Corn syrup serves different functions in different types of recipes. It controls sugar crystallization in candy, prevents the formation of ice crystals in frozen desserts, enhances fresh fruit flavour in jams and preserves, sweetens and thickens relishes and chutneys. Corn syrup balances sweet and sour flavour profiles, and is therefore a key ingredient in many Asian dishes. When brushed onto baked ham, barbecued meats or baked vegetables corn syrup is an ideal glaze. In baked goods, corn syrup holds moisture and maintains freshness longer. Karo® Light and Dark corn syrups perform similarly in recipes and can usually be used interchangeably. Typically, Karo® Dark Corn Syrup is used when a more robust molasses-like flavour is desired whereas Karo® Light Corn Syrup is used when a more delicate flavour is desired. Recipes usually specify which type to use but the choice may be guided by personal preference.
