dextrose anhydrous

Dextrose anhydrous and dextrose monohydrate are both purified and crystallized D-glucose compounds. The primary difference between these compounds is that the anhydrous form does not contain water and the monohydrate form contains one molecule of crystallized water. According to the book, “A Manual of Sugar Analysis, Including the Applications in General of Analytical Methods to the Sugar Industry,” both of these compounds contain approximately 99.5 percent D-glucose.
