    Dextrose Serving size

    OK, got a question. If the Serving size is 1.25 tsp and it is 4 g, I should put in 31.25 tsp to get 100 g, correct? I know it's simple math, but just wanted to make sure I get the ratio right. Thanks.

    That seems like a lot.

    Man, that's a lot to be adding on top of two scoops of protein.

    Everyone wasn't kidding when they said it tastes like candy.

    read the key word...

    "Dextrose

    Dextrose is a form of glucose produced from cornstarch. It is commonly used in food production.
    "

    "White sugar

    White sugar is known by many names, including sucrose, table sugar, cane sugar, beet sugar, grape sugar, refined sugar, or granulated sugar. It is derived from the juice of sugar cane and sugar beets. Once extracted, the sugar cane or sugar beet juice is processed extensively to produce a white, granulated substance. “Invert sugar,” a variation on sucrose, is used commercially because it is sweeter than equal amounts of sucrose.

    there is a difference and difference how the body absorbs it too. Tell me when you put a 1/4 cup of sugar in a glass of iced tea and stir all the crystals sit at the bottom forever. try the same with dextrose. which do you think is absorbed by the body more rapidly??
