America’s sweet tooth not as sweet as a decade earlier

America’s sweet tooth not as sweet as a decade earlier
In 2013, 128.4 pounds per person of caloric sweeteners were available for consumption by U.S. consumers, down from a high of 151.5 pounds in 1999. Availability of total corn sweeteners (high-fructose corn syrup (HFCS), glucose syrup, and dextrose) has fallen from 83.6 pounds per person in 1999 to 58.6 pounds in 2013, partly reflecting rising sales of zero-calorie drinks at the expense of HFCS-sweetened soft drinks.
