Corn glucose refers to a type of glucose syrup that is obtained by the process of corn starch hydrolysis. It comprises concentrated amounts of calories with little nutritional value, which makes it an ideal substitute for table sugar. Also known as glucose syrup, it is also utilized as a humectant and thickening agent in the food and beverages industry. It is known to enhance the overall flavor of the food it is used in, while extending its shelf life at the same time. Apart from this, it can be employed to impart color, add volume, and soften the texture of the food preparation. It is also used to prevent the crystallization of sugar and improve the appearance of the food items. As a result, it is increasingly used for the preparation of cookies, cakes, cereals, pastry, biscuits, ketchup, chips, jams, candies, sorbets, ice creams, vitamin tonics and dairy desserts.
