What is Golden Syrup?
Golden syrup is a thick liquid sugar that’s a rich amber colour. It's also called light treacle or golden treacle and is what’s known as an invert sugar. This is a mixture of glucose and fructose in liquid form. It’s stable during baking and will not crystallize.
It has a thick, treacle-like consistency at room temperature but has a more subtle flavour in comparison to treacle, honey and maple syrup. The colour is usually a deep golden amber.
Golden syrup is made in the process of refining sugar cane or sugar beets.
Tate and Lyle's golden syrup is the most famous brand, and one that I love using for baking!
