Here’s What You Need to Know About Allulose Sweetener
Americans love sugar.
Sadly, too many people are hooked on sugar-filled foods and snacks.
Many beverages, such as flavored coffees, teas, and soft drinks, are loaded with sugar or artificial sweeteners.
Artificial sweeteners such as acesulfame potassium (Ace K), aspartame, saccharin, and sucralose may provide sweetness without calories, but they come with a price.
These sweeteners may contribute to high insulin levels, lead to a slower metabolism, increase the risk of heart health issues, negatively skew the good-to-bad bacterial ratio in your gut, cause blood sugar instability, and retrain your taste buds to crave sugar- and fat-filled foods instead of fruits and vegetables.
Consuming diet sodas that contain sucralose and Ace K may lead to an increased production of fat cells. Artificial sweeteners may cause weight gain and other health issues.
If you want to avoid sugar and artificial sweeteners, there are better, healthier options to consider. To add a little sweetness to your coffee, tea, or other beverage of choice, reach for natural, lower-calorie sweeteners like monk fruit powder or stevia. Also, consider sugar alternatives like allulose and erythritol.
Swap Artificial Sweeteners with These 2 Natural Sweeteners
Allulose is a low-calorie sugar naturally found in figs and raisins. Simple sugars (monosaccharides) contain a single sugar molecule. As a monosaccharide, allulose has 90% fewer calories than sucrose (basic sugar).
Allulose doesn’t affect blood sugar or insulin levels in the same way that sugar can, so it’s an ideal natural sweetener for those who deal with diabetes. Since it has super low sugar content, it’s also a good choice for those on the ketogenic diet.
Using allulose, in healthy baked goods and beverages, is a great way to cut back on sugar and overall calorie consumption. Since researchers have recently discovered how to process it on a large scale, allulose seems poised to become a popular natural sweetener in the future.
Erythritol is a sugar alcohol that comes in the form of crystals or powder. Sugar alcohols are organic compounds derived from sugars that have been either manually altered to resemble both sugar and alcohol molecules or are naturally occurring. Erythritol is the latter and is created by fermenting the sugars found in cornstarch.
Erythritol is popular among those who follow the keto diet. Many people like its flavor and the fact that erythritol doesn’t cause blood sugar or insulin levels to spike. Since it’s calorie-free, erythritol is a far more attractive option than regular sugar to those who want to reduce their sugar intake.
In addition to being used in foods and beverages, natural sweeteners also can be found in supplements. Both allulose and erythritol are natural sweeteners used in BrainMD’s new calming supplement…

L-Theanine Gummies Ingredient
L-theanine is an amino acid that occurs naturally in green tea and is credited with the tea’s highly valued relaxing effects.

Use Healthy Sweeteners
Consuming excess sugar can be detrimental to your health. Many illnesses have been linked to excessive sugar intake over extended periods of time.
Finding alternatives to conventional sugar can be a good way to reduce your added sugar intake. Look for foods, beverages, and supplements, like L-Theanine Gummies, that contain healthy sweeteners like allulose, erythritol, and stevia.
If you have any concerning health conditions, it’s a good idea to check with your doctor or a registered dietitian before switching to an alternative sweetener.

While Allulose may naturally occur in fruits, that isn’t how it is obtained for commercial uses. In most cases, it is a corn derivative. Those with an allergy to anything corn, who don’t want to use anything corn, be advised. Blessings.
