A carbohydrase can be used to convert starch syrup into sugar syrup.

An enzyme called isomerase can convert glucose in sugar syrup

into fructose syrup. Fructose is much sweeter than glucose.

A small amount of fructose in a food can replace a larger amount of glucose

without losing the sweet taste.

This is useful in preparing slimming food since a small amount of fructose

is less fattening than a larger amount of glucose.
