How Many Grams in a Gallon of Corn Syrup?

Corn syrup is an indispensable ingredient for creating delicious baked goods, treats and no-bake recipes. It adds moisture and sweetness while preventing crystallized sugar from crystallizing - creating a creamy texture ideal for candies, caramels and desserts. Available at most grocery stores as Karo or dark corn syrup brand names - and sometimes sold under their house label at certain grocers - corn syrup makes perfect additions for many baked good treats and no-bake treats!

Corn syrup has long been associated with unhealthy ingredients, but there's no evidence to show it has worse health effects than regular sugar. Furthermore, high fructose corn syrup (HFCS), found in most processed food and subjected to much criticism (Cooking Light) should also be consumed sparingly; nonetheless it should still be eaten responsibly and responsibly in moderation.

When substituting corn syrup with another liquid sweetener such as sugar or honey, be wary that adding water could cause serious splattering and burns if done improperly! When substituting 1:1 you can still get similar results - however be cautious as adding hot sugar may create dangerous splatter and burns!

Agave nectar makes an ideal alternative to corn syrup for most recipes without altering its taste. Honey should also be considered, though for this purpose agave nectar would work better due to being cold-resistant than most sugars.
