View Full Version : Calories in dextrose?

My dextrose says it has 15 calories for every 4 grams for a 1.25 tsp serving. I thought carbs had 4 calories per gram, so should that not be 16 calories?

maybe they've secretly replaced 1/16th of your dextrose granules with non-calorie sand.

Just saying it might not be 100% pure dextrose, thats all.
