So, what is glucose~fructose syrup?

Glucose-fructose syrup is a sweetener made by converting cornstarch into a mixture of glucose and fructose. It is a highly versatile ingredient that is commonly used in the food industry to sweeten processed foods and beverages, including soft drinks, baked goods, and confectionery. Unlike regular sugar, glucose-fructose syrup has a higher sweetness level, making it a popular choice for manufacturers who want to reduce the amount of sugar in their products. It is also known as high-fructose corn syrup, which has been a topic of controversy due to its potential health risks when consumed in excessive amounts. However, when used in moderation, glucose-fructose syrup can be a safe and delicious addition to many foods and drinks.
