Are there any substitutions for Dextrose and Starter culture? What is Starter culture anyway?

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

Powdered butermilk you can buy at your local wally world or grocery

Starter cultures ferment sausage, develop color and flavor in a safe manner

Good to know about buttermilk powder in place of starter culture. I saw the stuff at the Amish market and was trying to figure out a use for it. Now I know!
