List of syrups

This is a list of notable syrups. In cooking, a syrup is a condiment that is a thick, viscous liquid consisting primarily of a solution of sugar in water, containing a large amount of dissolved sugars but showing little tendency to deposit crystals. Its consistency is similar to that of molasses. The viscosity arises from the hydrogen bonds between the dissolved sugar, which has many hydroxyl (OH) groups, and the water.
