As I posted on TLT’s Facebook page last night, New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg is making big headlines this morning with a proposed city ban on most sugary beverages sold in containers larger than 16 ounces. The move would affect restaurants, ball parks, movie theaters, street vendors and other establishments regulated by the city’s health department.
Details here. For my take, stay tuned.
In related news, FDA has rejected a request by the Corn Refiners Association to rename high fructose corn syrup the more innocuous-sounding “corn sugar.” More on that development from Marion Nestle at Food Politics.
