Dextrose

Postby Dan P. » Fri May 06, 2011 5:05 am

Received an order of dextrose today, from Hyperdrug dotco dotuk at £5.86 for 3kg, about 89p a pound. Of course the devil is in the postage details, but I allow myself to ignore that part.
FYI the dextrose is for my racing pigeons. I would never dream of shoring up my crummy conversion rates by using it in my wash.

now you tell me.
Scobies' price has gone up, but still a considerable saving at 68p/lb.

Dunno about postage, but worth a look, 25kg dextrose for less than 25 quid, plus every other sugar product you have never heard of.
