Where can I buy Dextrose (also known as Destrosio or sucre de raisin)

Hello,


I'm looking for Dextrose to make some nice gelato but I am having a hard time finding it at the shop.
Normally you'd find this in the baking section but neither coop nor migros have it.
Does anyone know where to find it in the region of Morges/Lausanne?

Hi

I just ordered for the same purpose and received 1 kg of dextrose online from lee-Sport.ch or whey-protein.ch A Swiss shop. Cost me including shipping 13 CHF.

Cheers

Coop normally has it. In the German part, it's Traubenzucker (which doesn't help, I know)

Ohh, I will try to go down the local coop and ask with that as well. Thanks!


EDIT: One has only to hope that the French side is similar though :P


Can you see it in this page? https://www.coop.ch/de/search/?text=Traubenzucker I cannot see the product online...

I can't see it either. Maybe they've stopped selling it.

This is what I bought.

They sell it in the pharmacy.
Both Sunstore and Amavita stock it.

This is the one I bought.

The coop and Migros in Zurich that I checked only had flavoured dextrose. I hope you are more at your end.

It is also called Glucose sometimes. If not available in local supermarkets, then it can be bought in most sport-food shops (just look for raw). E.g. https://www.bodysport.ch/de/p/2346/D...nhydraten.html

For most Gelatos, from my experience, can be easily swapped for Feinster [Back]zucker. Yes, Fruchtose has a different taste from Glucose, but it is usually well masked by lactose and milk fats - just don't put too much.

I need dextrose for its anti-icing capabilities, I don't think changing the type would give the same result.


Thanks for the various links!

Bit of a crap website as you need to give your email address etc before you can find out how much shipping will cost.

Coop Vitality sell 500g for 3.95, they call it Morga Traubenzucker.
Plus twice that for shipping if you can't pick it up.

Hm yes, you are right, I was using them because you can get things that it is hard to get in other places (malic acid) and the prices are ok. I would call it typical Swiss online shop, where "online" is not thoroughly executed.

I checked my old orders, it was always:
Porto und Verpackung = 14.00 chf

Otherwise, I am often searching for online shops to buy ingredients and it is tough in Switzerland. Chocolate nubs, quinine, hibiscus, pectin, different kind of sugars etc, you can buy them in small quintets for 10x price, and for bigger packages, you usually have access only as a company. Aligro, TopCC etc sadly have only very basic stuff.

I just bought chocolate nibs at alnatura, but yeah, I think a bit expensive. Maybe chf5 for 100g.

Hibiscus (if you’re talking about dried flowers for tea and stuff) el maiz (Mexican store in Zurich.

For different sugars..... i guess it depends on what you want. Quinine and pectin, I haven’t a clue.
