So, what is патока?

"Патока" is a sweet syrupy substance that is widely used as a food ingredient in Russia and other Eastern European countries. Made from corn or wheat starch, it is processed through hydrolysis to produce a thick, viscous liquid that is rich in glucose and fructose. Its sweet and caramel-like flavor makes it a popular sweetener for a variety of food products, including confectionery, baked goods, and dairy products. Additionally, it is often used as a binder and a humectant, helping to improve texture and extend the shelf life of food products. Due to its versatility and affordability, "патока" has become a staple ingredient in the food industry.
