tldr /xbox generation version:
Request thoughts on using glucose as a sweetener as opposed to sucrose (which is fructose+glucose)
Version for those of us with reading skills and who give a damn:
I have been looking at switching to a vitamin powder instead of swallowing a pill at the start of the day, and for the granularity a powdered form offers for fine tuning the dose. I have heard they can taste pretty nasty, so in anticipation of that I am considering dropping the brown sugar in my mix and adding a slightly larger amount of glucose syrup (aka corn syrup)
Note this is NOT high fructose corn syrup which is further modified to covert some of the glucose to fructose, according to Wikipedia.
Anyway I was hoping someone can tell me if doing this would be better or worse than just upping the brown sugar content till it tastes better. Either way I would reduce some other carbs to match the calories.
I don’t currently use glucose syrup, this would be a swap. I could also use glucose powder.
