Allulose is a low calorie sugar with the same clean, sweet taste you expect from sugar.
- Commercial uses of the sugar are underway by at least two manufacturers, both of whom are marketing their variants as low-calorie sweeteners in beverages, yogurt, ice cream, baked goods, and other typically high-calorie items
- Health benefits of psicose may include improved insulin resistance, antioxidant enhancement and formation, and hypoglycemic controls.
- It’s been shown to resist fermentation by your gut bacteria, minimizing the likelihood of bloating, gas or other digestive problems
- In addition, early research suggests that allulose has anti-inflammatory properties, and may help prevent obesity and reduce the risk of chronic disease
- The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) lists psicose as a generally recognized as safe (GRAS) product and has approved its use in a wide variety of products. Psicose is not yet approved for use in the European Union.
- Allulose appears safe and is unlikely to cause health problems when consumed in moderation. However, as with any food, individual sensitivities are always a possibility.
