Is corn syrup a substitute for vegetable oil?
Not really. Corn syrup is a sweetner, and it is produced after corn oil is removed from the corn. Corn or vegetable oil is actually oil, and it is different from sugars.

Answer . Corn syrup has more density: about 1.360 g/ml. Vegetable oil is about 0.89 g/ml.
Any cooking oils can be used in place of Canola oil, without any noticeable difference.
HIGH FRUCTOSE corn syrup is not a healthy sweetner according to most doctors. Plain old Corn syrup, which is made up entirely of glucose, is actually one of the best sweeteners you can use because it doesn't contain fructose. Fructose is a form of sugar that doesn't produce an insulin response… leading to overeating and weight gain. Of course there is always sugar, cane syrup, and if one is trying to cut down the sugar there are some sugar replacements that do not break down when baked. If you don't have corn syrup handy, then the recipe below can be used in a pinch, but I wouldn't use it too frequently. Answer #2 Homemade Light Syrup (corn syrup substitute) 2 c. white sugar 3/4 c. water 1/4 tsp. cream of tartar Dash of salt Combine all ingredients in a large, heavy saucepan. Bring to boil while stirring to dissolve sugar. Cover and simmer for 3 minutes making sure that sugar is dissolved and sides of pan are free of sugar particles. Uncover; cook until syrup reaches soft ball stage while stirring often. Cool. Syrup can be stored in airtight container in refrigerator or at room temperature for up to 2 months. (MORE)
Yes, you can substitute olive oil for vegetable oil, but not for all dishes. Olive oil has a strong taste. You would probably not want to use olive oil in most Indian cooking and definitely not in baking. Make sure that the taste of olive oil is compatible with your other ingredients.
I personally substitute vegetable oil with canola oil. It is low in saturated fat and healthier for you. Some canola oils also contain omega 3, which many doctors recommend to their patients. *** Any other oil, corn, canola , olive , can be used as a substitute.( Even melted margarine or butter wi…th limits) . Its mostly the flavor the fat brings to the dish or recipe that will be the difference. I'm over simplifying , but with out more info as to what you are preparing .. that's about it. Another good substitute for vegetable oil is apple sauce. It is healthier, but it does surprisingly taste very good and as it would with the oil. We didn't have any types of oil, and I found that apple sauce answer on yahoo answers. Cool! (: Enjoy... (MORE)
Yes canola oil is a type of cooking oil, there is a slight taste difference but your not likely to notice that in the final product.
Go to web address: ochef.com/989.htm. and I think it. will answer your question about the corn syrup.
To replace one cup of margarine one may use 1 cup shortening plus 1/2 teaspoon salt OR 1 cup butter OR 7/8 cup vegetable oil plus 1/2 teaspoon salt OR 7/8 cup lard plus 1/2 teaspoon salt.
you can use olive oil as a substitute or sunflower oil. Thanks, big help I was trying to make horse treats and i always am missing something!
It depends on what the oil was for. If it is a recipe, especially for baking, you can use butter as substitute for oil. It is not recommended to substitute butter to fry something because it tends to burn in a hot pan, you should use oil to fry. Yes is can! Just don't use as much oil as butter. B…utter is thicker than oil so don't make it too sloppy. (MORE)
not for creaming sugar or for making a laminated dough. In general vegetable shortenings aren't that healthy and should be replaced by butter.
This is a thick, sweet syrup that's popular in America, but hard to find in other countries. Baked goods made with corn syrup are moister and stay fresher longer than those made with sugar. There are two types: dark corn syrup is dark brown and has a slight molasses flavor, while light corn syrup is… almost clear and has a more delicate flavor. The two can be used interchangeably in many recipes. 'Karo' is a well-known brand. The Substitutes Are: golden syrup (Substitute measure for measure) OR honey (This is sweeter than corn syrup, but substitute it measure for measure.) OR molasses (Substitute measure for measure.) (MORE)
Your best guess is to subsiitute in another form of an oil, like canola oil or corn oil, for example.
Yes. Karo syrup is a name brand for corn syrup. Yes they are the exact same thing. Karo is just a brand of a company which makes corn syrup.
One Answer . I think honey can substituted for corn syrup in baking because they both have the same thickness.. A different thought . I think you would have to be very careful about making a one-to-one substitution. Honey is much sweeter than corn syrup and has a distinctive flavor. Success m…ay depend on what recipe you are making. See Related Links. . (MORE)
corn syrup is denser but don't take advice from me I'm just a fifth girl and i was just kind of hypothesising so ya i cant really tell you why it is denser just kind of go with it you know
Yes, vegetable oil is any oil made from any seeds including corn, so corn oil is just one of may possible vegetable sourced oils.
Which is more dense: corn syrup or veggie oil? Well, that's easy! It's corn syrup! There. You have the easiest question in the world answered.
The most healthy oil is canola oil especially for cooking. Out of those two I believe that vegetable is the healthiest.
Yes, I've done it many times. Corn oil is just one type of vegetable oil. Each type has slightly different properties, like flavour, melting point, etc. It is best to replace substitute similar types, as a strongly flavoured oil like extra virgin olive oil, would have a big effect on the final fl…avour of the recipe, and some oils can be heated to much higher temperatures than others before breaking down so are better for frying.

