What is cultured dextrose?
This is a tough one, as a biologist I can say that the name "cultured dextrose" doesn't really specify what is within. Alcohol could be cultured dextrose, as could penicillin. This is one of those industry vernacular phrases, virtually designed to mask the actual nature of the ingredients. Not to say it is harmful, but without industrial access to msds and other proprietary info about cultured dextrose products like Microguard. I have faced this in my career where I have basically had to threaten the company with discontinuing use of their product if they didn't disclose more. I have read a couple of descriptions that say "various peptides and metabolites"- that could be anything under the sun grown via bacteria or yeast (or even Chinese hamster ovary cells), and I would worry about people that have food allergies.
Possibly a far better altenrative to the nasty BHA and BHT like chemicals we usually get, but I wish they would spill the beans on my hummus.

Sausages . Dextrose is added to the ingredients of some sausages. I'm not sure if as a seasonning or a preservative or maybe both. Chris
Dextrose is not sugar. Dextrose is a type of sweetener made from plant starch. Usually corn starch in the USA. It can be made from rice or other plant starch. Sugar is a more common nick name for cane or sugar beet products. Dextrose is altered chemically with enzymes and goes almost directly into t…he blood stream with a Glycemic Index of 100. Dextrose is not "blood sugar" either. Blood glucose level known as "blood sugar". Cane sugar (grass like plant) and sugar beets (a root) are plants that undergo a "bleaching" process that separates the molasses out of the sugar to create two products: white sugar and molasses. A fairly natural process which is done by crystallization. Cane sugar molasses is used for human consumption where beet sugar molasses is unfit for human consumption and is add to cattle feed. There is evidence that even though the two sugar crystals are chemically identical, cane and beet sugar products seem to have different results in baked goods. Beet sugar turns the baked product darker (browns more) than with cane sugar. Important to know if making Angel Food Cake and other delicate recipes. Different sweetening products have various effects the body. They may be experienced in similar ways for most people, the obviously, it effects the sweetness of a food or product, however there is conflicting ideas about the effects the body may or may not encounter with, especially, the corn product/corn starch enzyme altered sweeteners such as High Fructose Corn Syrup (HFCS), Dextrose, Maltodexrose/Maltodexrine. There is also a product called inverted sugar which is also chemically altered sugar molecule; http://wiki.answers.com/wiki/Glucose and http://wiki.answers.com/wiki/Fructose is obtained by splitting http://wiki.answers.com/wiki/Sucrose . Corn sweeteners are more cost effective and are also banned in some European countries as a food additive. KD. (MORE)

Dextrose is much sweeter than Sucrose, and is a great subsitute for sucrose when you are looking to reduce the sugar content or reduce the volume that sugar is taking up in a baked good. I've read estimates that dextrose 10-16 times sweeter than regular sugar, but I don't have exact numbers. The bes…t thing to do is taste your batter while you're adding the dextrose. I have made cookies, muffins and brownies with dextrose and they turned out well. Given my experience, I think it would work with cake as well. If the taste it too noticably different than just using sucrose, try adding some sucrose or fructose in addition to the dextrose. Hope this helps. Dextrose is only 70-80% as sweet as sugar. The preceding answer is incorrect. I don't think you can easily substitute. Will definitely require some experimentation. (MORE)

Dextrose ( a form of glucose) is a sugar made from naturally occurring starch in plants such as maize, rice, wheat, potato, cassava, arrowroot, and sago..

Dextrose is dextrose -- a form of glucose. Glucose is a monosacharide, used for energy within the body. In fact, Dextrose IV may often actually be glucose.

Dextrose is a form of sugar, and in the US is commonly made from corn. It can also be made from rice, and from wheat. It is best to call the manufacturer to be certain what their dextrose is made from.
Dextrose does not contain any sugar. It is a sweetener that is madefrom the starch of plants such as rice.
There are several places where you can get dextrose. This isusually available at the local stores in varied packs.

In normal amounts, dextrose is not toxic. Cells in the body requirethis nutrient. However, too much dextrose can be toxic.
Dextrose is a sugar by-product, hence contains no gluten, unless the packet lists any added ingredients which may have gluten in.
Dextrose, also known as glucose (technically D-glucose), is a simple sugar found naturally in all living organisms and most food ingredients. Dextrose is sometimes referred to as "grape sugar" or "corn sugar." All are considered "dextrose." Typically, dextrose is derived from all natural, star…chy food ingredients like rice, wheat, or potatoes. DEXTROSE OR GLUCOSE, has a higher glycemic value than table sugar and on most glycemic indexes, glucose is used to compare the value of other "foods" as glucose (which is actual blood sugar) has a faster release into your system than most any other sugar or food item which will result in a very sharp rise in your insulin levels. Diabetics should not use this sweetener. So in other words you just simply want to be careful when eating foods that have dextrose as an ingredient. Dont eat too much of it. And if you have diabetes stay away from it. It is my personal opinion that if you ingest this sugar make sure that its only from all natural foods. Aka non processed foods. As far as it being bad. I do not believe it is bad in small amounts. Just don't overdo it. Anything good can become bad if you get too much of it. (MORE)
Dextrose is made from corn starch. The starch is digested using enzymes like alpha-amylase and glucoamylase. When it is digested into individual sugar molecules, it is called dextrose.
Starch has a dextrose equivalent of zero because that is the definition of DE 0. a scale was needed for measuring the hydrolysis of starch starting at pure starch to complete 100% dextrose. It was decided to assign zero to pure starch and 100 to 100% dextrose.

Any Beer made according to the German Beer Purity laws (Rheinheitsgebot) is not permitted to contain any ingredient other than Malt, Hops, Yeast, and Water.

Dextrose is the most common form of glucose.As such, it is found in almost all living things, both animal and vegetable. It is also known as grape sugar and blood sugar. It is important in both photosynthesis (in plants) and cell respiration (in animals). undefined. undefined.
Dextrose is a form of glucose. Dextrose is extremely abundant in nature, and can be found in numerous plant and animal tissues, often along with other sugars such as fructose.
Dextrose is a solid so it doesn't really have a pH until it is in solution. Once it is in solution, it would depend on what the solvent was and the concentration of the dextrose. So it could range greatly, but most are kept around 6.4.

Sugar covers a wide range of molecules that include dextrose. However, you are most likely referring to glucose which is the most common simple sugar or monosaccharide. Glucose and dextrose are isomers, meaning they have the same molecular formula (C6H12O6), but a different structure.

No, ALL dextrose is not gluten free. I've noticed some dextrose is from corn whilst others use wheat. The same goes for starch.
No. Dextrose is a simple sugar. It does not contain anything but its component elements carbon, hydrogen, and oxygen. Milk, however, contains some dextrose.
Technically yes, although this would be difficult, require a great deal of inputs and would not result in a product you would call "edible sugar". Dextrose is a specific sugar molecule; in physiologic systems dextrose can be formed from fatty acid chains or proteins via complex enzyme pathways. Thos…e pathways are typically found in plant cells, as plants use carbohydrates (like dextrose) as an energy storage molecule. Animal cells can break down dextrose and convert it to glucose, but typically cannot form dextrose from other molecules. If you really wanted to work at it, you could take a pork carcass and turn a fair portion of it into dextrose, although (as stated above) it would be an extremely energy and enzyme-intensive process.

A plant must be cut into small pieces before culturing, such as potato dextrose agar, because it is easier to handle in a cheese cloth. You must let the potato boil in distilled water.

No. Dextrose is a compound, not a mixture. It has nothing with or homogenecity.
