    Where can I buy HFCS in East Tennessee? If I can't find that then where is the best price on sugar and where can it be bought in bulk?
    Thanks,
    Tommy

    how much of a road trip is Brushy Mtn. for you?
    they have a big tank and will sell small amounts
    I'm not quite ready for a tractor trailer load [img]smile.gif[/img] (that's how the big boy's buy it)
    I have thought about buying a 55 gallon drum, there's a place near here where you can apparently buy it

    Tommy.... if there are any sugar processors
    in your area..... Call them and ask who does
    the railcar hauling..... And do they contract
    out the railcar cleaning. If they do then call
    that company and ask what they do with the
    residual sugar (there is a load of it).

    I got my last 2000# tote bag for 14 cents a
    pound and it actually weighed in at 2300#'s.
    They guesstimate on the low side rather than
    weigh it.

    The upside of dry for me is the ability to
    store it and mix it as needed. And of course
    it is way cheaper than HFCS!!

    Also the rumor mill is saying that HFCS will
    skyrocket next year due to ethanol production.

    you can get it in 5 gallon pails from Betterbee
    for $21. for 60 lbs
    or $130 for a 600 lbs drum

    keep it warm or it will crystalize.

    I would think that the price would drop from the ethanol production, they'll be processing more corn and the HFC is a by product (I think). They are also finding out that the fuel mileage w/ethanol is less than w/gas by about 3mpg, so it will cost more in 2 ways- the cost of ethanol fuel and more frequent fill-ups.
    Check with CARGIL They have a plant some where in Tenn. Around Memphis I think.

    The sugar in processing corn into ethanol
    is converted to alcohol. Ethanol production
    is making the supply side for HFCS tighter.

    E-85 gets about 25% less fuel mileage than
    regular gasoline. So the price has to be
    significantly less.

    -So the price has to be
    significantly less.- In our way of thinking any way, remember unleaded and leaded-regular?? You paid more for un-leaded even though they left out a step in processing. and you had to pay more. Ethanol will ( I'll bet you) be the same high price at the pump poor proformence.
