German firm Savanna Ingredients is pleased to announce that our low-caloric sugar – Allulose – obtained a selfaffirmed Generally Recognized As Safe (GRAS) status in the United States of America.

After a comprehensive evaluation of the gathered information on Allulose, a panel of independent experts confirmed that our Allulose is now GRAS self-affirmed for the end-uses envisaged by Savanna Ingredients.

The defined end-uses include the following applications: beverages, bakery products, confectionary, dressings and sauces, dairy products, jams and preserves, processed meat and syrups at levels ranging from 1 to 55%.

D-Allulose also known as D-Psicose is a monosaccharide and manufactured by enzymatic epimerization from fructose obtained from locally cultivated sugar beets (Beta vulgaris). Therefore, it is purely plantbased. All raw materials used for the production of our Allulose are GMO-free.

Allulose occurs naturally in small quantities in dried figs, kiwis and raisins. According to the scientific knowledge of today the human body is not capable of metabolizing allulose besides bacterial fermentation in the large intestine.

Studies also show a very low glycemic index and insulin response for allulose, making it suitable for people suffering from diabetes.
