What is High Fructose Corn Syrup?
High fructose corn syrup is a processed sweetener made from corn starch. The starch is made of sugars that is then broken down into a syrup made of glucose and fructose. The syrup is sticky, has a semi-thick viscosity and comes in a clear color, or dark brown, the darker version has a richer flavor. Corn syrup is used in food and drink production to add sweetness, volume and create softer textures.
