It's supposed to be a great sweetener for diabetics, since it does not affect blood glucose or insulin.
You can find allulose for sale online and in some retail stores. Because it occurs naturally in very small amounts, the allulose you find packaged for sale isn’t its natural form. It has been created artificially by food scientists from fructose (fruit sugar). Sort of reminds me of high fructose corn syrup with talk like that!
“Chemically, allulose is similar to fructose, which is found naturally in fruits,” DiMarino explains. “It’s roughly 70% as sweet as sugar, so it tastes very similar. It is also not absorbed into the body, and therefore, does not contribute to your daily caloric intake.”
Well, even though, it's been approved by the FDA, it has not been approved in Canada and European countries.
For me, it has caused discomfort, such as gas and giving me the runs, if I take a spoonful for more. So, if I use it, I use it sparingly.
