Corn Syrup vs High -Fructose Corn Syrup
Corn syrup is a sweetener used primarily in baking and is mostly made up of glucose which can be found in the baking aisle at your local grocery store. When some of the glucose in corn syrup is converted to fructose, it becomes high-fructose corn syrup. Chemically high-fructose corn syrup is closer to sucrose (table sugar) but is cheaper, and offers a sweeter taste- because of this combination fructose has become irresistible to manufactures of processed foods and sodas.
