• A New York Times blog attempts to debunk food myths related to sugar, which is increasingly being viewed as a health food, compared with such high-fructose sweeteners as corn syrup. Six experts and researchers evaluate the white stuff’s new-found popularity. [New York Times]

• The Toronto Wine and Cheese Show wasn’t true to its name this year, argues one food blogger. It took place in the suburbs, served too little food, and favoured mass-produced imposters over genuine Canadian cheese. [BlogTO]

• Despite PR initiatives and a new business strategy, the future of Maple Leaf Foods remains grim. One study shows that nearly 50 per cent of Canadian consumers haven’t eaten Maple Leaf meat since last summer’s listeriosis scare. [Canada.com]

• The benefits of an occasional glass of red wine may apply to only half of us. A British study has found that drinking even low or moderate amounts of alcohol increases a woman’s risk of cancer. [Turnto10]

The Globe and Mail discovers that Canadians’ enthusiasm toward organic food isn’t subsiding due to the recession; people are simply finding a way to factor it into reduced budgets. [Globe and Mail]
