So, what is glucose-fruktose-sirup?

Glucose-fructose syrup, also known as high fructose corn syrup, is a sweetener derived from corn starch. It is commonly used as a substitute for sugar in processed foods due to its high fructose content, which provides a sweeter taste with less volume. The syrup is made by breaking down corn starch into glucose, then converting some of that glucose into fructose. The resulting syrup has a thick, viscous consistency and a sweet, caramel-like flavor. Despite its widespread use, some studies have linked high consumption of glucose-fructose syrup to health issues such as obesity, type 2 diabetes, and heart disease.
