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
¾ cup rice
½ cup raisins
¼ teaspoon fresh cardamom powder
½ bay leaf
½ 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.
