Glucose Syrup CFR

According to the CFR, glucose syrup is a nutritive sweetener made from edible starch.

  • For FDA-regulated foods, if glucose syrup used in a food product contains protein derived from wheat, the word wheat must be stated on the food label.
  • For USDA-regulated foods, glucose syrup could contain protein derived from wheat, and this might not be stated on the food label.
  • Bottom line: If you don't see the word wheat on the label of an FDA-regulated product containing glucose syrup, the glucose syrup does not contain wheat protein. Glucose syrup in a USDA-regulated product could contain protein derived from wheat.
