After drinking Mott’s and Ocean Spray 100%-advertised “pure” fruit juices, my reactions were swift and severe. Both companies confirmed that these “pure” fruit juices contained corn-derived ascorbic acid. Who would have thought that corn is in fruit juice?

“Most corn-derived products, like cornstarch and high-fructose corn syrup, do not contain corn protein. If you have a corn allergy, you do not need to avoid these products.”
