What is Dextrose?

Dextrose is a naturally occurring sugar found in all plants and animals. It is also known as "grape sugar" or "blood sugar". With such a comprehensive source, you can find Dextrose in multiple applications. When being applied, commonly found to be 70-80% as sweet compared to table sugar.

The manufacture of Dextrose occurs from a range of starches. The process traditionally uses hydrolysis. This process means breaking down complex carbohydrates into smaller molecules with enzymes and water. It is essentially similar to how the human body breaks down starchy foods.

Dextrose is a genuinely versatile sweetener. Its composition helps keep freezing temperatures low and disperses in mixes, to name two benefits. As many such foods ranging from ice cream and bread to biscuits, flavour blends and beyond - you can see just how vital Dextrose can be. Beyond these, you can also find Dextrose within alcoholic beverages, sugar replacements in sports nutrition and medicines for its quick-release benefits.

With such a flexible product, it is no surprise that businesses take advantage of it within their production. Dextrose is a white, near-odourless powder with a mildly sweet taste.
