What's in Coopers brewing sugar products?

Coopers Light Dry Malt - 100% light dry malt (500g)
Coopers Dextrose - 100% dextrose (1kg)
Coopers Brewing Sugar - 80% dextrose, 20% maltodextrin (800g/200g)
Coopers Brew Enhancer 1 - 60% dextrose, 40% maltodextrin (600g/400g)
Coopers Brew Enhancer 2 - 50% dextrose, 25% maltodextrin, 25% light dry malt (500g/250g/250g)

Any of the above products can be substituted with ingredients available at your local home brew shop (LHBS). For example if a recipe that you have done previously called for a package of Coopers Light Dry Malt 500g this could be replaced with 500g of any Light Dry Malt you can get, if your are doing a dark beer or stout you could use a Dark Dry Malt for sightly darker richer beer. If you used it in a beer and you thought the beer could do with a slightly lighter mouth feel or be a bit drier you could swap the Light Dry Malt with some Dextrose. Experimenting like this is fun and can lead to some great beers.

Corn Sugar = Dextrose
Corn Syrup = Maltodextrin

Try and keep the simple sugars (dextrose, white sugar, etc.) at or below 20% of the total fermentables.

I always thought be2 was 500g ldm 250 dex and 250 maltodextrin. And I could never figure out why the 500g of ldm costs about the same as the be2. I guess that explains it
