Dextrose aka grape sugar is a naturally occurring form of glucose. 70% as sweet as sugar and very hygroscopic. It inhibits crystallization in ice creams and sorbets and also provides flexibility to rolled fondant.(fun fact: it's called grape sugar but is made from corn)
Isomalt is a natural sweetener, and an excellent sugar substitute. It has sugar-like physical properties, can be used in a 1:1 ratio for granulated sugar, and provides the taste, texture and half the calories of sugar. Isomalt is a low digestible carbohydrate made from beet sugar. It may be suitable for individuals needing to control their blood glucose and insulin levels, or for lower calorie, healthier recipe alternatives.
Isomalt is perfect for sugar pulling and casting of all your sweet decorations (flowers, leaves, ribbons, etc...). It offers a higher resistance to humidity and stays flexible longer than regular sugar. There is no need for stabilizing acids. Isomalt creates a superior shine and will not crystallize like sugar. Isomalt does not get any coloration until reaching 190C / 375F. Isomalt can be colored like any usual sugar.
Sorbitol is a corn derived sugar alcohol that is 60% as sweet as sugar. It is used in many sugar free, low calorie and diabetic products. Sorbitol will not brown or caramelize like sucrose.
