Dextrose Monohydrate is moderate in sweetness.
Dextrose Monohydrate is also known as “Glucose Powder”.
It is 65-70% as sweet as sucrose and has a solution, which is much less viscous than Liquid Glucose.
DMH is freely soluble in water at room temperature and also in boiling alcohol.
Dextrose Monohydrate / “Glucose Powder” has a greater depression of freezing point than that of cane sugar, resulting in a smoother and creamier texture of the final product like in frozen food products.
Dextrose Monohydrate / “Glucose Powder”/ DMH is used as a preservative as it doesn’t alter the natural flavor of the food, especially compared to using sugar, another useful preservative.
