Buyer's guide

Glucose is available from most supermarkets’ baking sections.

Storage

Store in a dry cupboard.

Preparation

Glucose is used commercially in instant energy drinks, and for increasing the sugar content of wine, beer, confectionery, ice creams, jams and syrups. It crystallises less easily than sugar, is cheaper, and does not have a flavour of its own. It is often used as a dietary supplement because it requires no digestion and goes directly into the bloodstream.
