Technical Document

Brief Overview

Liquid glucose is a viscous, colorless or light yellow syrup with high viscosity, humidity, sweetness, and pervasiveness. It is derived from purified corn starch through a process involving enzymatic hydrolysis, decoloration, ion exchange, and purification. Known for its moderately sweet flavor, liquid glucose serves as a starch sugar widely applied in the food industry. Notable advantages include anti-crystallinity and a lower freezing point, making it a common ingredient in candies and beverages.

Manufacturing Process

Commercial liquid glucose is manufactured through the enzymatic hydrolysis of starch, with various crops serving as potential starch sources. The resulting product is part of inverted sugar, constituting a roughly equal mixture of glucose and fructose.

Food Industry

Liquid glucose is employed as an ingredient in sweets, ice creams, jams, jellies, biscuits, and liquors due to its non-crystallizing properties, moderate sweetness, and nutritional value. Additionally, it serves as the foundation for artificial honey.

Pharmaceutical Industry

In the pharmaceutical industry, liquid glucose finds application in cough syrups and other vitamin-based tonics. It is also utilized as a granulating agent in tablet coating processes.

Other Applications

Liquid glucose plays a role in the production of shoe polish and is applied in the leather industry during the tanning process. Moreover, it serves as a raw material for the synthesis of gluconic acid, citric acid, and kojic acid.
