Relief for Major Food Suppliers after FDA Approves ‘Natural Sugar’: Allulose
In April 2019, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) passed a clearance for Allulose as a food additive. Allulose possesses very few calories and a high amount of sweetness levels as compared to sugar. Although allulose has reduced health risks as compared to some other artificial sweeteners such as aspartame, the side effects of allulose are mostly seen when it is consumed in high amount.
The approval of allulose was backed by a number of clinical trials. These clinical trials indicated that allulose possesses reduced health risks and amounts to 70% of the sweetness levels as normal sugar.
The usage clearance from FDA came about as a major relief for food and beverage manufacturing companies, as they can now make use of allulose in their products as an alternative to sugar and synthetic sweeteners.
Major Segmentation includes;
- Acesulfame potassium
- Sugar Alcohols
- Food and Beverage
- Personal Care and Cosmetics
The increasing use of allulose is likely to boost the global sugar substitutes and is likely to enable the growth of the market in the forthcoming years.
