What is Corn Syrup Used For? Health Benefits and Side Effects of Corn Syrup in Food

High fructose corn syrup is one of the main ingredients of soft drinks and other beverages. Corn syrup is also used in jams, sauces, bakery products and desserts. In the pharmaceutical sector, it is used in cough syrups and ant-acids. It can be used to treat constipation in infants. Corn syrup is also beneficial for smokers and is largely used in the leather industry as well. Fructose present in corn syrup is not good for health if the intake is excessive. Fructose is not an easily digestible sugar without glucose. Excessive fructose is converted rapidly by the liver to fats which can result in insulin resistance and ultimately lead to diabetes.
