What Is Allulose?
Allulose is a natural sugar that we can’t metabolize [*], which means it tastes and acts like sugar without spiking our blood sugar. Found in fruit, maple syrup and other plants, it’s 70% as sweet as sugar.
The name “allulose” sounds like glucose, fructose, lactose, and other sugar names, because it’s in the same family. But unlike these sugars, we can’t process allulose.
That means allulose has:
✅ Zero calories
✅ Zero grams net carbs
✅ Zero glycemic index
Allulose is the perfect natural sweetener and sugar replacement!
What Is Besti?
Besti is Wholesome Yum’s line of natural, sugar-free sweeteners – they are Nature’s Sugar Replacement. We carry premium, non-GMO pure erythritol and allulose, as well as our signature Besti monk fruit blends with erythritol or allulose, for easy 1:1 sugar alternatives in granulated and powdered form.
Why Use Allulose Sweetener?
Allulose is nature’s sugar replacement. It has all the benefits of using sugar…
✅ Tastes like sugar – with no aftertaste!
✅ Bakes like sugar
✅ Dissolves like sugar – unlike sugar alcohols!
✅ Browns like sugar – unlike most sweeteners!
…But unlike sugar, there is no blood sugar spike and crash, fat storage, tooth decay, or other negative effects of sugar.
What Does Allulose Taste Like?
Allulose tastes exactly like sugar, because it is in fact a rare type of sugar (minus the carbs and calories)! The only difference is it’s slightly less sweet. In fact, we challenge you to tell the difference between allulose and sugar in your own blind taste test.
Many sugar alternatives have a chemical or bitter aftertaste, but allulose does not. Unlike erythritol, it also does not have any cooling sensation.
Is Allulose A Good Sugar Replacement For Me?
Yes, allulose is a versatile natural sugar replacement for everyone! Whether you are trying to cut carbs, lose weight, or simply reducing sugar intake, allulose is an excellent sugar-free sweetener to use.
In addition to taste and texture, our allulose ticks all the boxes for a healthier sugar replacement:
How To Use Allulose Sugar-Free Sweetener
Use Besti allulose sweetener to replace granulated sugar in your favorite sweet recipes, including desserts, baked goods, drinks, sauces, and more!
It tastes, bakes, browns, and dissolves the same way sugar does.
Crystallized allulose has a slightly finer consistency than granulated sugar, but you can still use it the same way you would use granulated sugar.
Allulose produces very soft baked goods, which is great for cookies, cakes, muffins, pancakes, and most other uses for a sugar replacement. Here are some alternatives for other uses:
- For crispier baked goods, try combining allulose with erythritol sweetener.
- For super smooth texture, such as frostings, sauces, dressings, and cheesecakes, use powdered allulose sweetener instead.
Because allulose is 70% as sweet as sugar, you’ll need 1 1/3 cups allulose to replace each cup of sugar:

I have been making ice cream now for several months -- received an ice cream maker as a gift. I've tried many other sweeteners, but allulose is the absolute best for making scoopable ice cream. It works with every flavor -- I've made chocolate, strawberry, mocha (leftover morning coffee, cooled and added to mix), and mixed-berry, and every time I've used allulose as the sweetener, it's been a success.
I'm really happy with the variety of allulose products carried here, and the prices, too -- they are excellent. I look forward to trying other options, for ice cream and baking and more. The really great thing is that I'm a longtime diabetic, and this sweetener had made my BGs very happy! I'm a fan, for sure.
When we found that monk fruit sweetener spiked my husband’s blood sugar, I decided to try the Allulose. I am so glad I did. It doesn’t spike him and tastes so good in all my baked goods. It blends so well, no crystals.
Hi Sharon, We're so glad you like our allulose! We also wanted to let you know, if you used another brand of monk fruit, it's almost always the filler in them (typically erythritol) that can cause spikes for some people. If you like monk fruit (and clearly you like allulose), you can also try our monk fruit with allulose here: https://www.wholesomeyumfoods.com/shop/sweeteners/monk-fruit/monk-fruit-allulose-blend/
I used this as soon as it came in! Use it in my coffee, replaced my regular sugar which was hard to do for me in my coffee. Would love to see this in packets to carry with me. Hint hint

This tastes so good in my baked items. It taste good in coffee and the best thing is that there is no horrible after taste.
Nature's Besti sugar replacement tastes and bakes just like traditional powdered sugar. I'm buying more right now.
I really wanted to love this product but it didn’t work as well as erythritol in our baking recipes. It does ok in coffee and the flavor is pleasant without being overly sweet.
I was really happy to be able to buy four bags of Besti Allulose on sale and have them delivered for free to my Canadian address near Niagara Falls. The first thing I made with the Besti Allulose was some chocolate ice cream and it turned out so much better and easier to scoop than using erythritol!
The second thing I made was the recipe on the bag from Besti, and almond flour chocolate chip cookie recipe. This is the first time I've been able to make a nice chewy cookie that is low carb and not made with peanut butter as the main ingredient!
Allulose seems to be a game changer so far and I look forward to doing some more baking with it in the near future!
Always very happy with Besti products. I really like how it keeps baking moist and doesn't recrystallize.
Newly diagnosed prediabetic, I realize I have a window to reverse that if I take action. My choice was to lose weight by using Ozempic to curb cravings, and modify my diet -- not by 'dieting' per se, but rather, by changing my eating habits to a new model that I could stick to for life. I have dieted, lost weight, rebounded, etc. I have succeeded with keto, then lost that battle. So, my conviction is to stick to a low carb diet, and cut sugar in an attempt to stabilize my blood sugar. This Besti crystallized is a life saver! It tastes soooo much like sugar without the penalties! Yes, it is perhaps 70% as sweet, but I even like that reduced sugary taste! Sometimes sugar can be too sweet!! I am thrilled at this discovery. Forget sucralose, aspartame, even stevia with its bitter after taste. Besti Allulose is the best. I didn't order enough on my first order....
Baking is a must in my house and this product truly feels so much more like real sugar than any other sweetener I have ever found in stores.
