Glucose Syrup Dehydrated
Glucose syrup is the most viable substitute for sugar. It is an aqueous solution of several compounds: principally glucose, dextrose and maltose. A purified, concentrated solution of nutritive monosaccharides and higher saccharides, it is obtained by hydrolysing starch with specific enzymes under controlled conditions. Important functional properties of glucose syrup include high fermentability, viscosity, hygroscopicity, sweetness, colligative properties and facilitates browning reaction; it adds body and mouthfeel in the preparation of various products. Dehydration (hypohydration) is defined as excessive loss of body water.[1] It is literally the removal of water (Ancient Greek: ?d??, hýdor) from an object. In physiological terms, it entails a relative deficiency of water molecules in relation to other dissolved solutes. There are three main types of dehydration; hypotonic (loss of strictly water), hypertonic (primarily a loss of electrolytes, sodium in particular), and isotonic (equal loss of water and electrolytes).[
