CORN SUGAR IS MADE CHEAPLY TO COMPETE WITH CANE
Corn sugar, that costs no more than cane, has been turned out by a process developed by H. C. Gore, a department of agriculture chemist. It is said that the product can be melted and cast into molds, like the fondant made from cane or beet sugar, and used in the candy industry. The operation involves no unusual equipment, and consists essentially of mashing cornstarch, or hominy, with malt, which liquefies the product.
