Question about 'Caro' Instant Drink
    #2722854 - 05/24/04 02:51 PM (13 years, 4 months ago)

I live in the UK and am finding it hard to locate Karo Syrup. I saw this stuff in Holland and Barret chain health food shop called 'Caro Instant Beverage'.

Its a powdered drink, and was wondering if anyone could comment on it suitability for use in agar and liquid cultures.

Ingredients: Soluble solids of roasted malted barley, barley, chicory and rye.

No, that probably won't work. Karo syrup is also known as corn syrup. It's everywhere here in the states, but I have no idea of it's availability in the UK. If you still can't find it, I'd be willing to ship you some for cost.

I am thinking if I add glucose powder or honey, it might work.

I bought a rack of 36 culture tubes and a few petri dishes for this sort of thing, I think I can make this a little experiement, can you tell me the ingredients and how any calories Karo Syrup has per volume? It should be on the pack.

I will probably start a thread in Adv. Cult, with my method for the experiment.

Dextrose is another option, if you cant find Karo. It is super cheap, and can be easily found in any homebrew store. I've never tried Karo, so i cant comment on it, but dextrose has worked fine for me.
