Glucose Syrups

Glucose, maltose and glucose-fructose syrups from Cargill represent a unique combination of quality, global availability and tailoring to meet the fermentable sugar-requirements of brewers.


Our syrups are the result of many years spent refining proven, traditional manufacturing techniques. The products we offer today are purer, made to more demanding specifications, and support a wider range of applications. Their quality and heritage mean Cargill syrups are the trusted source for brewers around the world.


With Cargill syrups, you have the reassurance of a solid, reliable and visible global supply chain that brings the same high-quality ingredients to your worldwide manufacturing facilities, no matter what you need, or how you need it.

The Cargill approach includes the delivery of certified raw materials through a risk-reducing network of manufacturing locations and can include our exclusive vendor managed inventory system. This system provides automatic delivery of required ingredients based upon forecast and actual usage.

This global scope is balanced by a local market presence, reflecting the precise needs of your business.


Fermentability is determined by the availability of fermentable sugars, dextrose being 100% fermentable. The advantage of glucose syrups is the ability to modify the degree of fermentation and the speed at which the sugars are fermented.

Adjuncts / glucoses are a cost effective form of carbohydrate used because they provide extract at a lower cost than is available from malted barley or to modify the flavor of the beer.

Our liquid adjuncts help brewers face the uncertain availability of traditional dry adjuncts while allowing them to optimize malt utilization and achieve consistent quality and flavor stability. Cargill’s adjuncts can also provide cost savings as liquid adjuncts are less expensive to handle compared to dry ingredients.

 Some Cargill products are only approved for use in certain geographies, end uses, and/or at certain usage levels. It is the customer's responsibility to determine, for a particular geography, that (i) the Cargill product, its use and usage levels, (ii) the customer's product and its use, and (iii) any claims made about the customer's product, all comply with applicable laws and regulations.
