Our real sugar without any calories
Allulose – outstanding zero-calorie sweetness for food and drinks
We obtain our allulose from locally cultivated sugar beet (Beta vulgaris). Allulose is a purely plant-based raw material that also occurs naturally in dried figs, kiwis and raisins.
In view of its chemical and physical properties, allulose can be used as a syrup and, in granulated form, as a versatile ingredient of food and drinks. It has almost 100% fewer calories than sucrose – just 0.2 kcal, and is 70% as sweet.
Good to know: Allulose is the subject of an ongoing application for approval as a novel food ingredient.
SAVANNA is engaged in work on functional carbohydrates, in particular allulose, with the aid of a publicly sponsored project. The Federal Ministry of Food and Agriculture in Germany is supporting the research project in the context of a national initiative to reduce the consumption of fat, salt and sugar.
