What Are Corn Syrup Solids?

Corn syrup solids are made from concentrating corn syrup, a liquid sweetener made from corn, to less than 10 percent water. In addition, the glucose content of the syrup must be at least 88 percent by weight to qualify as a corn syrup solid. Corn syrup is partially hydrolyzed liquid corn starch that is made with the addition of the enzymes amylase and glucoamylase, which break the starch down into glucose.
