Opis

KARO® CORN SYRUP, the leading national brand of corn syrup, is great when used in recipes that call for something sweet, like baked goods, pies, popcorn balls and in sauces for meat and poultry because it is a natural sweetener. Most famous as the primary ingredient in Pecan Pie, Karo has been known for its trusted quality since 1902.



How should Karo syrup be stored?

Before or after opening, Karo syrup may be stored at room temperature. Storage conditions affect product quality. Light corn syrup may turn slightly yellow with age, but this is normal and not harmful.

How long can Karo syrup be stored?

Karo syrup is safe to eat for an indefinite period of time whether it has been opened or not opened. However, for best results we recommend using before the "Best by" date stamped on the container. Bottles may be refrigerated after opening, however, the syrup will be thicker and slower to pour.


Does corn syrup serve any function in recipes besides sweetening?

Corn syrup serves different functions in different types of recipes and in products you purchase. It controls sugar crystallization in candy, prevents the formation of ice crystals in frozen desserts, enhances fresh fruit flavor in jams and preserves, sweetens and thickens relishes. Corn syrup balances sweet and sour flavor profiles, and is therefore a key ingredient in many Asian dishes.

When brushed onto baked ham, barbecued meats, baked vegetables or fresh fruit, it is an ideal glaze. In baked goods, corn syrup holds moisture and maintains freshness longer. 

Can Karo light and dark corn syrups be interchanged in recipes?

Yes. Karo light and dark corn syrups perform similarly in recipes and can usually be used interchangeably. Recipes usually specify which type to use but the choice may be guided by personal preference. Typically, light corn syrup is used when a delicately sweet flavor is desired, such as in fruit sauces and jams. Karo light corn syrup is made with real vanilla.

Dark corn syrup is made with refiners' syrup, a type of molasses. With its more robust flavor and color, it is ideal for many baked goods.

Both Karo light and dark corn syrups, along with Karo pancake syrup, are ideal toppings for pancakes, waffles, French toast, and biscuits.

Karo Lite (reduced calorie) syrup can be substituted in many recipes calling for light or dark corn syrup, but is not recommended for cereal bars or candy making. 


Can corn syrup be substituted for brown sugar or granulated sugar in recipes?

Although corn syrup and granulated sugars are both sweeteners, it is not possible to use them interchangeably in recipes. Because corn syrup is a liquid, it cannot be substituted for granulated sugar without adjusting other ingredients, particularly in baked goods. For best results, follow recipes developed especially for corn syrup. In sugar-sweetened beverages, however, it's easy to experiment with corn syrup as a ready-blending substitute.

Can corn syrup be substituted for honey or molasses?

While acceptable in some recipes, this is generally not recommended as the finished product will have different flavor characteristics.


What is high fructose corn syrup and how is it different from regular corn syrup?

Corn syrup is a sweetener derived from fresh corn picked and processed at its peak state of flavor and sweetness. This is in all Karo Corn Syrup products used for baking sold in retail stores. By contrast, high fructose corn syrup starts with regular corn syrup, which is modified by further processing and treated with enzymes to break it into two different forms of sweetness, fructose and glucose.


Why do food manufacturers use high fructose corn syrup?

Originally, high fructose corn syrup was developed as a lower cost substitute for sugar. It is widely used today as a sweetener in beverages, bakery products, yogurts, and other products that traditionally had used sugar as a sweetener.


What is the controversy about high fructose corn syrup and why are so many people avoiding it?

Since the early 1980's, high fructose corn syrup consumption has tripled and recently estimated at 60 pounds per person annually. During the same time period, the rate of obesity has also increased dramatically. Some researchers believe there is a link between the increase in obesity and the increase in high fructose corn syrup consumption. There are other researchers, however, that do not believe there is a connection.


Do any of Karo's Corn Syrup products used in baking that are sold in retail stores contain high fructose corn syrup?

No. When Karo was first introduced in 1902, it contained 0 grams of high fructose corn syrup. Like the original, all Karo Corn Syrup products used in baking that you can purchase today contain 0 grams of high fructose corn syrup. Karo will never add high fructose corn syrup to current consumer products or introduce new corn syrup products containing high fructose corn syrup.


Do other brands of corn syrup currently contain high fructose corn syrup and if so, how can I tell?

Yes. Karo is currently the only leading national brand of corn syrup that contains 0 grams of high fructose corn syrup. Many other brands of corn syrup do contain high fructose corn syrup. Check the ingredient list on the back of the package where high fructose corn syrup must be listed if it is in the product. You can also look for Karo's package labels that clearly announce "0 grams high fructose corn syrup." If you're looking to avoid high fructose corn syrup, you'll get Karo's premium quality and performance with a guarantee of 0 grams high fructose corn syrup.


What is the gluten status of Karo?

All Karo Syrup is gluten free and is produced in a facility free of gluten. 


Does "light" mean Karo light corn syrup contains fewer calories? Is light corn syrup the same as "white" corn syrup?

The clear Karo corn syrup has been called "light" since the 1940s, before "light" became a popular description for reduced-calorie products. The term "light" in this case refers to the color, and not the number of calories. Many consumers refer to light corn syrup as "white" corn syrup.

The terms "light" and "dark" refer to the differences in the colors of Karo syrups. Both types have the same number of calories - 60 calories per tablespoon, and both are fat free and cholesterol free foods. For nutrient information on the products, visit our our Nutrition Facts section.

Is there a reduced calorie version available?

For those looking for fewer calories, Karo Lite Syrup is available. This contains 33% less calories than regular corn syrup, and has no high fructose corn syrup.

When making candy or cereal bars, it is best to use regular Karo dark or Karo light syrup.

What is corn syrup?

Corn syrup is a mildly sweet, concentrated solution of dextrose and other sugars derived from corn starch. It is naturally sweet. Corn syrup contains between 15% to 20% dextrose (glucose) and a mixture of various other types of sugar.

Is high fructose corn syrup the same as corn syrup?

No. high fructose corn syrup and corn syrup are distinctly different products. When Karo was introduced in 1902, it did not contain high fructose corn syrup. Sometime in the 1970's, it was added to the Karo light and pancake syrups. As a result of consumer requests, the high fructose corn syrup has now been removed and all Karo products are high fructose corn syrup free.

What is refiners' syrup? Why is it used in Karo dark corn syrup?

Refiners' syrup is a type of molasses. It gives dark corn syrup its flavor and color.


When was the ingredient "vanilla" added to Karo light corn syrup?

Vanilla has always been an ingredient in Karo light corn syrup. It gives extra smoothness and richness to the flavor.

Should Karo syrup be used for infant feeding?

We are aware that some health care professionals suggest feeding Karo syrup to infants in a formula or for relief of constipation. Because corn syrup, like many other foods is not a sterile product, there is a remote possibility that it may contain C. botulinum spores.

These spores are common in the environment and generally not harmful to older children and adults. In fact, in the FDA study conducted in 1991, corn syrup and other syrups are not identified as food sources of C. botulinum spores for infants.

However, because Karo is not specifically intended for infant feeding, we suggest you consult your pediatrician for advice.
