Topic, "High Fructose Corn Syrup, Controversies and Common Sense"

At 7PM on Wednesday 2 December, at Taste, in College Park, we'll have a fascinating discussion for you.

High Fructose Corn Syrup is often mischaracterized and misunderstood. This sweetener, which was introduced into the food supply in the United States and some other countries in the late 1960s and 1970s, existed in relative obscurity for many years. The presentation will explore the metabolic and nutritional effects of High Fructose Corn Syrup with a particular emphasis on its relationship to sucrose, which is the substance that it was designed to replace.

Orlando, United States

Taste is near the corner of Princeton Street (really Smith Street after the fork) and Edgewater Drive, so about 2 minutes from I-4 to parking. One can park on the street or in the parking lot behind Taste.

From I-4, drive a few blocks to Edgewater Drive. At the intersection, you should see a orange building ahead of you, labeled "Taste". Park on the street or behind Taste.
