Table of contents
Dextrose Powder by RawSeries is a powered food of Dextrose monohydrate.
Dextrose is glucose with a linear rather than a cyclic hydrocarbon chain; it provides a high amount of energy (4kcal/g) and is rapidly absorbed in the gut, with a Glycaemic Index of 100.
Dextrose powder is a food obtained from the degradation of starch, and is 100% vegan.
- Carbohydrates contribute to the recovery of normal muscle function (contraction) after high intensity or long duration physical exercise leading to muscle fatigue and depletion of stored glycogen in skeletal muscles.1
Dextrose is a monosaccharide, a simple carbohydrate.
'The Glycaemic Index, which is a nutritional property of carbohydrate-rich foods, is defined as the increase in the area under the blood glucose response curve after consuming a 50g serving of glycaemic carbohydrate from a food test expressed as the percentage response to the same amount of carbohydrate from a standard reference taken by the same subject' (FAO/WHO, 1998 cited in EFSA 2010).
The reference for the glycaemic index is always glucose (dextrose), with a value of 100, a high glycaemic index showing that its absorption is rapid.
HSN's product is a food, 100% Dextrose monohydrate, and contains no other ingredients (or additives) in its composition.
One of the virtues of 100% pure dextrose is that its sweetening value is half that of table sugar.
The presentation of the food is dextrose monohydrate (C6H12O6 x H2O).
The addition of a water molecule to dextrose reduces its moisture uptake than in anhydrous form, making it easier to preserve and increasing the shelf life of the food.
Similarly, dextrose monohydrate improves its solubility profile in polar media (such as water or juices), so it dissolves instantly.
Forget about finding sediment in your intra-workout bottle!
Dextrose is obtained from the degradation of starch present in maize.
Starch is a huge polymer made up of thousands of glucose units, so its hydrolysis releases dextrose which can then be processed into food.
It is vegetable, suitable for vegan and vegetarian diets.
Dextrose has an intensely sweet taste.

1 The beneficial effect is obtained by consuming carbohydrates from all sources at a total intake of 4 g per kg body weight, in doses taken within four hours (or at most six hours) after the end of high intensity or long duration physical exercise leading to muscle fatigue and depletion of stored glycogen in skeletal muscles.