Water is the least viscous, with vegetable oil being 2nd on the list and the most viscous would be corn syrup. Viscosity can be dependent on the liquid, and can also change when a solute is dissolved in the liquid.
Yes all matter has mass. A cubic centimeter of water has a mass of one gram.
You can try canola oil, instead of vegetable oil. That would probably be your best bet.
No, Karo syrup is sugary and vegetable oil is just that. Two totally different substances.
Yes. Corn oil is slightly stronger in flavor however not too noticeable. You will get the same results.
Any neutral-tasting oil can be substituted; canola oil, soybean oil, corn oil, etc. If you want a richer taste (and more saturated fat), you can try clarified butter (ghee), depending on the dish.
Corn oil is a type of oil like vegetable oil. Corn syrup is a very sweet liquid similar to maple syrup.
Possibly, but one is a liquid and the other isn't. I don't know if you could get enough sweetness with the syrup without having too much moisture for the recipe.
No. If you don't have light corn syrup, use 1 cup sugar and 1/4 cup water. If a recipe calls for dark corn syrup, use 1 cup packed brown sugar and 1/4 cup water.
No. Two entirely different things. Corn syrup in a lot of candies which divinity kind of is keeps sugar crystals from forming. I've never done it, but I suppose you could use a simple sugar mixture in place of the corn syrup. Equal parts water and sugar and cook it until it melts the sugar crystals …and then slow boil it for a few minutes. Let it cool and it might work, no guarantee's. (MORE)
100ml of vegetable oil weighs between 92.1 and 92.5 grams depending on the type of oil. Corn Syrup weighs 138 grams per 100ml.
You could use pancake syrup in place of light corn syrup, but the final product will have a maple flavor. Honey is not a good substitute for corn syrup because it is sweeter and has different baking qualities.
Yes, applesauce is a healthy substitute for oil whenever you are baking. Just be sure to use an unsweetened applesauce.
It depends on the recipe and what the intended outcome needs to be. Glycerin (vegetable for food use) provides more elasticity and helps the food substance to retain moisture so that it does not begin to crackle and/or flake. For example, if you are making an icing for a cake, and the recipe require…s glycerin (vegetable, of course), then you should not substitute corn syrup, otherwise you could end up with a icing that looks like a dried mud flat out in some desert. Corn syrup is a glucose based concoction and is high in caloric content as well. Glycerin is low in caloric content, provides elasticity, and retains moisture. (MORE)
NO! Corn syrup is a sweetener and adds stickiness. Vanilla is a strong & distinctive flavor and bouquet. They are nothing alike.
No. Vegetable oil is a completely different substance from corn syrup and will not produce similar results.
No, one is a dry ingredient and the other is wet, one is sweet and the other isn't Two entirely different things.
No, syrup is sweet and oil is not. They do entirely different things in a recipe.
Yes, you can substitute any oil for another oil however it does change the taste a little of what ever you are making.
No, they have almost nothing in common. You can use many different vegetable oils instead of corn oil, sunflower oil for example. If you don't have light corn syrup, substitute 1 cup granulated sugar and 1/4 cup water. If a recipe calls for dark corn syrup, use 1 cup packed brown sugar and 1/4 cup w…ater. (MORE)
I'm no expert, but syrup and oil and two very different ingredients in nature, so you probably couldn't substitute them for each other without some 'interesting' outcomes... stick to the vegetable oils; canola, olive etc.

No. While they look similar, vegetable oil and golden syrup are not the same kind of ingredient (golden syrup is a sweetener), and substituting one for the other will not work.
depends what you want it to turn out like. you can put anything in anything but no saying it would taste good. hope i helped :)
Karo is a brand of corn syrup so, no, it is not a substitute. It IS corn syrup.
No, corn malt is a completely different substance from corn syrup and cannot be substituted.
No, corn syrup is a syrup that is made from corn. Canola oil is an oil that originates from the seed of the rapeseed plant.
The easiest alternative to corn syrup is to make a simple syrup of equal quantities of sugar and water boiled together. It may also benefit from a little salt or cream of tartar to help keep it thick.
You can use any syrup you like; maple syrup, or imitation maple syrup (which is tremendously less expensive than real maple syrup) are the most easily available.
It depends on the recipe. If the recipe requires a large proportion of vegetable oil and you're hoping to substitute it with coconut oil it is not a good idea since coconut oil has a distinctive taste which will overpower the whole dish. Generally, it is a good idea to substitute vegetable oil with …something like canola oil since it has no taste rather than coconut oil. (MORE)
