Corn Syrup Substitute?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know of a good corn syrup substitute? My hope is that there is something simple that you can buy at a store but I'm willing to make one also.

I think it depends on how much you are using and what you are making with it. If you don't need much you could try: honey, molasses, maple syrup, light or dark agave nectar. Light agave nectar might be the closest in flavor. I put it in waffles. If making cooked candies the subs may not work...IDK. I don't make much cooked candy, just pb fudge and it only takes a little bit of corn syrup.

Maybe someone else will give you some ideas.

I would think it would depend on what you're using it for. I know that most marshmallow recipes call for it, but you can make marshmallows just using sugar. Corn syrup in marshmallows just kind of kicks and speeds up the boiled sugar a bit and helps the texture a little, but they're still quite lovely without it. So I think the answer depends on what you're using it in and why it's in the recipe.

Lundberg Family Farms makes gluten free brown rice syrup. I use it on my cream of brown rice cereal daily.

I am actually trying to make marshmallows.

No, I am not allergic to corn but I thought it would be interesting to try to make corn-free marshmallows since I can't seem to find any.

LOL. Figures :lol:

This is the recipe I used without corn syrup. They were very good. I actually like this recipe better than the one I tried that used corn syrup. It may take longer for the sugar to get to the soft ball stage, that is the only drawback. Keep in mind that powdered sugar usually contains cornstarch, so confectioners sugar is a safer bet if corn is a problem.

I picked up some Tapioca Syrup through Allergen Grocer as a Corn Syrup replacement and it works well. I also got Sorghum Syrup to replace Molasses and it also works wonderfully in that respect. I heard the Tate and Lyle's Golden Syrup is also gluten-free and Cornfree (the tin canned ones, although the others Golden Syrups they make are said not to be cornfree) but it's hard to come by out this way.

    I sorta bump into walls a lot more, misjudge distances and hit my shoulder on door frames in a sort of totter fashion, catch myself almost falling sometimes on stairs, drop stuff, find I lose heat and cold sensitivity and often burn myself, or cut myself. These stick around for a while and slowly taper off. My ataxia normally hits hard the first day within hours of consuming the offending food I can lose full motor control and end up on the floor.
    Thank you so much for your response. Do you get dizzy, well it's not dizzy, it's weird feeling where you feel like you are walking in space. And my skin just feels different, all nervy and more sensitive but not, like I can't feel as much.
It can take months for the reaction to die down, my last incident left me with come and go issues for months. And I seem to have suffered other issues that have not resolved for the past 9months. If you did indeed suffer ataxia damage, those will wean off over months-years.  Just because your levels are "normal" does not mean they are right. Everyone is different in what they need and the "Normal" levels are outdated and just a minimum. Supplementing still might boost you up and make you fe
