Coca-Cola is coming up with new products based on old recipes. Pepsi Throwback and some Coca-Colas bottled in Mexico are made with cane sugar instead of high fructose corn syrup. Some say they can taste the difference. And some of these soda drinkers even say that they have lost weight switching to the cane sugar formula. So why isn't soda made with cane sugar like it was a long time ago? U of U nutritionist, Wayne Askew gives a simple answer: "High fructose corn syrup is cheaper to use as a sweetener than sugar." Askew says corn syrup's reaction to the taste buds, rather than the calorie content, is why some people have found they lose weight.
