Nathan and I couldn't help but laugh at the mixed messages we heard in a single 1 hour period. Perhaps running these ads during The Biggest Loser hour was not the best marketing choice. Personally, I'm going with trainer Bob on this one.
