A sirupy, or white crystalline, variety of sugar, C6H12O6 (so called from turning the plane of polarization to the right), occurring in many ripe fruits, and also called glucose. Dextrose and levulose are obtained by the inversion of cane sugar or sucrose, and hence the mixture is called called invert sugar. Dextrose is chiefly obtained by the action of heat and acids on starch, and hence called also starch sugar. It is also formed from starchy food by the action of the amylolytic ferments of saliva and pancreatic juice.
A simple sugar. Glucose.
the IV sugar that is converted to glucose and is the chief source of energy for the body's living cells. As the main sugar that the body manufactures, glucose is generated from all three elements of food; protein, fat and carbohydrates, but in largest part from carbohydrates. . It is carried to each cell through the bloodstream.
Also known as D-Glucose, dextrose is a solution of glucose which is used for fluid replacement and the supplement the body's level of blood sugar. It is often introduced through an intravenous drip.
Commonly known as corn sugar and grape sugar. Naturally occurring form of glucose.
A sugar found in plant and animal tissue and derived synthetically from starch.
A simple sugar of the monosaccharose group; a crystalline solid that can be made by the action of acids on starches.
an isomer of glucose that is found in honey and sweet fruits
Also known as glucose (grape sugar), it is a simple sugar (or monosaccharide) and is one of the two main sugars found in honey; forms most of the solid phase in granulated honey.
Glucose A simple sugar that is found in the blood.
Product of the saccharification of starch, consisting of purified, crystallised glucose (with or without water of crystallisation).
A monosaccharide, which is a major part of corn syrup and honey.
another name for glucose.
The commercial name for glucose.
Glucose or simple sugar
D-glucose obtained by the complete hydrolysis of starch, followed by purification and crystallisation. Dextrose can be obtained as the anhydrous or monohydrate form. The monohydrate contains one molecule of water per molecule of D-glucose.
A type of glucose
one of the two principal sugars found in honey; forms crystals during granulation. Also known as glucose.
Equivalent to Glucose, but with a mirror-image molecular structure.
Glucose, the simple form of sugar.
Refined corn sugar
A six-carbon monosaccharide which is the major sugar in the blood and is an important intermediate molecule in metabolic processes. It is often given intravenously to replenish fluids and provide nutrients. (more info - dextrose) find all NHC pages containing: dextrose
