High Fructose Corn Syrup Conversion
GO “CLEAN LABEL” WITH SUGARIGHT:
REPLACING HFCS WITH LIQUID SUGAR
With many consumers concerned about the correlation between the consumption of HFCS and health issues, many food companies are replacing HFCS with sucrose (cane or beet sugar).
And when non-GMO is required, then liquid cane sugar is the preferred option, as almost all corn based sweeteners produced in the US is made from GMO corn.
HFCS 55 was formulated specifically to be a direct substitute for Liquid Sucrose with the same solids and the same sweetness. On a dry basis level, liquid sugar will be sweeter than the HFCS 42, so less liquid sugar can be used when the primary function of the HFCS is to add sweetness.
All HFCS to liquid sugar conversions must be properly tested by your R&D team.
