Liquid sucrose, as the name suggests, is a sweet-tasting, clear liquid that has a characteristic odor. It has many food applications, so its manufacturing process must meet the strict requirements outlined by the FDA. The liquid is made by mixing purified sucrose crystals with hot water, which dissolves the crystals to create a viscous, clear liquid. The solution is then filtered and cooled before being stored.
As a food-grade natural sugar, sucrose solution can be used in a variety of food applications. For instance, it is commonly used in baking as a sweetener. Many processed foods also contain sucrose solution. Generally, many canned or bottled products contain this ingredient. These include soft drinks and dairy products.
It is important to note that manufacturing, storage and handling conditions of the compound must meet the standards required by the FDA. Therefore, consumers should always be mindful of where they purchase this ingredient.
Note: Seidler specifically provides Domino® liquid sucrose.
