Dextrose, which is similar to glucose, is an example of a simple sugar. It can be extracted naturally from fruits or can be developed industrially via hydrolysis of starch. Dextrose is primarily prepared by plants and most algaes during photosynthesis from water and carbon dioxide. It is extensively used as a sweetener. It also has medical purposes as it is dissolved in solutions that are given intravenously, which can further be mixed with other drugs, or used to improve a person’s blood sugar. This simple sugar can be quickly absorbed by body for energy.
