FDA guidance means Allulose is no longer part of total & added sugars on labels
Burley Foods is pleased to announce FDA guidance that allulose can be excluded from the total and added sugars declarations on the Nutrition Facts and Supplement Facts labels when it is used as an ingredient. allSWEET® – from Burley’s supply chain partner Anderson Advanced Ingredients® – is the only certified non-GMO allulose source.
In the April 17th announcement, Susan Mayne, Ph.D., director of FDA’s Center for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition, stated: “Today, we’re taking such a step by issuing a draft guidance on the labeling of allulose, a sweetener that may be used as a substitute for certain sugars in foods, so that the information presented on Nutrition and Supplement Facts labels appropriately represents its unique properties. The latest data suggests that allulose is different from other sugars in that it is not metabolized by the human body in the same way as table sugar. It has fewer calories, produces only negligible increases in blood glucose or insulin levels, and does not promote dental decay. As such, we’ve issued guidance today stating that we intend to exercise enforcement discretion to allow allulose to be excluded from the total and added sugars declarations on the Nutrition Facts and Supplement Facts labels when allulose is used as an ingredient.”
allSWEET® is the only certified non-GMO allulose source and is the ideal diabetic-friendly sugar for your beverage, bakery, frozen, confectionary and dairy applications. Temperature stable allSWEET® browns like sugar when baking and lowers the freezing point of frozen products to create delicious, low-calorie desserts and ice creams. allSWEET® works in harmony with other sweeteners and sugars to round out the perfect flavor system. Proprietary weight management studies indicate that allSWEET®containing food & beverages, when paired with an overall healthy diet, may help normalize metabolic status and inhibit the synthesis of fat.
