Organic tapioca dextrose (glucose) is a sweet, white-to-off-white fine powder used as a functional sweetener, dispersant, humectant, bulking agent, fermentation agent and carrier for flavors and colors.
Organic dextrose is widely used across the food, beverage, nutritional, and personal care industries. Dextrose functions as a moisturizing and browning agent in baked goods, provides an immediate energy source in sports nutrition products, and is a common flavor carrier in dry seasoning blends and beverage mixes. It is useful for freeze point depression in frozen desserts and as a fermentation agent in alcoholic beverages.
