Pepsi has come out with versions of Mountain Dew and Pepsi based on sucorse rather than high fructose corn syrup.  There seem to be vehement arguments from some that there is no nutritional difference between the two, and from others that HRCS much worse for you.  I would like to know what the nutritional differences are between sucrose, HFCS, and other sweetners.
