About Allulose

What is Allulose? 

Allulose is a natural low calorie sweetener derived from sources like dates and figs with the same taste and texture as table sugar. The FDA has labeled it a “rare sugar” so just to clarify: Allulose is NOT a sugar alcohol! It lives in a class of its own because it is actually a sugar. Cool thing: it has a unique nutritional profile as it shares a typical chemical structure of a carbohydrate but only contributes a fraction of the calories (1/10th of the calories of regular sugar) and doesn’t raise blood sugar levels. WOW.

 

Not Counted as Sugar

According to U.S Food and Drug Administration (FDA), allulose does not need to be listed under total sugars or added sugars, although it must be labeled as a carbohydrate since it is technically classified as such. 

Tastes like Sugar

We were shocked too. Allulose is a monosaccharide- a simple sugar - so it tastes just like sugar! Allulose has no aftertaste like many sugar substitutes, alternatives and sugar alcohols.

Straight from Nature

Allulose is a “rare sugar” that is found in things like figs, raisins, maple syrup and jackfruit.

No Digestive Issues

Unlike sugar alcohols 80% of Allulose is absorbed into your blood stream from your digestive tract so it doesn’t remain there to wreak havoc on your gut.

Diabetic and Keto Friendly

Allulose has no impact on blood glucose levels. While some Allulose is absorbed it is not metabolized or broken down in the body.
