     (so called from turning the plane of polarization to the
     right), occurring in many ripe fruits, and also called
     glucose. Dextrose and levulose are obtained by the
     inversion of cane sugar or sucrose, and hence the mixture is
     called called invert sugar. Dextrose is chiefly obtained by

           sirup. These are harmless, but are only about half as
           sweet as cane sugar or sucrose. Dextrously
