So, what is de dextrose?

Dextrose is a simple sugar that is chemically identical to glucose. It is derived from cornstarch and is commonly used as a sweetener in processed foods and beverages. Dextrose is also frequently used in baking as it can provide a quick burst of energy to yeast, allowing for rapid fermentation. Additionally, dextrose can be found in sports drinks and energy bars as it is quickly absorbed by the body and can provide a quick source of energy for athletes. Despite its sweetness, dextrose has a relatively low glycemic index, making it a suitable option for those watching their blood sugar levels.
