Dextrose monohydrate is the hydrated form of the D isomer of glucose. It is also known as hydrated D-glucose. Dextrose monohydrate is usually derived from plant starches like corn starch and potato starch. Besides its applications in the food and beverage industry and the pharmaceutical industry, it is also the monomer for maltodextrin. Compared to glucose, dextrose monohydrate is metabolized faster by the body. Thus, it is a popular ingredient to be added to intravenous (IV) fluid and oral rehydration salts as it produces energy quickly.
