DEXTROSE MONO HYDRATE

Dextrose Monohydrate (D-glucose) is a sugar that's a stable, odorless, white crystalline powder or colorless crystal. In its pure form, it has a dextrose equivalency (DE) of 100, which indicates that it's 100% pure Dextrose, not a mixture with other substances as well. Dextrose equivalency is a good value to know when purchasing Dextrose supplies.

Different Dextrose Uses

The level of hydration has a lot to do with how a substance is used and is determined by how dextrose is made

Dextrose Monohydrate uses in the food industry are vast. The coordinated water lends the desired physical properties for food manufacturing. 

These can include:

  • boiling and freezing/melting points
  • preservation
  • humectancy
  • sweetness
  • browning reaction effects
  • gelation
  • viscosity
