Corn sugar smackdown (update)

Several of Our Daily Green's loyal readers have helped me promote my smackdown with the modified food product formerly known as High Fructose Corn Syrup. I've waited patiently again for nearly 3 weeks for a response. I did receive an automated reply from the Corn Refiners Association.

A PETITION TO STOP HFCS from being labeled CORN SUGAR

They don't have time to answer your question because they are too busy retelling the same song and dance and referencing the same skewed studies they paid for in all the blogs where people dare say they don't eat corn sugar. Apparently we are not allowed to make choices for ourselves, let alone talk about them, if the CRA doesn't agree. I have e-mailed and written a letter requesting similar but I have had no response yet.

We do the best we can with responding to the inquiries that come through various mediums. To respond to your question, our member companies sell corn syrup in bulk quantities (railcar or truck). Distributors of these ingredients in smaller quantities can be found at the websites listed below, but they have no affiliation with CRA.

Well gosh, thanks for the useless information and avoiding my specific request, CRA. If I ever need to buy a 5 gallon bucket of HFCS for bee keeping, I may be in luck. But the rest of the sources only sell to registered commerical businesses.
