So, what is dextrose maïs?

Dextrose maïs is a type of sweetener that is derived from corn starch. It is a simple sugar that is chemically identical to glucose and is often used as a substitute for regular sugar in food and beverage manufacturing. Dextrose maïs is a highly versatile ingredient, as it has a low sweetness level and can be easily incorporated into a wide range of products. It is commonly used as a bulking agent, a humectant, and a fermentation substrate. Because of its molecular structure, dextrose maïs is absorbed quickly by the body, making it a popular ingredient in sports drinks and other high-energy products.
