Dextrose monohydrate Production Methods
Dextrose, a monosaccharide sugar, occurs widely in plants and is manufactured on a large scale by the acid or enzymatic hydrolysis of starch, usually maize (corn) starch. 
Below 50°C a-D-dextrose monohydrate is the stable crystalline form produced; above 50°C the anhydrous form is obtained; and at still higher temperatures b-D-dextrose is formed, which has a melting point of 148–155°C.

Dextrose monohydrate Definition
A monosaccharide occurring widely in nature as D-glucose. 
Dextrose monohydrate occurs as glucose units in sucrose, starch, and cellulose. 
Dextrose monohydrate is important to metabolism because it participates in energy-storage and energy-release systems.

Agricultural Uses
Glucose is a monosaccharide sugar found in honey and fruits. 
Dextrose monohydrate is the primary product of plant photosynthesis, which is optically active and dextrorotatory.
Glucose and its derivatives are critically important in the energy metabolism of living organisms. 
Dextrose monohydrate is transported around the animal body through blood, and by lymph and cerebrospinal fluid, to cells where the energy is released during glycolysis.
Fructose, the stereoisomer of glucose, occurs in green plants, fruits and honey. 
Dextrose monohydrate is sweeter than sucrose.
Yeasts readily ferment glucose to produce ethyl alcohol and carbon dioxide. 
Dextrose monohydrate is also metabolized by bacteria into acetic and butyric acids, lactic acid, butyl alcohol, acetone, hydrogen, carbon dioxide and many other compounds.
Plants and animals convert complex carbohydrates (like starch and glycogen) into glucose to meet their energy needs. 
Glucose is produced commercially by hydrolysing corn starch with dilute mineral acid. 
Commercial glucose is mostly used in the manufacture of confections and in the canning industry.

Pharmaceutical Applications
Dextrose is widely used in solutions to adjust tonicity and as a sweetening agent.
Dextrose is also used as a wet granulation diluent and binder, primarily in chewable tablets.
Although dextrose is comparable as a tablet diluent to lactose, tablets produced with dextrose monohydrate require more lubrication, are less friable, and have a tendency to harden. 
The mildly reducing properties of dextrose may be used when tableting to improve the stability of active materials that are sensitive to oxidation.
Dextrose is also used therapeutically and is the preferred source of carbohydrate in parenteral nutrition regimens.

Dextrose monohydrate Safety
D-Glucose monohydrate is rapidly absorbed from the gastrointestinal tract. 
Dextrose monohydrate is metabolized to carbondioxide and water with therelease ofenergy.
Concentrated D-Glucose monohydrate solutions given by mouth may cause nausea and vomiting. 
D-Glucose monohydrate solutions of concentration greater than 5% w/v are hyperosmotic and are liable to cause local vein irritation following intravenous administration. 
Thrombophlebitis has been observed following the intravenous infusion of isoosmotic D-Glucose monohydrate solution with low pH, probably owing to the presence of degradation products formed by overheating during sterilization. 
The incidence of phlebitis may be reduced by adding sufficient sodium bicarbonate to raise the pH of the infusion above pH 7.
LD50 (mouse, IV): 9g/kg
LD50 (rat, oral): 25.8g/kg

Dextrose monohydrate storage
D-Glucose monohydrate has good stability under dry storage conditions. 
Aqueous solutions may be sterilized by autoclaving. 
However, excessive heating can cause a reduction in pH and caramelization of solutions.
Thebulkmaterialshouldbestoredinawell-closedcontainerina cool, dry place.

Incompatibilities
Dextrose solutions are incompatible with a number of drugs such as cyanocobalamin, kanamycin sulfate, novobiocin sodium, and warfarin sodium. 
Erythromycin gluceptate isunstable indextrose solutions at a pH less than 5.05. 
Decomposition of B-complex vitamins may occur if they are warmed with dextrose.
In the aldehyde form, dextrose can react with amines, amides, amino acids, peptides, and proteins. 
Brown coloration and decomposition occur with strong alkalis.
Dextrose may cause browning of tablets containing amines (Maillard reaction).

Dextrose Anhydrous and Dextrose Monohydrate
Dextrose anhydrous and dextrose monohydrate are both purified and crystallized D-glucose compounds. 
The primary difference between these compounds is that the anhydrous form does not contain water and the monohydrate form contains one molecule of crystallized water. 
According to the book, "A Manual of Sugar Analysis, Including the Applications in General of Analytical Methods to the Sugar Industry," both of these compounds contain approximately 99.5 percent D-glucose.

Dextrose
Dextrose, like fructose and glucose, is a monosaccharide known as simple sugar. 
You can also combine these sugars to produce complex sugars such as sucrose, also known as table sugar. 
One of the primary differences between these simple sugars is the way your body metabolizes each of the sugars. 
Dextrose is a form of glucose manufacturers widely use in food products and athletes use to replenish the muscle glycogen levels. 
Manufacturers derive dextrose from corn. 
According to the book "Dictionary of Food Ingredients," dextrose is approximately 20 percent less sweet than cane sugar.

Medical Uses
When your body's blood sugar levels fall below a certain range, Dextrose monohydrate can adversely affect your brain function and metabolism. 
Medical professionals sometimes use powdered dextrose to help raise your blood glucose levels quickly; they also sometimes recommend powdered glucose to individuals on restricted diets. 
Only use powdered dextrose as a dietary supplement in combination with other nutrients because powdered dextrose will not supply your body with any proteins or fats.

