So, what is wheat dextrose?

Wheat dextrose is a natural sweetener that is derived from wheat starch through a process of enzymatic hydrolysis. This ingredient is made up of simple glucose molecules and has a sweet taste that is approximately 70% as sweet as regular sugar. Wheat dextrose is often used as a substitute for sugar in various food and beverage products because it provides the same level of sweetness without the added calories. Additionally, it is a gluten-free ingredient that can be used in a wide range of applications, including baked goods, energy drinks, and sports nutrition products. Its versatility and natural origin make it a popular choice for manufacturers looking to create healthier and more sustainable products.
