I've noticed that often when using recipes from the US that corn syrup is called for, and I was wondering what the best alternative to it would be to get in the UK? Maple syrup is another well-known sweetener from nature. It is thinner than corn syrup and has a much richer and distinctive taste. It also has a deep brown color. Hobbs, Larry (2009). "Starch: Chemistry and Technology". In BeMiller, James; Whistler, Roy (eds.). Sweeteners from Starch: Production, Properties and Uses (PDF) (3rded.). Elsevier Inc. pp.808–813. ISBN 978-0-12-746275-2 . Retrieved 5 December 2019.While it is gaining popularity around the world, unless you regularly cook recipes from the UK you probably don’t have this ingredient on hand. If you are interested in trying it out though, you can easily find it online. Depending on the brand of syrup you have, it may be sweeter than corn syrup. If you think this is the case, start with ¾ the amount and add more as needed. 6. Agave Nectar

Choosing the best substitute will depend on your recipe, as well as what you have available. Moreover, it may depend on your dietary preferences. Another natural option that has gained popularity in recent years is agave nectar. Agave has a more neutral taste than honey. So, it can be a nice alternative to corn syrup when you don’t want to impact the flavor.There is a dark corn syrup though. Dark corn syrup has a richer flavor, it is sometimes even a bit salty. It is also a darker color. While the richness in color and taste is not ideal for some recipes, it can work in many. Therefore, if you have some dark corn syrup leftover from another recipe ( or can’t find any regular light corn syrup at the store) you can use it as a substitute. This DIY corn syrup is not quite as sweet as store-bought corn syrup. However, you will not notice it much in most recipes.

Most recipes that call for corn syrup are referring to light corn syrup. Light corn syrup is a clear corn syrup that has a neutral taste and color. Therefore, it is the most popular choice for candy making and baking. I suggest starting with ¾ of what the recipe calls for and tasting your batter. If it’s not quite sweet enough, add more agave nectar ( up to a 1:1 exchange). Fructose, high fructose corn syrup, sucrose and health. James M. Rippe. New York. 2014. ISBN 978-1-4899-8077-9. OCLC 876051670. {{ cite book}}: CS1 maint: location missing publisher ( link) CS1 maint: others ( link)Honey has a similar consistency to corn syrup and its golden color compliments many recipes that call for corn syrup. However, while it offers a similar texture and sweetness it also adds its own distinct taste. Glucose syrup was the primary corn sweetener in the United States prior to the expanded use of high fructose corn syrup production in 1964. [14] HFCS is a variant in which other enzymes are used to convert some of the glucose into fructose. [15] The resulting syrup is sweeter and more soluble. [ citation needed] Add up to 2 teaspoons of lemon juice to your corn syrup if desired (for better flavor) especially in baked goods or icings. Do not use in candy making.
