Super Bowl 2019: America's Corn Farmers Respond to Bud Light's Commercial

"But we don't brew Bud Light with corn syrup", the bearded king says confusedly. Like beer? Then we have the commercial for you.

Similarly, Matthew Boucher, an IL corn farmer who has appeared previously on FOX Business tweeted, "For the record: The fact that Bud Light isn't made with corn isn't an issue". "Our office is right down the road!"

@BudLightAmerica's corn farmers are disappointed in you. "Thanks @MillerLightand @CoorsLite for supporting our industry". In case you missed it, the commercial is below.

Bud Light is touting that it doesn't use corn syrup, but that doesn't make it nutritionally much different from its competitors.

Corn-based sweeteners, especially high-fructose corn syrup, have been vilified in recent years as possible contributors to the obesity and diabetes epidemics.

Dr. Mike Roussell, who writes a nutritional blog, says HFCS is made up of approximately 45 percent glucose and 55 percent fructose. We use corn syrup.

Kevin Ross, a sixth-generation family farmer from Minden, Iowa posted a video of himself on twitter pouring cans of Bud Light into his sink shortly after the ad aired.

But the ad, which some may have thought was one of the most interesting parts of an incredibly low-scoring Super Bowl game, didn't just uncap a new fight with other brewers.

"Corn and rice, most of those are 100-percent fermentable so those are not going to be in your finished product, usually", agreed Desiree Chubb, 3 Daughters' director of quality assurance.

"You know how MSM journalists could avoid having to spend millions on a #superbowl commercial to gain some undeserved credibility?"

MillerCoors chief communications officer Pat Marino pointed out Bud Light's rice use in a tweet defending his company.
