number of U.S. products containing HFCS

I'm trying to find the number of food products that are sold in the U.S. that contain high fructose corn syrup. I've done some preliminary searches and have found some lists, but I've come up dry when trying to find actual numbers. I'd like a reliable source that I can cite, but I'll take almost anything at this point. I am at a university and have access to a large number of subscription database resources, so I'll keep looking. But I thought metafilter might be able to help out here.

Glycemic index ipad app?

I've looked on the iTunes store for a glycemic index iPad app and the five or six I looked through all got horrible reviews. Do you use a GI app, and if so, which do you like? Both paid and free are fine. I'd also be open to other food tracking apps if they are really great. It should be compatible with a low carb / paleo type diet. Thanks.

Is enteric-coated fish oil better utilized by the body?

Aside from preventing fishy burps, is there any significant nutritional advantage to taking enteric-coated fish oil supplements over their non-enteric coated counterpart? I’ve seen ads claim that the enteric coating helps to preserve the fish oil from stomach acid and bile until it reaches the small intestine - is there any scientific basis to this? Generally speaking, will the body utilize one better than the other?
