So, what is fructose-sirup?

Fructose syrup is a sweetener made from cornstarch that is widely used as a substitute for sugar in many foods and beverages. This syrup is made by converting cornstarch into glucose and then further processing it into fructose. Fructose syrup is often used in the production of soft drinks, fruit-flavored beverages, and processed foods such as candy and baked goods. It has a sweeter taste than regular sugar and is also known for its ability to retain moisture, which makes it an excellent ingredient for enhancing the texture and flavor of many products. Despite its popularity, fructose syrup has been a controversial topic in the food industry due to its potential negative health effects.
