If a recipe calls for 1/3 cup of turbinado sugar, how much dextrose needs to be used?

well, volume wise, it'd be teh same.
but in terms of sweetness, it'll be a lot sweet with dextrose.

what exactly are you making?

Today is my carb load day on UD2.0. So Im looking to minimize sucrose,fructose and maximize glucose, so I am making this recipe:

6 cups milk
cup rice
cup raisins
teaspoon fresh cardamom powder
bay leaf
cup turbinado sugar

In large saucepan combine milk, rice, and bay leaf. Cook on high heat for 15 minutes, stirring very frequently. Bring to a rolling boil and then lower heat. Simmer for 40 more minutes until it thickens. Remove bay leaf and add sugar, raisins, and cardamom. Refrigerate until cold.

I am cutting everything in the recipe by 2/3 for serving size purpose. My question is do i need to put 1/3 cup dextrose or less to make it equally sweet.

Up to 100g surcose and 50g fructose is fine on a carb load BTW.
