dextrose monohydrate

Dextrose Monohydrate Powder


Dextrose Monohydrate Powder (DMH) is commercially produced by the enzymatic hydrolysis of the starch. DMH is a white free flowing crystalline powder. DMH find applications mainly in the manufacture of instant energy drinks, serves as major raw material for manufacturing of Dextrose Anhydrous and Pharmaceuticals and Fermentation stage of manufacturing of anti-biotic. Its uses are many and varied.


A) Food Applications:

  • Food Grade: DMH is purified and crystallized D-Glucose. It contains one molecule of water of crystallization. It exists in white, odourless, crystalline granules having a bland and sweet taste.
  • Bakery Products:DMH has several functional purposes in yeast-raised foods, such as Bread and Buns. The primary purpose is to supply fermentable carbohydrate, on which the yeast may grow and provide CO2 for 'raising' the product. Its presence also assists in browning of the crust to give a final product that is pleasing in appearance & aroma.
  • Biscuits:DMH can partially replace sucrose in fondants and cream fillings where fine crystals are required for a smooth texture.
  • Alcoholic Beverages:DMH has high fermenting ability and can be added to low calorie beer for complete fermentation of alcohol. No carbohydrate residue remains to increase the calories in the beverages.
  • Canned Products: DMH is used in canned vegetables and fruits in some instances for controlling sweetness and preserving properties.
  • Confectionaries: DMH is used extensively for sweetening and coating, chewing gum and bubble gum. DMH improves the colour and gloss of the gum coatings and its high heat of solution give a cool texture in all gum and candy coating applications.
  • Frozen Desserts:DMH can help control ice crystals and body of frozen dairy products.
  • Other Applications:Jams, Jellies, Preservatives, Peanut Butter, Seasoning, Pickle, Vinegar Fermentation, etc.
  • B) Industrial Applications:

  • Adhesives:DMH provides flow control and helps prevent wrapping of the pieces upon drying.
  • Resin Formulation:DMH can serve as plasticizer in various resin formulations.
  • Gluconic Acid:DMH can serve as feedstock for chemical or microbiological oxidation to gluconic acid.
  • C) Pharmaceutical Industry:

    It is used in the manufacture of antibiotics like penicillin, ampicillin and also used in the manufacture of sorbitol, calcium gluconate etc.
