A sugar, also referred to as "dextrose." that is found naturally in grains, fruits and vegetables such as corn, grapes, sugar beets, sugar cane, and honey. Through a process known as photosynthesis, the elements of water, carbon dioxide and energy from the sun are all absorbed by plants to be turned into Fructose and Glucose. It is the combination of these simple sugars, Fructose and Glucose, that occurs to create the substance Sucrose, or white sugar as it is more commonly known. Man-made Glucose is produced through a refining process of cornstarch. Containing approximately half of the sweetening power of regular sugar, Glucose is used as a sweetener in commercial candies, frostings, soft drinks, as an industrial ingredient in the chemical industry, and as a energy booster when used for blood transfusions.
