Not sure if I’m remembering this correctly, but I think glucose has less water than corn syrup.  If you use the fondant recipe in the Cake Bible, I think there’s a note about using corn syrup instead of glucose.

I use the fondant recipe from TCB and I always use corn syrup instead of glucose (just b/c I always have it on hand). Julie is right, there is a note about substituting - if you use corn syrup, reduce the water to 3T instead of 1/4 cup. TCB fondant recipe is extremely good and so easy to work with.
