Are you currently on the hunt for a substitute for table sugar as
well as artificial sweeteners associated with all kinds of health risks such as
obesity, diabetes and certain forms of cancer? This article will get you
introduced to a natural type of sweetener, and it’s called allulose.
But before you proceed, don’t forget to repost this article later
on so that your figure- and health-conscious family members and friends may
also get acquainted with this very promising alternative to table sugar as well
as other forms of sweeteners out there.
Allulose is a relative newcomer in the fight against obesity,
diabetes and many other problems that have something to do with the addition of
excessive amounts of sugar in the diet — it’s just recently that it received
the approval of the FDA.
Unlike most substitutes to table sugar, allulose is completely
natural. In fact, it is present in a number of foods such as raisins, figs and
It’s the fact that it is 100 percent from nature that makes it
highly appealing most especially among consumers who are conscious about their
health — without the presence of chemicals, it’s less likely to cause problems
along the way.
One of the nicest things about allulose is it comes very close to
table sugar physically and taste-wise. It looks and feels like it, and it also
tastes like it — experts say that it’s about 70 percent as sweet as the real
thing, which makes it similar to another well-known sweetener called
Due to the fact that it’s pretty much just like table sugar, it
yields no bitter aftertaste just like most other artificial sweeteners, in
particular those that activate not only the sweet taste receptors of your tongue
but also the bitter taste receptors.
Table sugar is actually from nature, although it’s regarded as
unhealthy because of the processing involved. Since allulose is also from
nature, it has the same chemical formula just like table sugar but the
molecules are arranged in a completely different manner.
It’s for this reason exactly why majority of allulose that you
include in your diet is said to be flushed out of your body by means of your
urine. Although up to 84 percent of the allulose you consume is absorbed by the
body, a large portion of it is unused and peed out.
This is the reason why it is very promising most especially for
people who are suffering from diabetes. Because much of allulose is simply
removed from the body, the levels of sugar in the bloodstream can be kept
within the normal range trouble-free.
Allulose may look, feel and taste like table sugar, but the fact
is it contains much less calories than the real deal. According to scientists,
every serving of allulose contains only 1/10th of the calories found in the
same amount of table sugar.
Needless to say, allulose is highly suited for people who are
trying to cut back on their daily caloric intake in order to shed off excess
pounds or keep their ideal weight intact.
Currently, it seems like allulose is the perfect replacement not
only for table sugar but other artificial sweeteners currently available on the
market. It’s just like table sugar in terms of its appearance and taste, but it
does not come with the health nightmares associated with the use of table
Because it’s just been recently approved by the FDA, there’s not
enough scientific investigations conducted about its potential impact on the
health especially when it’s used for a long time. But based on
currently-existing data, it seems like allulose is the perfect sweetener
