In brief: Processed different

High fructose corn syrup is fructose, a 5-carbon sugar.
Cane sugar is a combination of fructose and sucrose (a 6-carbon sugar). Fructose metabolism requires the body to deplete atp, an energy molecule and produces lactic acid. Fructose has numerous problems associated with it including causing/worsening diabetes and increasing uric acid that can worsen gout.
