You read that right! How can something sweet be good for you? Say hello to Allulose, one of the ingredients in our new NUTRIBOBA Proprietary Fat Metabolism Boost Blend. Although technically part of the sugar family, it is not considered by the FDA (Food & Drug Administration) as an added sugar because of its special properties. In fact, allulose is 100% suitable for all individuals including those with high-blood sugar and diabetes.
Why is FDA actually supporting these claims?
Allulose is a monosaccharide, or rare sugar, and is considered a diabetic friendly low-calorie sweetener that quickly gets excreted through urine and does not penetrate the blood-brain barrier. What does this mean? It means that it will not spike your blood-sugar levels as sugar does.
Where does Allulose come from?
Allulose is usually made from jackfruit, raisins and figs, it elicits no glycemic response and studies indicate a potential inhibition of fat synthesis.
How does Allulose compare to white or table sugar?
Allulose has 90% fewer calories than sugar, is 70% as sweet as sucrose (regular table sugar or cane sugar) and possesses nearly identical organoleptic properties – white, clean, and sweet taste. But one thing is for sure, Allulose is different. Being good for diabetics or those watching their sugar intake, Allulose is not metabolized so it can be used part of a healthy diet.
How can Allulose help you lose weight?
Allulose is not recognized by the body as a carbohydrate and is not metabolized as energy, so it has a negligible number of calories. As part of an overall healthy diet, foods low in calories can help control and manage overall body weight.
Have there been studies done on the effects of Allulose?
A study done on 14 healthy adults consuming allulose at 5 to 20 g reported urinary excretion of allulose at 66-79% and low microbial fermentability of allulose in the large intestine . Learn More. Research has also found allulose to be well tolerated without causing any gastrointestinal symptoms.
Further studies show that allulose suppresses glycemic response of other glycemic carbohydrates when tested with carbohydrates or within a meal. When tested as a single ingredient, allulose is shown to be non-glycemic. Learn More.
