So, what is jarabe de maiz alta fructosa?

Jarabe de maíz alta fructosa (JMAF) is a commonly used sweetener made from corn starch. It is similar in composition to table sugar, but has a higher fructose content. JMAF is frequently used in processed foods and beverages as a cost-effective alternative to sugar. It is also used as a thickener and flavor enhancer in certain recipes. Some studies have linked excessive consumption of JMAF to various health issues, including obesity and type 2 diabetes. However, its use in food production continues to be prevalent due to its affordability and versatility.
