Powdered Dextrose for Sausage

Powdered dextrose for dry curing is sometimes also known as icing dextrose. Dextrose is a monosaccharide or simple sugar, about 70% as sweet as the regular sugar you keep in the pantry. It serves as a nutrient for the lactic acid organisms that help in fermentation, giving your sausages and other processed meats a tangy flavor. It’s most often used in processing semi-dry cured and dry-cured sausages.

Because dextrose is heavier than the meat itself, when applied it forces itself into the cells of the meat for effective processing. Buy dextrose powder online from the Sausage Maker in two convenient sizes—find our larger 5 lb. size here.

Product net weight: 1 lb. 8 oz.

Instructions: Use 2-5 Tb. powdered dextrose per 10 lbs. of meat. 1 lb. 8 oz. bulk dextrose powder will process approximately 200 lbs. of meat.

    My professional text book on charcuterie as well as the excellent Sausage Maker book by Rytek Kutas recommend Dextrose. i quote the good author: An “ideal nutrient for lactic organisms that assist fermentation..”. . .” give desired tang and flavor. . “…” useful to reduce nitrate to nitrite when meats are cure.. “Forces itself into the cells of the meat..”
