Agua frescas really are the best solution. I also like iced tea...natural...properly made hot tea poured over ice cubes. The best iced tea I've had at a restaurant is served at Panino's...big glass with one envelope of Splenda and a slice of lime.

I make Jamaica with a hand full of blossoms, 1/2 cinnamon stick and a sliced sweet orange in about 2 quarts of water . Cover and cook the whole mess for about 10 minutes. Strain and chill. Dilute as needed. For me this is sweet enough. Add a little miel de avave to sweeten if needed.

BTW the label on a can of Pepsi at OXXO had jarabe de maiz de alta fructosa (high fructose corn syrup) listed as an ingredient.

I just did a google search which revealed that Pepsi uses High Fructose Corn Syrup; the amount in a 12 oz. can equivalent to 41 grams of sugar or 3 tablespoons. Yikes!!

This reminds me of what happened when we first moved here. A couple came to visit and the next morning at breakfast they had coffee and the women asked for sugar and we just didn’t have any, Nada. Now we keep it on hand.

I have sugar but it's OLD...is in a well sealed container though.
I'm still using a small container of salt that I bought five years ago.
These are two things that we try and steer clear of.

Thanks all for the agua fresca ideas. That Jamaica with orange and cinnamon sounds really good.

What is a real downer these days is the habit in Mexico of stating azucares without being specific. I mean I really want to know which sugar, or sweetener is being used. I suppose one could call the manufacturer but you may not get an appropriate answer. Well........we use whatever sweetener is available at the time.

Pepsi at least tells you that theirs contain HFCS. But I am pretty sure Coca Cola is doing the same in their line of soft drinks. The law says that azucares can be either monosacaridos or disacaridos. Fructose is a monosaccharide.

If you check the label on many sweetened products here you'll find azucares and my money says that means HFCS as an ingredient.

Mexican Coca Cola has quite a cult following in the US (from WIKI):
"Mexican Coke (aka "Coca Cola de Mexico", "Coke de Mexico", or, informally, "MexiCoke") is Coca-Cola that is made and bottled in Mexico[1] in a thick glass bottle.[2] Although intended for consumption in Mexico, Mexican Coke has become very popular in the United States because of a flavor that Mexican Coke fans call "a lot more natural tasting".[1] This "more natural" taste can be partially attributed to the use of refined cane sugar in Mexican Coke, as opposed to the high-fructose corn syrup[2] found in nearly all soft drinks bottled in the United States because of a state subsidy for corn farmers.[3]"

A 24 pack of 12oz bottles runs $43.99 on Amazon:

Costco sells the same for $20.21:

Yep, I agree 100% on that one. Truth in labeling is not a popular concept with the marketing people. I might add that up until Christmas I was using pineapple juice, which to the best of my knowledge was sweetened with actual sugar. Then.........I start looking at the labels and get this azucares business. Now, I'm really not confident about any sweetened food or drinks, unless I'm the one doing the sweetening with my very own mascabado sugar. Hence, will be starting to make my own aguas frescas asap. Plus, if you really look at labels and they use a different name for an additive, MSG being one of the most common, you're lost in a forest of gobbledegook. Here's a list of products which either do contain MSG, sneakily shuffled in under an alias, or possibly contain MSG. Brace yourselves people.

I think I better stop eating anything at all, unless it's in its natural form...and we know that even that might be questionable.

Sadly yes, it's getting rough out there in foodlandia. On the other hand, how much time do we really have left....?

Given all of these food factors that we are supposed to worry about, I really have to wonder just how we all managed to live as long as we have?

I think it's only in the last twenty or thirty years that it's been a problem. Too busy lives and buying the ready made lasagna (for example) because it just takes to long to prepare the real thing. We were already adults.
I worry about the effects on the grandkids who have been eating this stuff since day 1...what are their long term health worries. Frankenfood indeed.

I like the course Mexican sugar we buy at the corner market much more than the refined "C&H"sugar I was used to.We don't use much but we like the taste better.

We just finished our comida of fresh grilled robalo and the beverage was an agua fresca de piña completely unsweetened. They are harvesting pineapple on the Jalisco coast near Tomatlàn that are incredibly sweet and they make a wonderful agua fresca sin azùcar. Just water and crushed pineapple.

There wasn't one processed food product in the whole meal, everything was made from fresh ingredients. That is where IMO eating here in Mexico far excels the typical diet NOB.

I've changed to Stevia too. So far I haven't heard of any problems with it.

After reading E-Raq's list of deceptive names for stuff we don't want.....I'm appalled.
Meanwhile, I'll let Angelica's make my "home made" lasagna. Had some a few days ago and it was "heavenly". Bet she doesn't put any junk stuff in it, either.

A comment on the frozen foods we see in the freezer case: Some photographer takes a picture of food that never was, but looks delicious. It has almost nothing to do with the contents of the package.......but looks so tempting. Bummer.
There oughta be a law.

Oohhh!
Gringal, they do it on menus too. Pisses us off no end too when the item in the picture bears only a passing resemblance to what is on your plate.
When confronted with a menu replete with pictures, we have taken to asking the waitperson if THIS is what we will be getting ... or not? Lizzy
