So, what is dekstrose?

Dextrose is a simple sugar derived from corn, wheat, or rice starches. It is also known as glucose, and its chemical formula is C6H12O6. Dextrose is commonly used as a sweetener in many food products, including baked goods, soft drinks, and candies. It is also used in medical applications, such as intravenous fluids, as a source of energy for the body. Dextrose is highly soluble in water, making it easy to incorporate into various food and beverage formulations. It has a slightly less sweet taste than regular sugar, making it a popular ingredient in low-calorie and sugar-free products.
