The Skinny: Jarabe de Maiz de Alta Fructosa, aka JMAF (High Fructose Corn Syrup) is finding its way into lots of food products around Buenos Aires. The verdict is still out on whether this stuff is more or less harmful than regular sugar, but why eat it if you have a choice? Read your food labels (even on ‘healthy’ bread) and watch for JMAF. Also, cheap honey will say right on the front: Miel y JMAF…no thanks–I’ll stick to the more expensive stuff…the kind that’s made by bees!
