Does anyone know the DE (dextrose equivalent) value for karo light syrup. I am looking for something in the range of 42? By my math it appears it should be about 45 but I am not sure if that is correct. 10g x 1.36 /30

I'm pretty sure that regular corn syrups (NOT high fructose corn syrup) like Karo are pure dextrose/glucose.

I extrapolated a bit, as karo light is "regular" corn syrup. http://class.fst.ohio-state.edu/fst621/Additive%20classes/Sweet/cornsy.htm
You could contact the company if you need more certainty. http://www.karosyrup.com/ContactUs.aspx?b=wc&bsid=wcsid
