Glucose syrups are key ingredients in confectionery, beer, soft drinks, jams, sauces and ice creams, as well as in pharmaceuticals. They offer functional benefits and are economical to use.

This book is for all those involved in the processing, buying and using of these syrups. Emphasis is on practical information – recipes are included where relevant, and appendices offer commonly-used calculations and useful data. Food technologists can use the book to make syrup choices for a particular application, and to adapt recipes in order to replace sugar or other ingredients.
