Newbie here – feeling rather green & I haven’t even tasted my first efforts yet!

Does anyone know the UK equivalent of corn syrup as used in US recipes?

I’ve looked on the net & some say you can use golden syrup as an alternative but then others say to use glucose.

Does anyone know for sure?

Both are acceptable things to replace corn syrup…Glucose is, ususally, just a corn syrup that has a higher percentage of glucose to other sweeteners. Gold syrup is supposed to be very similar and I know many from the Uk that use that instead of corn syrup…either is acceptable…
It depends on what you are making that would decide which one is better for a specific recipe.
