The global dextrose anhydrous market size is projected to reach USD 1.2 billion by 2028. The demand for dextrose anhydrous from the food industry is on the rise, with application in cereals making up the largest share of revenue generated globally, and it will continue to do so over the forecast period.

Dextrose anhydrous, also known as "anhydrous dextrose" or "d-glucose", is white crystalline sugar that has been dehydrated. The molecules in the crystals are tightly bonded to one another, which makes them resistant to moisture and heat fluctuations and enables them to be stored for longer periods of time without risking spoilage. It can have either a sweet taste similar to caramelized sugars or no taste at all. This type of sugar is used in many foods such as baked goods, soft drinks, confectioneries (such as chocolates), jams/jellies/syrups, dairy desserts (ice cream), etc., pharmaceutics industry products like tablets and capsules; as a sweetener in the brewing process for beer, and as an animal feed additive.

Dextrose is produced by catalyzing glucose through chemical or biological processes, which can also include fermentation with bacteria/yeast under specific conditions to produce industrial dextrose (not consumed). The main difference between it and other sugars like sucrose, fructose, and lactose is that it does not have any mutarotation - this means its molecules won't change their orientation when they are heated or cooled. Its crystalline structure makes it resistant against moisture fluctuations but sensitive to high temperatures up to 160 degrees Celsius where it will start caramelizing. Dextrose has no taste at all; however liquid dextroses do have tastes that range from sweetness to a slightly sour taste, and it's often used as an additive to create the desired flavor.

On the basis of type, dextrose anhydrous is segmented into crystalline, powder, liquid, and syrup.


Crystalline dextrose anhydrous is a form of glucose that has undergone heating and drying to produce a white, crystallized solid. It can be industrial or pharmaceutical grade with the latter requiring strict quality standards for food safety reasons. Crystalline Dextrose AnnHydrous typically contains 98% pure dry solids and cannot contain more than 0.05% moisture in its composition as per FDA regulations.


Dextrose Powder is also used as a food additive in the form of fast-acting carbohydrate to provide energy or nutritive sustenance (as well as bulk) to individuals who need it because they have had major illnesses such as surgery; are malnourished due to gastrointestinal illness such as Crohn's disease, or are bedridden with chronic ailments like severe burns. Powdered dextrose supplements may be taken by mouth without water on empty stomachs, mixed into drinks, added to foods/beverages either at the table or in the kitchen and blended into liquid nutritional supplements. Powdered dextrose anhydrous may act as a bulking agent to thicken soups or sauces without adding fat content if mixed with water before use.


The liquid form of dextrose anhydrous is typically used in the production of wine, beer, and other alcoholic drinks where it is added to provide a desired level of sweetness. It can also be used as an additive for food products like soy sauce or salad dressing with applications in pharmaceuticals and chemical processes such as making viscous fluids that are thicker than water-based liquids by using high viscosity. In fermentation, liquid dextrose anhydrous helps maintain yeast activity for long periods of time without adding more sugar.


The syrup form of dextrose anhydrous is a thick and viscous liquid. It can easily be converted into powder or crystalline forms, but it also has its own benefits as well. The syrup form does not have any risk of clumping together during production which means that it will often stay suspended in the solution or product much better than other forms such as crystalized sugar would. Whereas this benefit may seem small on paper, there are many products where suspending particles within the mixture is crucial to the quality of end result. Syrup-based ingredients like dextrose anhydrous are key components for food processing companies that produce bakery goods with fruit fillings or chocolate desserts because they help keep all these layers intact without them breaking apart. The syrup form tends to have a milder flavor than the crystalline or powder forms because it contains less glucose (typically 90%).

On the basis of application, dextrose anhydrous is segmented into food and beverages; pharmaceuticals; animal feed & pet food; chemical processes & fermentation.

Food and Beverages

Dextrose is used in the food and beverages industry as a sweetener. It can be used to replace sugar or corn syrup that is not deemed healthy for daily consumption, due to its high concentrations of fructose and glucose. Dextrose is also an important ingredient for beer brewing, with some variations on the type of yeast added during fermentation affecting whether dextrose will result in a dryer or sweeter product (depending on how much water it contains).

Dextrose is a sugar that can be found in many common food products such as honey, jam, and jelly. It does not contain any minerals so it's usually combined with other sugars or sweeteners to make the taste more complex. Dextrose is used in diet soda drinks because of its low-calorie content which makes it perfect for those who are conscious about their weight gain.


In pharmaceuticals, dextrose is used in the production of tablets. It also has some application as a buffer for medical gases and intravenous solutions. It's an ingredient in oral rehydration salts for diarrhea treatment. Dextrose Anhydrous is used as a stabilizer in pharmaceuticals and often for the production of medicines such as antibiotics that require dry-powder preparations. Dextrose Powder can also be found inside tampons due to its natural absorbent properties. It's often coated with polyacrylate glycol which gives dextrose an extended shelf life when applied topically on wounds and burns.

Animal Feed and Pet Food

The main application of dextrose anhydrous in animal feed is to provide energy and carbohydrate. Animal feeds are formulated according to the nutrient requirements for different types of animals, depending on their age, species, or size. For example, poultry can be given either a starter diet or grower-finisher feed; chicks require higher levels of protein than adults because they are still growing; pigs require high quantities of fiber as well as much more calcium than other livestock. The type and quantity will vary with each particular animal's physiological needs but all variations will contain carbohydrates such as sugars including dextrose anhydrous. Dextrose anhydrous is used in pet food as a nutritional supplement. It provides the animal with glucose which it can use for energy or convert to glycogen and also assists in bodybuilding and tissue repair.

Chemical Processes

In chemical processes, Dextrose anhydrous is mainly applied as a source of sugar for fermentation that produces alcohols such as butanol (and other chemicals). In fermentations, The most common use of dextrose in the fermentation process is turning it into lactic or citric acids which are then used in pharmaceuticals and foods.

On the basis of region, the global dextrose anhydrous market is segmented into North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and the Middle East & Africa.

Europe emerged as a major market for all types of dextrose anhydrous in 2016 due to its steady economic growth coupled with high demand from the pharmaceuticals sector. The region accounted for more than 24% share of total revenue generated by the global dextrose anhydrous industry.
