Have you ever heard of HFCS or “High Fructose Corn Syrup”? HFCS is a liquefied alternative to table sugar. It has been around since 1957 and was then commercialized by the late 1960’s by the Japanese.
There are two types of HFCS that are used in the market today, HFCS 42 and HFCS 55, and both are commonly used in the US. HFCS 55 is used for sugar replacement in beverages and sometimes in confectionary food and baked goodies. HFCS 42 is used also but not as often as HFCS 55.
Actually, there is no proven evidence that HFCS is better than table sugar. Both can be used as sweetener but they come in different forms, solid and liquid.
