    What would be the impact on obesity in the United States of a change back to sucrose from HFCS? On the basis of the similarities between sucrose and HFCS noted above, it can be predicted with some certainty that there would be no change in caloric intake, no change in basic metabolism, and no change in rates of obesity. The substitution of sucrose for HFCS would be a nutritional wash. The one change consumers would notice is higher prices as sucrose is substituted for the less-expensive HFCS.
