WHAT IS DEXTROSE?
BULK POWDERS™ Dextrose is a monosaccharide, or simple sugar, that is derived entirely from corn starch. Dextrose replenishes muscle glycogen (fuel) levels rapidly and, as such, is a great choice after exercise.
Dextrose, also known as Glucose, is found in the body and is the result of breaking down carbohydrates (dextrose is also a carbohydrate). By consuming Dextrose, the process of breaking down starchy carbohydrate is skipped resulting in a rapid supply of energy.
Taste wise, Dextrose is about 20% less sweet than regular cane sugar. Dextrose is commonly added to pre, intra and post-workout drinks. Dextrose is commonly mixed with Protein, Creatine and BCAA to give just a few examples.
BULK POWDERS™ Dextrose is of the highest quality, providing 100% Dextrose. A quick glance at the Certificate of Analysis (COA) on this product page (to the side of the product image) reaffirms this.

Due to its ability to create a rapid insulin spike, Dextrose is very effective when combined with Creatine, Amino Acids (in particular Glutamine) and Whey Protein. It is now believed that a combination of Dextrose and Maltodextrin also makes the ideal post-exercise carbohydrate solution.
