Bud Light’s Super Bowl ad angers the corn industry

The idea, as you might guess, is that beer brewed with corn syrup is worse than beer that's brewed without it. One showed a medieval caravan schlepping a huge barrel of corn syrup to castles owned by Miller and Coors.

Corn growers are literally pouring Bud Light down the drain after a Super Bowl ad aired touting the brew's lack of high fructose corn syrup, which rival Miller Lite and Coors Light use in their formulas. "Corn is a homegrown renewable crop that feeds and fuels my family and yours", he added, before demanding Anheuser-Busch, "Please leave us out of the beer wars". They made a decision to call up Bud Light and its agency Wieden+Kennedy New York.

As chance would have it, that's what happened.

Was Sunday night's Game of Thrones Super Bowl ad a stealthy spoiler for the way the whole series will end?

Sanderson said the corn grown on his family's farm mostly goes to feeding chickens at other farms in the area, but he said the farming community is like a family.

Consumption of high fructose corn syrup in the U.S. began falling at the turn of the century when it was linked to soaring rates of obesity. Details of those are presumably still to come, as is the final season of one of the most talked-about TV franchises of all time. The statement says it's up to consumers "to decide what beer is right for them".

A better question to ask: Does anyone who drinks light beer care whether it's made with corn syrup or not?

"Bud Light uses rice to aid fermentation". He also noted that Anheuser-Busch uses high fructose corn syrup in some of its beverages, which is true - a look through the company's hard soda and iced tea beverage products finds that high fructose corn syrup is used as ingredient. If you eat a teaspoon of rice syrup or corn syrup your body will process them the same way.

Kirkpatrick concurs. Corn syrup in beer "should not be a health concern", she says. "Wind power's record-setting 2018 proves you really can have it all", Tom Kiernan, CEO of American Wind Energy Association, said in the release.
