Allulose

Allulose, also known as D-psicose, is a low-calorie monosaccharide sugar that has the taste and texture of sucrose but with 90 percent fewer calories. It is approximately 70 percent as sweet as sucrose, and its solubility increases with temperature. It is found naturally in sources such as wheat, figs, raisins, and jackfruit.

Allulose offers many of the same functional benefits of sucrose, but with only five percent of the calories. It does not metabolize like sugar and has a minimal effect on blood sugar and insulin. Allulose is recognized as GRAS by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA). In 2019, the FDA ruled that it does not have to be included in the total and added sugar nutritional labeling.

With low net carbohydrates, allulose is keto- and paleo-friendly, as well as grain- and gluten-free. It is often blended with other natural sweeteners such as stevia, monk fruit, and erythritol.
