Glucose: UK Shortages

Glucose:  UK Shortages

At the moment there is a shortage of Glucose in the UK Market caused in part by the pandemic, last year’s poor harvest and, of course, Brexit.

The uncertainty the pandemic has brought resulted in some leading glucose manufacturers altering their commercial strategy, which in one case resulted in the closure of a major plant in England.  Last year we experienced a poor harvest that has since restricted manufacturers’ ability to produce glucose throughout Europe and together with Brexit, which caused supply chain complications we are seeing a major UK shortage of glucose.

Such is the shortage that we are seeing the real possibility that it could last up to 12 months.

As an alternative to Glucose Powder we recommend considering Sucrose.  Sucrose (granulated sugar) is a British Sugar and a useful alternative to Glucose Powder.  As a natural sugar it is very versatile with a high purity and free-flowing.
