Dan Sukker's Light Syrup is the classic Swedish syrup for making sweets, cookies, desserts, sauces, or glazing meat dishes. The premier Swedish sugar producer, Dan Sukker's syrup is obtained as a by-product when white sugar is produced from beet or cane sugar in a sugar refinery. Syrup is a viscous sugar solution where some of the sugar has been broken down into glucose and fructose. This combination of different sugar types prevents crystallization, while the very high sugar content (approx. 80%) guarantees a long shelf life. Syrup is especially useful as a baking ingredient, but is also used for making confectionery.
