Corn syrup is a sweetener made from maize (corn). The process required to convert the corn into simple sugar syrup
involves enzymes from two different bacteria and a fungus. High Fructose Corn Syrup undergoes further enzymatic
processing to yield higher levels of fructose in the final product.
Corn syrup is not a natural product. While it starts from a natural substance, the end product is the result of human
biochemistry using reactions that would never occur in the natural environment. Corn syrup or High Fructose Corn Syrup
is not “naturally” found in nature.
