Powerful substance though. High fructose corn syrup has the properties of a sweetener AND ALSO an oil, which is why it’s so useful in foods. [especially ‘fat-free” heh]
Corn starch has fascinating properties too. Look up some videos (I bet you’ve seen ‘em) on its elastic properties… how it behaves like a liquid when you enter a pool of corn starch water SLOWLY but like a solid if you enter quickly.
