Dextrose is often used in baking products as a sweetener, and can be commonly found in items such as processed foods and corn syrup.
It is a naturally occurring sugar that comes from corn. You’ll often see dextrose as an artificial sweetener added to a variety of food items, including fructose corn syrup.
