dextrose???

Recommended Posts

I've read about dextrose as an additive to salt. I know it's OK. But I have not found any other info on dextrose as an additive to other foods. Is dextrose OK in meats etc.?

No sorry, dextrose is only given a pass for table salt as it is part of a chemical reaction needed to keep the iodine functional.  There is not enough dextrose in salt to impact your program.  Dextrose in meats, brines, marinades etc would not be compliant; salt is the ONLY exception to the no sugar rule.
