Sec.  184.1865  Corn syrup.

    (a) Corn syrup, commonly called ``glucose sirup'' or ``glucose 
syrup,'' is obtained by partial hydrolysis of corn starch with safe and

(dried glucose sirup). Depending on the degree of hydrolysis, corn syrup 
may contain, in addition to glucose, maltose and higher saccharides.
    (b) The ingredient meets the specifications as defined and 
determined in Sec.  168.120(b) or Sec.  168.121(a) of this chapter, as 
appropriate. FDA, in cooperation with the National Academy of Sciences, 
is undertaking a study to determine if additional food-grade 
specifications for corn syrup are necessary.
    (c) In accordance with Sec.  184.1(b)(1), the ingredient is used in 
food with no limitation other than current good manufacturing practice.
    (d) Prior sanctions for this ingredient different from the uses 
established in this section do not exist or have been waived.
