High Fructose Corn Syrup

Fructose-glucose syrup, also known as high fructose corn syrup (HFCS), is a starch syrup made from plant starch through hydrolysis and isomerization (and purification). With unique flavor, it is an important sweetening agent. Since its main ingredient is fructose and glucose, it is called “fructose-glucose syrup”.

According to fructose content, fructose-glucose syrup is divided into three specifications, F42, F55 and F90, among which F55 is the most frequently-used one and F42 is the second frequently-used one. 

Product Introduction

Fructose-glucose syrup, also known as high fructose corn syrup (HFCS), is a starch syrup made from plant starch through hydrolysis and isomerization (and purification). With unique flavor, it is an important sweetening agent. Since its main ingredient is fructose and glucose, it is called “fructose-glucose syrup”.


According to fructose content, fructose-glucose syrup is divided into three specifications, F42, F55 and F90, among which F55 is the most frequently-used one and F42 is the second frequently-used one. It can replace cane sugar; its sweetness is close to cane sugar with the same concentration, while its flavor is similar to natural juice—with faint scent and refreshing taste. It owns cold sweet feature under 40℃, and its sweetness rises as the temperature drops. As a result, it has been widely used in food and beverage industry. 



Product Features

1. Have a fruity faint scent, cool and refreshing feeling

2. Freezing temperature is low; moisture absorption and retention capacity is good. 

3. It doesn’t cover up the flavor and owns cold sweetness. 

4. Very strong permeability

5. Maillard reaction


Purpose and Function

1.It restrains protein consumption in the body, combines with cells in the body, and releases energy stably and gradually. Therefore, it serves as nutrient supply for athletes and manual workers; it helps them to maintain physical power and remove fatigue quickly. 

2.Bacteria in the oral cavity have bad fermentation with fructose, so it protects tooth enamel and prevents dental decay.

3.With special detoxication, it relieves liver from burden greatly, promotes ethanolysis and prevents drunkenness. 


Product Application

It is used in food industry such as beverage, soft drink, juice, fruit wine, bread, pastry, fruit can, jam, preserved fruit, dairy product, oral liquid and cold drink.