Considerations
In sports, athletes sometimes use powdered dextrose after workouts to boost energy levels in muscle. 
Dextrose has a high glycemic index ranking at 100. 
This means that dextrose will quickly raise your blood glucose levels. 
Products such as candy also quickly raise your blood glucose levels, but they contain sucrose, a combination of glucose and fructose. 
Fructose does not convert into glycogen in your muscles. 
Honey also raises blood sugar levels but, like candy, Dextrose monohydrate contains fructose.

There are several benefits of Dextrose Monohydrate powder.
Dextrose monohydrate promotes muscle repair post-workout as Dextrose monohydrate increases the release of insulin that facilitates the influx of sugars and amino acids into muscle cells.
Dextrose monohydrate delivers fast energy during exercise as Dextrose monohydrate is quickly absorbed by the gut and increases blood sugar levels fast.
Dextrose monohydrate is great for additional weight gain or as a meal replacement as Dextrose monohydrate is a highly absorbed complex carbohydrate that is calorie-dense.

Dextrose Monohydrate
Also Known As: Dextrose Sugar, Dextrose Glucose and Pure Dextrose
Origin: United States
Ingredients: Corn Sweetener
Taste and Aroma: Sweet, but not as sweet as sugar.
Uses: Dextrose Monohydrate is a healthier substitue for sugar, fructose and sucrose.

What is Dextrose monohydrate?
Dextrose (C6H12O6), also known as corn sugar, is a common binder used in the pharmaceutical industry. 
Binders are added to tablet formulations to add cohesiveness to powders and provide the necessary bonding to form a compact tablet mass. 
As a medical product, dextrose may be in fluids containing various amounts of sugars to be given when a patient needs additional fluids and calories for energy. 
Dextrose monohydrate may also be used as a vehicle to provide other injectable medicines. 
There are two stereo-isomers of glucose, only one of which (D-glucose) is biologically active, and is often referred to as dextrose monohydrate (dextrose). 
The mirror-image of the molecule, L-glucose, cannot be metabolized by cells in the biochemical process known as glycolysis.

In the body, digestion of starch starts in the mouth with saliva, or enzyme amylase. 
Manufacturers have taken the natural process and replicated it in their own production methods.
Dextrose Monohydrate has long been providing humans a satisfying flavor in their meals. 
If used properly Dextrose monohydrate can help people by providing energy and fluids. 
Consumers will swallow a pill with ease if they have a sweetener to look forward to.

Dextrose Monohydrate is a white crystalline powdered sugar produced from demineralized glucose syrup obtained from the complete hydrolysis of corn starch. 
This product is characterised by a delicate sweetness, high solubility and clarity in solutions, mobility and flow in the dry form. pH (5% w/v solution) is 4.0 to 6.0, Grits (retained on 1000 micron screen) < 1.0%.

What is dextrose?
Dextrose is the name of a simple sugar that is made from corn and is chemically identical to glucose, or blood sugar. 
Dextrose is often used in baking products as a sweetener, and can be commonly found in items such as processed foods and corn syrup.
Dextrose also has medical purposes. 
Dextrose monohydrate is dissolved in solutions that are given intravenously, which can be combined with other drugs, or used to increase a person’s blood sugar.
Because dextrose is a “simple” sugar, the body can quickly use Dextrose monohydrate for energy.
Simple sugars can raise blood sugar levels very quickly, and they often lack nutritional value. 
Examples of other simple sugars include glucose, fructose, and galactose. 
Products that are typically made of simple sugars include refined sugar, white pasta, and honey.

What are common dextrose preparations?
Dextrose is used to make several intravenous (IV) preparations or mixtures, which are available only at a hospital or medical facility.
Dextrose is also available as an oral gel or in oral tablet form over the counter from pharmacies.
Each dextrose concentration has its own unique uses. 
Higher concentrations are typically used as “rescue” doses when someone has a very low blood sugar reading.

How is dextrose used?
Dextrose is used in various concentrations for different purposes. 
For example, a doctor may prescribe dextrose in an IV solution when someone is dehydrated and has low blood sugar. 
Dextrose IV solutions can also be combined with many drugs, for IV administration.
Dextrose is a carbohydrate, which is one part of nutrition in a normal diet. 
Solutions containing dextrose provide calories and may be given intravenously in combination with amino acids and fats. 
This is called total parenteral nutrition (TPN) and is used to provide nutrition to those who cannot absorb or get carbohydrates, amino acids, and fats through their gut.
High-concentration dextrose injections are only given by professionals. 
These injections are administered to people whose blood sugar may be very low and who cannot swallow dextrose tablets, foods, or drinks.
If a person’s potassium levels are too high (hyperkalemia), sometimes doctors also give dextrose injections of 50 percent, followed by insulin intravenously. 
This may be done in the hospital setting.

Monitoring your blood sugar while on dextrose
Even if you don’t have certain conditions, Dextrose monohydrate is important to continually check your blood sugar if they are receiving dextrose. 
This can ensure that the dextrose does not dangerously increase blood sugar. You can check your blood sugar with home tests. 
They involve testing blood from a finger prick on a blood strip. 
For those who are physically unable to test their blood at home, urine glucose tests are available, though they’re not as reliable.
If you do find that you or someone else is having a negative reaction due to low blood sugar, the dextrose tablets should be taken immediately. 
According to the Joslin Diabetes Center, four glucose tablets are equal to 15 grams of carbs and can be taken in the case of low blood sugar levels (unless otherwise advised by your doctor). 
Chew the tablets thoroughly before swallowing. 
No water is needed.
