High fructose corn syrup (EFCS) substitutes directly for sugar in many manufactured food products. Its continued rapid substitution for sugar has economic implications to sweetener industry participants and others. A nonlinear trend projection indicates that per capita and total U.S. sugar consumption will likely decrease during the next decade as PFCS consumption increases.
