Dyergram Quick-Hits

The sweetener industry enters the new year surrounded by uncertainty under which it has to confront a number of issues. Adverse nutritional charges aimed at sugar in the media and on the internet seem to be unending. This has led some food manufacturers to reformulate their products by searching for substitutes for sugar. A number of communities have imposed taxes on sugary drinks. The beet sugar industry is confronted with mounting concern over GMO products. The future of NAFTA is in doubt. If it is terminated, HFCS exports to Mexico will be uncertain as will sugar imports from Mexico. And to top it all, the farm bill is up for reconsideration. All the charges that sugar contributes to obesity and other medical problems could intensify opposition to the sugar provisions in the bill. Efforts will, no doubt, be made to reform or eliminate the sugar program.
