Glucose Syrups

Südzucker Glucose Syrups are colourless, viscous, and sweet-tasting liquid sweeteners that we produce by enzymatic hydrolysis of wheat starch.

The unique properties of our Glucose Syrups go beyond sweetening alone, and a wide variety of products including gummy bears, jams and jellies benefit from that. When you use our Glucose Syrups, you can achieve the taste, consistency and shine you desire for great mouthfeel and visual appeal, while you also increase the shelf life and stability of your product.

Our Glucose syrups are widely used in the food industry and are also popular in the confectionery, bakery, ice-cream, jam and beverage industries, to name just a few.

General Benefits

  • Significantly improves the crust colour of baked goods for an appetizing look and feel (Maillard reaction)
  • Noticeably enhances the texture and shine of end products (e.g. jellies, jams, or gummy bears)
  • Easy dosage and miscibility for your desired taste and sweetening effect
  • Improves fusing behaviour and softness of end products like ice cream
  • Depresses freezing point
  • High stability and long shelf life (preserving function) due to strong microbiological stability
  • Prevents crystallization

We offer a wide variety of glucose syrups. Depending on which product you use, our Glucose Syrup will differ in glucose content, dry matter content, and the degree of polymerization.

Please choose the Glucose Syrup that suits your application preferences and requirements from the following standard portfolio:
