question about powdered dextrose

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 

I want to make some smoked breakfast sausage that calls for powdered dextrose. I cannot find any of this local and don't want to order it unless absolutely necessary. Can anyone tell me of a viable substitute for powdered dextrose for sausage making?

If you have a brewing supply shop nearby they carry dextrose/cornsugar.

A health/natural food store.

Karo syrup can be used (clear) use 1.60 fluid oz per 5 lbs of meat.

Someone jump in and correct me if I'm wrong,

 

Isnt dextrose just finely powdered white sigar and you could "blenderise it"

Dextrose (same as glucose) is essentially the same as sucrose (table sugar) calorically, but not as sweet (70% as sweet as sucrose).

 

That's important to remember if you're planning on substituting table sugar for dextrose in a recipe.

Be careful if you are assuming you can substitute other sugars for Dextrose.  I understand it is the prefered ingredient/ food source for bacteria in fermented sausages.  If the recipe calls for Dextrose I would use Dextrose.

If you use the Karo, make sure it doesn't have vanilla flavoring.

Dextrose is Corn Sugar. Totally different then Table sugar(Sucrose)
