Is there really a difference between glucose & corn syrup??
I drive over 1/2 hour away just to get to the nearest Michael's or Joanne's they are the only ones that sell glucose ....but the ONLY ingredient in it is corn syrup???
Also....What about Wilton glycerine (only ingredient is glycerin) & pharmacy glycerin(ingredient:99.5% glycerin & Anhydrous--skin protectant) from the pharmacy?----Believe it or not that's the only place I found here that sells it.
When I do drive to Michael's or Joanne's I make sure I stock up on both and buy all they have on the shelf. But .....just in case if I ran short and needed some.....I was just wondering if there was a difference.
I use these both in the Rolled fondant recipe in the Wilton magazine.
The more general term glucose syrup is often used synonymously with corn syrup, since it is most commonly made from corn starch.
The viscosity and sweetness of the syrup depends on the extent to which the hydrolysis reaction has been carried out. To distinguish different grades of syrup, they are rated according to their "dextrose equivalent" (DE).
