  • Washington Post to air Super Bowl ad showcasing reporters' plight

Shortly after seeing the ad, Kevin Ross, first vice president of the National Corn Growers Association, posted on Twitter a video of him pouring out a can of beer, saying "Bud Light, you're not standing with corn farmers".

It's not the way you'd expect to start the week, but Bud Light, the patron saint of fraternities nationwide, finds itself embroiled in a freaky feud with the corn industry.

"This attack especially hits home at a time when farmers are hurting due to challenging economic conditions".

While that might not seem offensive to many consumers and viewers of last night's game between the New England Patriots and Los Angeles Rams, the folks who grow corn didn't like it one bit.

MillerCoors also countered that Miller Lite has fewer calories and carbs than Bud Lite. Added to the beer brewing process, corn syrup is eaten by yeast, turning the sugars into alcohol, according to Kaylyn Kirkpatrick, a brewing extension associate at Cornell University working in the department of food sciences. "Bud Light felt like a natural fit, and they jumped at the opportunity". "Things that make you go hmmmmm", he tweeted. "It's an adjunct and it all gets eaten by yeast which poops out ethanol and CO2", he tweeted.

Super Bowl commercials from Anheuser-Busch InBev SA's Bud Light may have just revived a national focus on corn syrup, an ingredient that has been blamed for its role in the national obesity epidemic.

While high fructose corn syrup has been vilified by some as a common contributor diabetes and obesity, the nation's farmers and agricultural industry began responding nearly immediately, upset at the implication that corn is a product to be completely avoided.
