What is the Average Cost of High Fructose Corn Syrup per Gallon/Cup? Average High Fructose Corn Syrup Price

High Fructose Corn Syrup (or HFCS) is a manmade sweetener found in a wide range of processing foods. It is increasingly common as a replacement to the ordinary table sugar. HFCS is cheap to produce and easy to preserve. HFCS makes up a large volume of ingredients for many food manufacturers. HFCS55 is the most widely used type with 55% fructose and 45% glucose. It is used in food products to soften texture and avoid crystallization of sugar, besides being used to enhance flavor. The average cost of HFCS is $2 per gallon and about 12 cents per cup.
