So, what is majssirup?

Majssirup, also known as corn syrup, is a sweetener commonly used in food production. It is made by extracting starch from corn kernels and then treating the starch with enzymes to break it down into glucose molecules. The resulting syrup is thick, viscous, and has a mild, sweet flavor. Majssirup is often used in baked goods, candies, and other sweets because it helps prevent crystallization and improves texture. It is also used in some savory dishes, such as glazes and marinades. While widely available, there are concerns about its high fructose content and potential adverse health effects.
