The wait is over, our latest addition to our product line has arrived – Allulose!
Allulose, also known as D-Psicose, naturally occurs in small amounts in edible plants and fruits such as figs, jackfruit, and raisins. Because it is produced in such small yields, Allulose is considered a rare sugar and increasing in popularity due to its lower calorie content, about a tenth of the calories of table sugar! Compared to Sucrose, it carries a similar taste with notably reduced sweetness estimated to be 70% of the sweetness of sucrose.
Although this simple sugar was first identified in the 1940s, a mass-production method wasn’t established until about 1994. Today, allulose is mainly produced from corn as well as beet sugar. This material is an off-white powder with a neutral odor and sweet flavor profile. When used in baking and other typical food and beverage applications that require sweetening, Allulose acts nearly identical to sucrose.
For those who follow a keto lifestyle or low to no-sugar diet, allulose may make a suitable alternative to sucrose. Formulators may opt to use allulose in place of sucrose for products that require a lower sugar or calorie content, or if the product simply requires a milder sweet flavor profile. Allulose is often incorporated into protein bars, baked goods, powdered beverage mixes, syrups, ice creams, and other food and beverage manufacturing applications.
