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

It has a DE of 42 according to "How Baking Works".

I extrapolated a bit, as karo light is "regular" corn syrup.
You could contact the company if you need more certainty.

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

Pure dextrose has a DE of 100 and is a powder... not a liquid. So, no, Karo is NOT "pure glucose", it is partially hydrolyzed corn starch.
