Dextrose: The Versatile Sweetener for Baking and Beyond

Dextrose: The Versatile Sweetener for Baking and Beyond

By on Aug 8th 2023

Ingredi boasts a vast array of baking essentials, yet Dextrose shines brightest in terms of adaptability. Found in an array of baked goods, from cookies and pie crusts to pretzels, pastries, and bread, Dextrose not only imparts a subtle sweetness but also enhances shelf life and boosts color.

Beyond Just Sweetness

Considering a sweet touch without the overpowering effect of sugar? Dextrose is your answer. Take pretzels, for instance. They strike a balance between sweet and savory, and Dextrose perfectly complements this profile. This holds true for many baked items that tread the line of sweet and savory.

But Dextrose isn't just about sweetness. It's a game-changer for items like bread, serving as an excellent filler and preservative without making them too sweet. A lesser-known yet significant benefit of Dextrose is its role as a shelf-life extender for baked goods. After all, the longer baked goods retain their freshness and appeal, the better it is for attracting and retaining customers.

Dextrose vs. Traditional Sugar

While Dextrose and traditional sugar might seem similar, Dextrose has an edge with its lower calorie content. This makes it a top choice for the energy and sports drink sectors. That comes at a cost of around 20% less sweetness in dextrose than table sugar (sucrose). However, a reduced calorie count combined with a hint of sweetness is a win-win for customers. Moreover, Dextrose is easily metabolized by the body, adding to its advantages.

Derived from corn, Ingredi takes pride in presenting Dextrose, specifically Clintose A, crafted by ADM. Characterized by its white, crystalline appearance, Dextrose is also odorless, making it a versatile addition to various products. Shop today, with bulk pricing and quantity discounts available.
