Deliver sweet indulgence without all the calories 

More and more consumers are cutting back on sugar — 84% say they have reduced their sugar intakes over the past year.1 Now you can trim calories while maintaining the sweet taste and rich textures your consumers love with noncaloric ASTRAEA® Allulose. 

Developed by the global rare sugars pioneer, ASTRAEA® Allulose tastes and functions like sucrose with almost none of the calories, helping you replace sucrose in your formulations without compromising performance. 

This ingredient solution also has a similar taste profile to sucrose and is 70% as sweet, helping you add sweet appeal to your low-calorie indulgences. 

ASTRAEA® Allulose offers the performance of sucrose while adding only 0.2 calories per gram to your formulations. 

• Replace more sucrose in your low-calorie beverages with this highly soluble ingredient solution while bringing back bulk and enhancing mouthfeel

• Get comparable browning, dough properties and baked volumes as you would with sucrose in your reduced-calorie baked goods 

• Stop crystallization in reduced-calorie, high-solids fruit preps and get the freeze-point depression you need in low-calorie ice creams and frozen dairy desserts along with the mouthfeel consumers prefer 

• Formulate perfectly sweet candies, gummies, chocolate and more with less sucrose 

And, with typical usage levels (2% to 100%), allulose is well-tolerated and has been shown to have no effect on blood glucose levels.2
