Introducing DOLCIA PRIMA® Allulose
DOLCIA PRIMA® Allulose from Tate & Lyle tastes and performs like sugar because it is a sugar – a low-calorie sugar. With a fraction of the calories of sucrose (table sugar), DOLCIA PRIMA® helps food and beverage manufacturers create products that taste better while maintaining the sweetness and texture that – until now – only sugar could provide.
Allulose is one of many different sugars that exists in nature. It was identified in wheat over 70 years ago and is present in very small quantities in certain fruits such as figs, raisins and jackfruit as well as in foods like caramel sauce, maple syrup and brown sugar. Tate & Lyle has developed a proprietary process to produce allulose on a commercial scale so manufacturers can offer consumers the best of both worlds: all the taste and texture of sugar – and 90% fewer calories than sucrose.
Tate & Lyle consumer research shows that there is a strong interest in lower-calorie products that taste just like the full-calorie versions*. DOLCIA PRIMA® Allulose aims to address that significant need with a great-tasting solution for food and beverage manufacturers.
