The science bit:

Sugar is produced by plants as a food during the process of photosynthesis.

Syrup is a byproduct of the process that refines and purifies the grains of sugar that we might put in our tea.

Syrup is a form of non-Newtonian solid, meaning that it is neither a solid nor a liquid.

These sticky fluids are often described as being viscous, which means they are thick and not very runny.

If we want to increase the syrup's viscosity and make it sticker, we can add the cornflour, and use the water to make it runnier.
