So, what is sirope de maiz?

Sirope de maiz, or corn syrup, is a sweetener commonly used in the food industry. It is made from cornstarch and contains a high level of glucose, giving it a thicker consistency than traditional table sugar. The syrup is often used in baked goods, candy, and beverages as it helps prevent crystallization and improves the texture and flavor of the final product. Sirope de maiz is also a popular alternative to honey or maple syrup due to its lower cost and neutral flavor profile. However, it has been subject to controversy due to its high fructose content and potential health risks when consumed in large quantities.
