Glucose syrup, enhances the flavour and volume of certain foods. It prevents sugar from crystallising and is therefore used in the sweet and confectionery industries. It is a product that improves the colour, texture, flavour and stability of many foods. It is therefore useful in a variety of products such as beverages (both alcoholic and otherwise), confectionery and dairy products. It is used to sweeten jams and jellies and as a medium for cough medication and vitamin tonics.

The liquid that is used as fake blood in the entertainment industry usually contains glucose syrup. It is both inexpensive and acts as a thickening agent, both of which are essential for fake blood mixtures.

Glucose syrup is used as a replacement for sugar or honey in many recipes that require a lesser degree of sweetness. It is also used in fruit and vegetable conserves and in the production of tomato sauce and ketchup.
