Come back to us, sugar! Some food makers dumping corn syrup


After years of debate about the role of high-fructose corn syrup in the obesity epidemic, many food manufacturers are going back to using sugar to sweeten products.

Con Agra, Pepsi and Kraft Foods are among those switching to sugar for some products.
