Liquid Glucose

Liquid glucose is a liquid solution of a nutritive sweetener, obtained through starch hydrolysis, using rice as a raw material, purified and concentrated to form required solids. It is also known as glucose syrup or rice syrup. It is an odorless and clear yellow viscous sweet syrup, processed and stored in an extremely hygienic environment.

Liquid glucose has a wide range of applications and is particularly useful where high concentrations of invert sugars are required. It also has the advantages of anti - crystalline, a low freezing point and a much higher degree of sweetening compared to sucrose.

Sweetener & Preservative 

Liquid glucose or rice syrup is used for commercially prepared foods, as a thickener, sweetener, and humectant. It is also used in the confectionary industry as an ideal additive for flavored sweets, hard candies, chocolate manufacturing, and in ice creams as a sweetener to enhance flavor and as an agent to lower its freezing point.

Glucose syrup also acts as a preservative for food, keeping it moist and fresh over long periods of time.

Liquid glucose also forms the base of artificial honey.
