  •  I suppose that depends on which syrup you mean (2+ / 0-)

    Unquestionably white sugar should be expected to contain nearly pure Sucrose - the disaccharide of glucose (dextrose) and fructose.

    What corn syrups contain depend, in large part, on the initial and final processing of the cornstarch feedstock. By and large though, a significant proportion of stuff sold as Corn Syrup is glucose. (Significantly more than would be predicted as the product of disproportionating Sucrose to it's contained saccharides).

    Then there is HFCS - totally different kind of beast.
