What’s organic corn syrup?
Organic corn syrup is a natural sweetener made from organic cornstarch. It is a thick, clear, and colorless liquid that has a mild sweetness and a neutral flavor. It is used as a sweetener, thickener, and moisture-retaining agent in various food products, such as baked goods, candies, jams, jellies, sauces, and beverages.
Organic corn syrup is produced by hydrolyzing organic cornstarch with water and enzymes to break down the starch molecules into glucose molecules. The degree of hydrolysis determines the sweetness and thickness of the syrup. The higher the dextrose equivalent (DE) of the syrup, the more sugar and less water it contains.
Organic corn syrup can be further processed by converting some of the glucose molecules into fructose molecules using enzymes. This results in a sweeter and thinner syrup called high-fructose corn syrup (HFCS).
