High Fructose Corn Syrup is high in fructose.

Fact

In spite of the name, HFCS is not all that high in fructose. HFCS-55 contains 55% fructose, whereas HFCS-42 contains 42% fructose. Regular table sugar contains 50% fructose, so in fact, much of the HFCS used in baking and other dry goods is actually lower in fructose than sugar would be.
