We’re headed to Houston to learn from and introduce Sweetie to the country’s leading diabetes educators at AADE19.
Allulose, the sweetner in Sweetie, is also known as D-psicose. It is classified as a "rare sugar" because it is naturally present in only a few foods. Wheat, figs and raisins all contain it.
Like glucose and fructose, allulose is a monosaccharide, or single sugar. In contrast, table sugar, also known as sucrose, is a disaccharide made of glucose and fructose joined together.
And here’s some good news for people who have diabetes or are watching their blood sugar — it does not raise blood sugar or insulin levels!!
