Why is dextrose added to some of your products?
Dextrose is used in the manufacturing of a range of foods. In cured meat products, it helps the fermentation process by supplying an energy source for the lactic acid cultures to act upon. Whether milk powder is added to a product depends on the type of process, as well as the flavour and texture required in the finished product. Dextrose is also used in baked goods to promote browning.
