Introduction to Allulose
Also known as
Allulose syrup, crystalline allulose
Dolcia Prima Allulose

DOLCIA PRIMA® Allulose, a low-calorie sweetening ingredient, offers the uncompromised taste and mouthfeel of sugar, without all the calories or glycaemic impact. Allulose also behaves like sugar, making formulation easier for food and beverage manufacturers. DOLCIA PRIMA® Allulose provides bulking and sweetness in food and beverage products while reducing calories, and therefore it can be used in practically any application that conventionally employs nutritive and non-nutritive sweeteners.

In addition to those benefits, allulose now has a new level of appeal for manufacturers and their consumers alike in the US. Due to an FDA decision, allulose is now allowed to be exempt from “Sugars” and “Added Sugars” on the Nutrition Facts Panel.

Allulose is 70% as sweet as sugar and has the same onset, peak and dissipation of sweetness as sugar. Based on years of testing, we know that allulose is best suited to help manufacturers reduce calories in full-sugar products when combined with caloric sweeteners, and make existing low-calorie products taste even better when combined with non-caloric sweeteners. It adds bulk and texture, depresses the freezing point in frozen products, and browns when baking.

DOLCIA PRIMA® Allulose, a low-calorie sweetening ingredient, is the great-tasting sweetening option that provides the full taste and enjoyment of sugar, without all the calories. Allulose was first identified in wheat in the 1930s and has since been found in small quantities in certain fruits including figs, raisins, and maple syrup.

Our DOLCIA PRIMA® Allulose line of crystalline and syrup products includes both non-GMO and traditional variants.

How we apply DOLCIA PRIMA® Allulose

DOLCIA PRIMA® works well in combination with the most commonly used nutritive and non-nutritive sweeteners, and it works in synergy with certain high-potency sweeteners such as sucralose and stevia. These synergies enable manufacturers to formulate with other ingredients to reduce calories in full-sugar products and make existing low-calorie products taste even better.
