Allulose is not your average sugar substitute

What Is Allulose:

  • One of the most revolutionary sweeteners to hit the market in decades
  • Makes deep, clean cuts to 90% of added sugars
  • A monosaccharide that can be found naturally in figs, raisins and maple syrup
  • The chemical makeup is almost exactly the same as sucrose, but its slight difference in hydrogen and oxygen structures mean it has just one tenth of the calories of sugar
  • Less than two calories per gram

Allulose As A Sweetening System:

  • Has synergy with other sweeteners
  • Similar taste and texture to sucrose
  • No unpleasant aftertaste and is completely neutral
  • Highly soluble at low or high temperature solutions
  • No cooling effect like sweeteners such as erythritol
  • Moisture-binding also contributes to extended shelf-life, brownies and cookies will not harden over time
  • Provides the expected mouthfeel that sugar imparts, leading to a more satisfying flavor without requiring the addition of bulking ingredients
  • In aerated food systems, foaming properties of egg whites are improved
  • Participation in the Maillard reaction supports browning and adds a golden hue to breads and rolls

Allulose & The Body

  • Unlikely to cause gas or bloating because it resists fermentation in the stomach.
  • Studies suggest Allulose may lower blood glucose levels, which is promising to those with diabetes.
  • Early research shows that allulose has some anti-inflammatory properties and could possibly help with chronic diseases
  • May decrease the risk of type 2 diabetes by protecting the insulin-producing cells in the pancreas
  • Vast amounts of research have conclusively shown that use of allulose will not take the body out of a state of ketosis nor will it affect blood glucose

  • Brands have recently started reformulating with stevia and monk fruit products, but there are many other healthy options consumers don’t know about. Consumers are becoming more health conscious, but they are still often misinformed about sweeteners

  • Cities like Boulder, San Francisco and Albany were the latest major US cities to implement sugar taxes on soft drinks. This is also a global issue; many countries are making similar changes when it comes to sugar consumption
