Dextrose is a simple sugar substitute made from corn or wheat and is chemically identical to glucose, or blood sugar.
You can use dextrose in all the same ways as regular sugar, but since it’s about 70% as sweet as regular sugar, you may want to use a little more to achieve the desired sweetness.
Dextrose is low in net carbohydrates and friendly to the ketogenic diet. It’s frequently mixed with other natural sweeteners such as :
- Monk fruit
Dextrose also has various medical uses. It is added to solutions that are given intravenously, which can be mixed with other drugs or used to raise a person’s blood sugar levels.
