So, what is dekstroosia?

Dekstroosia, also known as dextrose, is a simple sugar derived from corn or wheat starch. It is commonly used in the food industry as a sweetener, a thickener, and a bulking agent. With its mild sweetness and high solubility, it is often added to baked goods, soft drinks, candies, and other processed foods. Dekstroosia is also used as a source of energy in sports drinks and supplements. Despite being a form of glucose, dekstroosia has a lower glycemic index than table sugar, making it a popular choice for people with diabetes or those looking to manage their blood sugar levels.
