Overview: What is Dextrose Monohydrate?

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 within a range of applications. When being applied, commonly found to be 70-80% as sweet in comparison to table sugar.

Dextrose is manufactured from a range of starches. The process traditionally uses water to break down complex carbohydrates into smaller molecules with the use of enzymes. It is essentially similar to the mechanism the human body has to break down starchy foods.

Dextrose is a genuinely versatile sweetener. Its composition helps keep freezing temperatures low, disperses in mixes well and beyond. 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 sold as a white, near-odourless powder and has a mildly sweet taste.
