Stuffers Dextrose 454g
A corn sweetener that is commercially made from starch by the action of heat acids or enzymes resulting in the complete hydrolysis of the cornstarch. The addition of dextrose is primarily for flavour and also counteracts the harsh hardening effects of salt by preventing some of the moisture loss. Dextrose also interacts with the meat proteins when cooked to create a browning reaction. Dextrose is one half as sweet as sucrose, so more can be added without affecting the flavour and it also increases the water holding capacity of the products.
