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:
