Dextrose as a natural sweetener
Dextrose or grape sugar is a natural substance that occurs in various fruits, but also in the human body. The sugar in the body is called glucose, but in the food industry we use the term dextrose. You can use it as a sweetener. You can order it online at Natural Spices in a pack size of 5 or 25 kilos. After buying, remember that there is also a maximum daily use of this substance.
How do you use dextrose?
Dextrose has an average sweetening power compared to other sweeteners. For example, fructose and sucrose are stronger, but dextrose is a lot sweeter than lactose. The sweetening power increases as the concentration increases. The effect of dextrose is the same as that of ordinary sugar during cooking and baking. The only difference is that dextrose is a lot less sweet, about 30%. Would you like to replace the sugar in a recipe with dextrose? Then remember this ratio. And do you want to make a recipe less sweet? Then you can use the same amount of dextrose as the indicated amount for regular sugar.
The good properties of dextrose
Dextrose or grape sugar is a single carbohydrate also called glucose or monosaccharide. By single carbohydrates we mean sugars. Although you use dextrose in the first place as a sweetener, many people use it because of its health benefits. It is cholesterol, fat and sodium free and rich in carbohydrates. For example, 100 grams contains 92 grams carbohydrates. It requires no digestion. This is one of the reasons why it is so popular among athletes, because it is absorbed directly into the blood and immediately provides the necessary energy. So, contrary to some reports, dextrose is not a bad substance. Only if you eat to much of destroxe you can get problems.
