Allulose or D-psicose is a rare sugar because it is found in only few foods. It is a single sugar that unlike table sugar that is the marriage of glucose and fructose together. It has the same chemical formula as fructose just arranged differently. Because it is rare manufacturers have found a way to produce allulose by using enzymes to convert fructose from plants like corn.
There is still a lot to learn about this sugar and its effects on humans but so far things have been looking up. Some health benefits are that it does not cause a spike in blood sugar which is a positive for diabetes as an alternative to other sugars. Since it doesn’t ferment in gut bacteria, it lowers the likelihood of bloating, gas or digestive issues. In the future it could be an alternative sugar that helps prevent weight gain and fatty liver as more studies are conducted. To stay on the safe side monitor your sugar intake to stay on a healthy track.
Keep in mind when produced from corn it bypasses all normal digestive patterns and alters metabolism… So in the raw it’s okay when in maintenance.
Secret: Wheat, figs, and raisins are a natural source of Allulose.
