Dextrose In Salt?
0

4 posts in this topic

Hey everyone,

I just noticed on my Publix Iodized salt one of the ingredients is dextrose. Does anyone know if this is related to gluten? If not where does it come from?

Dextrose is a simple sugar, also known as sucrose. Comes (I believe exclusivelyl?) from corn. No gluten.

Dextrose- not quite the same thing as sucrose sugar, because it is made from breaking down starch. Usually from corn in North America, but can come from any form of grain starch. Dextrose= form of glucose= monosaccharide = simple sugar. Sucrose= disaccharide, or a 2 part sugar.

This dextrose popping up in salt made me switch to natural types of sea salts without the additives, since my multivitamin has iodine, and I was seeing this "dextrose" as an ingredient in every single iodized salt on the shelves. I try not to eat any manufactured good with hidden grain products, especially in an everyday - use product. Also, I don't do hidden sugars! The only way these food manufacturers will stop putting garbage into our foods is if we hit them back with our pocketbooks. Oh, and some of the salt makers in the USA were paying big bucks to stop GMO labeling in CA, when I checked the donations to who was against Proposition 37, which clinched it for me.

Dextrose is a highly refined sugar and will be free of any detectable gluten regardless of the source. Nevertheless, in the US and Canada, if the source is wheat that fact will have to be disclosed on the label using the word "wheat."
