Tate & Lyle adds the new Dolcia Prima Crystalline Allulose to the low-calorie sweetening range.
It offers all of the same benefits as the existing Dolcia Prima Allulose Syrup for categories and applications such as tabletop sweeteners, dry beverage and meal replacement mixes, fat-based creams and chocolate confectionery.
Allulose is a rare sugar that exists in very small quantities in nature. It can be found in foods such as figs, raisins, molasses and maple syrup. The range is approved for use and is available in the US, Mexico, Colombia and Chile, enabling food and beverage manufacturers to create healthier with the taste, sweetness and texture that – until now – only sugar could provide.
In a 2014 Tate & Lyle survey, nearly 75% of health professionals indicate an interest in recommending products made using allulose when making suggestions to reduce excess calories.
They agree that their patients and clients are more likely to adhere to diet and lifestyle management if they have low-calorie options that have the same great taste and texture as full-calorie versions.
Additionally, Tate & Lyle research has shown that Dolcia Prima Allulose does not raise blood glucose or insulin levels in healthy individuals and those with type 2 diabetes.
