So, what is corns syrup?

Corn syrup is a versatile sweetener made from corn starch. It's a popular ingredient in many foods and beverages due to its high fructose content and ability to prevent crystallization. The syrup's light color and mild flavor make it ideal for sweetening everything from baked goods to soda pop. Additionally, its viscosity provides a useful binding agent in recipes for granola bars, caramel sauces, and marinades. While it has a bad reputation for its high glycemic index, it's a crucial ingredient in many culinary applications and offers a unique sweetness that can't be replicated with other sweeteners.
