Dextrose is a simple carbohydrate sweetener that is nearly as sweet as sugar. It can be used as a natural sweetener to improve the flavor of any other powdered supplement. Use it in baking to reduce the sweetness of desserts. Dextrose powder is a convenient source of glucose that is the most abundant source of energy for your body. The benefits possible adding dextrose monohydrate to your recovery drinks has been documented to be positive due to the insulin response.

For improved muscle building, it’s possible that dextrose can be a creatine transport mechanism that is a key for bodybuilders in Canada. Our dextrose powder is a pure and economical supplement addition for helping you take your workouts and muscle gains to a new, higher level.


Who should supplement with Dextrose powder?

Certainly anyone looking to build more muscle and see better results from their workouts can benefit from adding Dextrose to their supplement cabinet. You may improve your recovery time when you mix Dextrose with whey protein Canada. Muscles are depleted of glycogen during exercise so adding some carbohydrates to protein powder can enhance overall recovery. The simple sugar aspect of Dextrose monohydrate or glucose as it’s also called, typically causes an insulin spike shortly after being consumed. Research suggests this is a key to helping transport protein, creatine and other key nutrients to tired muscles. You don’t need to be a competitive bodybuilder or other hard training athlete to benefit from Dextrose though. Every other type of consumer in Canada can benefit using it as a sugar substitute. The lactose free and gluten free aspect makes Dextrose appealing to anyone. Made entirely from corn it’s a 100% all natural sweetener that is great as a sugar substitute for artificial sweeteners especially. It’s a very fine powder so it mixes easily in water to make any type of lightly sweetened sports drink that is good for the whole family.


Being a monosaccharide, dextrose is particularly effective at aiding in protein transfer to your muscles. For bodybuilding and other muscle intensive sports, this can help repair broken down muscle tissue faster leading to better and quicker results from your hard training. A more complex carbohydrate like Maltodextrin can be great for your bulking phase when you are trying to gain maximum weight. It’s possible that even better results can be seen combining Dextrose and Maltodextrin with protein powders, creatine monohydrate, glutamine or other muscle building nutrients. ProteinCo Canada suggests you experiment until you find the right mixes to meet your specific training needs. We purposely offer a large number of powdered supplements online at Proteinco.ca so you can personalize all of your nutrition to work better for you specifically.


Fitness - Benefits for any training or activity level

Dextrose can be used mixed alone with water or added to any combination of other powdered supplements. Mixed with Creatine Monohydrate, Glutamine or our Pre Workout Drink, you can tailor your pre workout beverage. During training, you can drink it alone or personalize it as well to sip on for added energy while you workout. Dextrose is possibly most valuable added to any recovery drink like our Amino Recovery or your own blend of protein and nutrients. By promoting an insulin spike, studies have shown the transport of protein, creatine and other vital nutrients for muscle repair, is substantially greater. From professional athletes to those simply leading an active lifestyle, Dextrose powder should be in your supplement arsenal.

Energy - Quick energy when you need it FAST!

Simple sugars, or monosaccharides as they are technically called, get into your system quickly and raise blood sugar and energy levels. The boost in energy is often short lived however so it requires frequent ingestion to keep your blood sugar elevated. You can sip on a mixture of Dextrose to accomplish this or mix with a more complex carbohydrate like Maltodextrin for the best of both worlds. Regardless, when you are looking to boost energy levels either pre workout or during training, Dextrose monohydrate is an excellent choice.

Active Lifestyle - A natural sweetener that is good for the whole family

Dextrose a.k.a. glucose, is the most abundant source of energy in the body. Using it as a supplement can help boost your energy and that of the whole family. Often being active consists of running the kids around or chasing them around and at some point, everyone needs some calories and an energy booster. Mixing your own family “sports drink” that contains Dextrose and any other nutrients you feel are important to you and your family, can help everyone be more active and energetic in a natural way.

If you have allergies to nuts, shellfish or other such serious food allergies, check the label carefully to make sure you see your particular allergen listed as being absent. We use a table to show you what is or isn’t in each product so you can decide whether it suits you regarding allergies, afflictions, lifestyle choice, etc.

We list the most common substances that pose allergy risks or that may contain an ingredient people like Vegetarians/Vegans choose not to consume. Near the supplement facts for each product, you will see the following table with Y or N showing that either Yes, this product contains this or No it doesn’t:

Q – Where does Dextrose powder come from?

A – It’s a corn derivative that is a very fine powder. The sweetness is a bit less than table sugar so it’s ideal for anyone looking for lightly sweetened supplements. USA or Canada grown so you get the best possible quality every time.

Q – Does Dextrose mix easily in water?

A – As the powder is very fine it mixes easily and quickly in water yes. In addition, it will mix well with any other powdered supplement we sell either mixed in water or your beverage of choice. ProteinCo recommends you experiment with various mixtures to meet your goals more specifically.


Q – How can Dextrose monohydrate be gluten free?

A – Corn is gluten free in terms of what the typical gluten intolerance comes from. Sources like wheat, barley and rye are the high gluten grains that cause most of the issues in people. During processing of corn however, we must be vigilant to avoid cross contamination that could add gluten to our Dextrose powder. Once again, buying supplements from a trusted source like ProteinCo is the only way you can be certain you are getting the quality that is promised.

Q – Can I mix Dextrose with other supplements you sell?

A – Absolutely! We encourage that actually as we make almost all of our nutritional supplements adaptable. It isn’t possible to formulate single products that work the same for everyone we feel. Therefore, mix Dextrose with any supplement or nutrient combination that meets your specific needs and taste desires.

Suggested Use

Serving Size

30 grams = 1 large scoop


Add one or more servings to your favorite beverage or supplement powder and drink as needed.


Add to our Whey Protein Isolate, Whey Protein Blend, Creatine Monohydrate, Maltodextrin or Amino Recovery for added sweetness and benefit


Pre Workout

For a quick energy boost pre workout, mix alone or with other supplements and drink just prior to starting your training. Mixed with Maltodextrin, it can be consumed several hours prior to the start of your workout. Adding Creatine Monohydrate can help you build muscle faster during training as well.

During Training

Dextrose powder is excellent for mixing alone or with other powders for a during training energy drink. Sipping on a small amount of calories in water while you are working out can help you stay hydrated and energized from start to finish. Working out harder and for more minutes of each session should provide superior results from training efforts.

Post Workout

For bodybuilding and other muscle intensive activities, adding Dextrose monohydrate to your recovery drink can skyrocket your performance gains. By “spiking” your insulin, research has shown more protein and nutrients get transported to hungry and fatigue muscles. This can be a key to building more muscle mass from each hard training session. As well, carbohydrates added to Canada protein powders can restore muscle glycogen better when consumed immediately post workout. This pays huge dividends when you want to workout hard again the next day or soon after your last session. If you aren’t already doing so, mix and drink a recovery drink that contains Dextrose after all your workouts and we are convinced you will see improved results almost immediately.
