Dextrose

Dextrose added to cured or processed meat to counteract intense saltiness of cured meat and as a medium (food) for the microbial fermentation process used to reduce the pH of dry and semi-dry sausages.

Our Dextrose can also be used in animal feed /pet food and various industrial usage; however, they are more commonly used in confectionery, beverages, dry mixes and meat treatment because it adjusts sweetness and refreshes taste.
