Dextrose Monohydrate, more commonly known as glucose, is a simple sugar or monosaccharide. Chemically, glucose can be made to adopt a number of different forms, although only one, delta-glucose or “right handed glucose” is found in nature. Dextrose monohydrate is the food industry term for delta-glucose. It is a 100% natural sugar, found in fruits, vegetables and many manufactured products.
Silly Yak Foods uses dextrose monohydrate to neutralise the free fructose in our Apple Tarts and Apricot Tarts to make them safe for people with fructose malabsorption allergies, as described below.
