What is high fructose corn syrup made of?



  1. 0 Votes

    High fructose corn syrup is a sugar replacement, made out of corn, which can be made cheaper than cane sugar.  Enzymatic processing is undergone with corn syrups to achieve a desired, uniform sweetness.  There are health concerns attached to the intake of high fructose corn syrup, because of the extensive processing involved.  Also, even in some products where cane sugar is used, HFCS is used to “stretch” the sweetness, since it is so inexpensive.
