Default Priming Sugar?

This is probably a stupid question, but, does anyone know if the LD Carlson 5 oz bags of "Priming Sugar" is simply corn sugar or something different? I have about 20 packs and want to use it in Edworts AW recipe. Thanks.

It should just be dextrose (corn sugar)

I figured that, but was not sure why they label it different?
Thanks.

Well I would think the 5oz bags are labeled that way because its the average amount of dextrose to prime a 5 gallon batch.

For example at my LHBS the 5oz bags say priming sugar, but the 1, 2 and 4lb bags say corn sugar. Its the same stuff though.
