Trend Projection of High Fructose Corn Sweetener Substitution for Sugar

Hoy Carman and Peter K. Thor

No 278275, 1979 Annual Meeting, July 29-August 1, Pullman, Washington from American Agricultural Economics Association (New Name 2008: Agricultural and Applied Economics Association)

Abstract: 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.
