My best guess on the 2nd most consumed processed food in America would be corn.

You can't drink a regular soft drink without consuming corn. Corn syrup is the most popular sweetener today. Corn starch and modified food starch are ingredients in many processed foods.

Commercial baked goods? First ingredient is 1) Refined wheat flour, followed by 2) High fructose corn syrup.

It could be a low fat, low cholesterol food with those first two ingredients listed. Guess what happens when we eat that stuff? America gets fatter. And we did.

What happens to lipid profiles when we eliminate the above junk foods? ...They improve.
