So, what is dextrose monohydraté?

Dextrose monohydrate is a simple sugar derived from corn starch. It is a white, crystalline powder with a sweet taste that is approximately 70% as sweet as table sugar (sucrose). Due to its high solubility, dextrose monohydrate is commonly used as a sweetener and a source of energy in various food and beverage products, including sports drinks, energy bars, and confectionery. It is also used as a fermentation substrate in the production of beer, wine, and other alcoholic beverages, as well as in pharmaceuticals and medical products as a source of glucose for intravenous feeding.
