Yes, you can use any fermentable sugar to prime. But I would not know how much to add - probably similar amount as corn syrup - but all depends on the water content. Corn sugar is  a well known effective primer, so just curious why you would not want to use it?
In bottles: none
In keg: Asaph IPA
In process: Farmhouse Saison, Supermarine Kentish Ale
