Dextrose is the name of a simple sugar that is made from corn and is chemically identical to glucose, or blood sugar. Dextrose is often used in baking products as a sweetener, and can be commonly found in items such as processed foods and corn syrup. It is rapidly fermented, hastens the rising process and reduces cooking time and energy costs. As a reducing sugar, dextrose also yields desirable browning in less cooking time. Perfect for sweets and ice creams.
