Worldwide Market Reports added Latest Research Report titled “High Fructose Corn Syrup Market – Market Perspective by Comprehensive Analysis Growth Prediction to 2022”
High fructose corn syrup (HFCS) is a type of sweetener made from corn starch, which is processed by glucose isomerase to help convert glucose into fructose. HFCS was first marketed by Clinton Corn Processing Company with the Japanese Agency of Industrial Science and Technology in the 1970s, and was first discovered in 1965. HFCS is used as a sweetener over granulated sugar, as it is relatively easier to handle and more cost-effective than sugar. The United States Food and Drug Administration approved HFCS as a safe ingredient for food and beverage manufacturing. The demand for HFCS is thus increasing, in turn, boosting growth of the global high fructose corn syrup market.
However, overconsumption of added sugar in any form, including HFCS, is a major health concern, resulting in the onset of obesity. The World Health Organization recommends that people limit their consumption of added sugars to 10% of calories. However, according to experts typical consumption of empty calories is nearly twice that level in the U.S. As HFCS has a profile similar to sugar and costs lesser than sugar lower price, it is illegally used to stretch honey. These factors pose as a major restraints for growth of the high fructose corn syrup market. Furthermore, HFCS is associated with other health complications and should be avoided by those suffering from fructose malabsorption.
