Liquid glucose is colorless or light yellow, viscous syrup that is derived from purified corn starch through hydrolysis by the double enzyme method, decoloration, ion exchange, and purification. It has a moderately sweet flavor and is a starch sugar product that is widely used in the food industry. Liquid glucose has a high viscosity, humidity, sweetness, and pervasion. It also has such advantages as anti-crystallinity and a lower freezing point. It is widely used in candy and beverages.
