How much corn is in a can of Coke?
1.5 ears? 5.1 ears? (2 ears sounds better to me – hardy har har)
Maybe a 12oz can has ~12 teaspoons of HFCS-55, so 2oz? How much actual corn is needed to make an oz of HFCS-55?
This question is driven by the recent viewing of the movie The Future of Food (2004), specifically thinking about genetically modified corn and the lack of proper labeling in America (possibly my can of Coke?) I’m highly skeptical, but in all fairness this is what Coke-Cola had to say on the GM sub-topic.
So – an ear of corn has about 800 kernels, but how many of those are used to make a can of Coke?
