Sale of dry and aqueous dextrose
Dextrose exists in both dry and aqueous forms. Glucose is a sugary substance obtained from corn, which is produced industrially by heat and acid or enzymes on starch and its complete hydrolysis. Commercially, glucose is called corn syrup (a mixture of glucose, dextrin and other sugars) and pure glucose is called dextrose.
There are two types of dextrose:
Aqueous dextrose, which contains 9% crystallized water, is the most widely used.
Anhydrous dextrose containing 0.5% water of crystallization.
