corn syrup processing

Corn syrup processing

Corn syrup (also called glucose syrup )  is a food syrup which is made from the corn starch  and contains varying amounts of maltose and higher oligosaccharides, depending on the grade. Unlike other sweeteners, corn syrup doesn't crystallize and turn grainy when it's cold. Baked goods, frostings, sauces, and candies made with corn syrup are moister and stay fresh longer than those made with sugar. There are two types: light and dark, which has a stronger flavor with a hint of molasses.

5) . Ion exchange process : Ion exchange machine will attract all the cation and anion  in the clean glucose syrup , it will improve the glucose quality.Small corn syrup plant will do not need this machine .
