"It's very difficult to make simple syrups with sugar that are as thick at glucose syrups... glucose inherently doesn't form crystals as much as sucrose does."
"The enzymes and bacteria in the gut help to get the fish sauce going, but every part has been used throughout history- all making a different product."
