So, what is sirop de mais?

Sirop de maïs, also known as corn syrup, is a sweetener commonly used in cooking and baking. It is made from corn starch, which is broken down into glucose molecules through a process called hydrolysis. The resulting syrup is thick and sticky, with a subtle sweetness and mild flavor. Corn syrup is a versatile ingredient that can be used in a variety of recipes, including candy, cakes, and frostings. It is often used in place of sugar to improve texture, add moisture, and prevent crystallization. Corn syrup is a popular alternative to other sweeteners because it is relatively inexpensive and has a longer shelf life.
