- Still digesting some of this info and came upon the discussion of HFCS and am wondering if that is an option since I believe it is 50+ % fructose and the balance is glucose which seems to be what inverted sugar is anyway. Am I on the right track or should I stick with the cane sugar?

- Found this from a sugar distributor, any comments?
Invert Sugar is the result of inversion (hydrolysis) of sucrose, that is, the splitting of sucrose molecules into their dextrose and fructose components. The degree of inversion can range from slight to great, depending upon the amount of heat, acid or enzyme applied. "Medium Invert" means half of the sucrose molecules present have been split into their fructose/dextrose components, and the remaining half is undisturbed sucrose molecules. "Total Invert" means all of the sucrose molecules have been split into their fructose and dextrose components, with consequently no sucrose remaining. Both medium and total invert syrups are commercially available.
Not sure what it costs but will know tomorrow?
