So, what is an corn syrup?

Corn syrup is a common sweetener and thickening agent made from corn starch. It is a syrupy, clear liquid with a sweet taste and a high glucose content. Corn syrup is often used in a wide variety of food products, including baked goods, candies, soft drinks, and processed foods. Unlike table sugar, corn syrup does not crystallize when exposed to air, which makes it an ideal ingredient for creating smooth and consistent textures. Although corn syrup has been criticized for its high sugar content and possible health risks, it remains a popular ingredient in many foods and recipes.
