    Brief Overview

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

    Manufacturing Process

    Liquid glucose is produced commercially via the enzymatic hydrolysis of starch. Many crops can be used as a source of starch. Commercial glucose occurs as a component of inverted sugar, a roughly 1:1 mixture of glucose and fructose.

    Food Industry

    Liquid glucose is used as an additive in sweets, ice creams, jams, jellies, biscuits, and liquors because it does not crystallize and has moderate sweetness and nutritional value. It also forms the base of artificial honey.

    Pharmaceutical Industry     

    Liquid glucose is used in cough syrups and other vitamin-based tonics. It is used as a granulating agent in tablet coating.

    Other Applications

    Liquid glucose is used in the manufacturing of shoe polish and leather industries during the tanning process. It is used as a raw material for gluconic acid, citric acid, and kojic acid.
