Catalysts - Enzymes - Syrup and Slimming Food.
Syrup is the name given to a saturated sugar or starch solution.
Starch is a natural
The starch in starch syrup may come from many sources.
Corn starch and potato starch are common.
A carbohydrase can be used to
convert starch syrup into sugar syrup.
An enzyme called isomerase can
convert glucose in sugar syrup into fructose syrup.
Fructose is much
sweeter than glucose. A small amount of
fructose in a food can replace a larger amount of glucose
without losing the sweet taste. This is useful
in preparing slimming food since a small amount of
fructose is less fattening than a larger amount of glucose.
