Dextrose for a drink mix

I seem to remember a TR podcast that mentioned Dextrose as a good place to start in building my own sports drink for on the bike. I cannot find the episode of the podcast that this was mentioned and would appreciate some guidance. There also is not any written information when I searched here.

Also does anyone make their own mix using dextrose and if so what is your favourite recipe? BTW dextrose is very very sharp.

Its super easy. I make gatorade from powder, then just add dextrose until I’ve got as many calories in the bottle as I’d like.

I’ve repaired the links in my post above, so they work now.

For future reference (since this happens with many of the old links), copy/paste part of the topic description into the forum search and you usually get to the proper link.
