Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9812342A1] The invention relates to new, starch based, enzymatically converted glucose syrup compositions, having a DE value (Dextrose Equivalent) between 30 and 50 and a sugar spectrum in which the fraction of DP1-DP3 ranges from 30 to 60 %, the fraction of DP4-DP6 ranges from 25 to 16 %, the fraction of DP7-DP9 ranges from 14 to 4 %, and the fraction above DP9 ranges from 38 to 18 % on d.s. The invention also relates to a process for preparing glucose syrup by treating starch with enzymes, comprising treating a liquified starch substrate by means of an enzyme mixture in a single enzymatic conversion step, whereas said enzyme mixture comprises a bacterial alpha amylase, a maltogenic amylase and a glucoamylase. This process is particularly suitable for preparing the new glucose syrup compositions of the invention.
