Dextrose monohydrate is a common term yet very few people understand what this means. It is sugar that is stable, in white crystalline form and odorless. It can be sugar that occurs widely in nature including in honey in addition to many fruits. Because it is a constituent of glycogen, starch and cellulose, it can also be extracted from animals and plants. The same as common sugar, it contains carbon, hydrogen and oxygen. However, apart from these factors, it differs from regular sugar especially because of the difference in molecular weights. This sugar may also be referenced a D-glucose.
