Monohydrate Dextrose

Dextrose Monohydrate or D-Glucose Molecular Formula C6H12O6, H2O is a white crystalline powder, odourless and sweet to taste. Two Stereo Isomers of the Aldexho sugars are known as Glucose, only one of which is Bio-Logically active. This form is often reffered to as Dextrose Monohydrate or especially in the food industry as simply Dextrose. It usually obtained by the hydrolysis of starch and contains one molecule of water of hydration.


Functional Advantages


Known for its clean sweet flavour, it is usually rated at 75-80% of the sweetness of sucrose, however because it works synergically in some formulations, blends of sucrose and dextrose are perceived to be as sweet, in some cases sweeter than sucrose.


Flavour Enhancement

Dextrose acts to shorten the perception of sweetness and enhances flavour. Its a sweetner of choice in certain fruit flavoured desserts and beverages.



Dextrose can produce the desirable brown colour in bread, beans etc.



Dextrose being a monosaccharide, it is unsurpassed as a carbohydrate source for yeast and other organisms. It provides energy to the cell and many by-products, in addition to carbon di oxide and ethanol. When used in baking and brewing the fermenatation begins instantaneously and proceeds rapidly.



Dextrose functions as a good oral rehydrating agent and once enriched with Vitamin D and Calcium it provides easy assimilation and replenishment of essential nutrients. In the body. It's a ready source of energy to fight tiredness and refresh you instantly.



Because Dextrose cannot invert or change on exposure to mild food acid it helps to extend the shelflife of many food products.
