I have partnered with The Brand Connection and Allulose to bring you this information, all opinions are mine alone.
When the New Year arrived, most of us developed a wellness routine. This routine may be to help us either stay on track or reset our bodies on the path towards a healthier self. My goal for this year is to maintain the results that I saw with kicking the sugar habit last year. But it has not been easy, especially with having two young children who love sweets and all kinds of treats that are not so forgiving on the waistline.
In order to reasonably maintain my mostly sugar-free lifestyle, I needed to find the ultimate sugar replacement. My knowledge and understanding of DOLCIA PRIMA® Allulose arrived at the perfect time (hint: the sugar tsunami that is Valentine’s Day!). DOLCIA PRIMA Allulose is a non-artificial, low-calorie sweetening ingredient that has no unpleasant aftertaste, and provides all the taste, texture, and functionality of sugar – with 90% less calories!
What is Allulose?
Allulose is a rare sugar found in nature in very small quantities in certain fruits such as figs and raisins. Clinical Studies have shown that Allulose does not significantly raise blood glucose or insulin levels. It has been deemed GRAS (Generally Recognized As Safe) by the FDA, making it a healthy alternative to use in place of sugar.
Allulose also does not increase blood glucose or insulin levels, making it a healthy and low-calorie alternative to use in place of sugar, particularly for individuals with type 2 diabetes. It is also now available as non-GMO project verified, and works with your low carb or Keto diet.
If you were to ask me if I could taste the difference, not only would I say no, but I even believe it tastes better than traditional sugar. You have the sweet taste that you crave with sweets, it has an authentic, subtly sweet taste. I felt satisfied after just one scoop of Sweetie ® Ice Cream, which is made with DOLCIA PRIMA Allulose, and did not desire to go rummaging around my home for more sweets, something that I typically do.
Sweetie ® Ice Cream
Ice cream is one of our favorite treats to have around the house. Every member of our family loves to enjoy ice cream all year long. Sweetie ® is a low-fat ice cream with reduced sugar containing less than 2 grams of fat, and 7 grams or less of sugar per ½ cup serving. The taste was sweet and clean, and the texture was creamy and satisfying. All of this great taste and knowing you are consuming a fraction of the amount of sugar and calories is a win-win.
Sweetie Ice Cream is so delicious and is available in Vanilla, Chocolate, Salted Caramel, Mango Passionfruit, Coffee and Blueberries ‘n’ Cream. My particular two favorites are Coffee and Blueberries ‘n’ Cream, two flavors that I usually don’t choose in the grocery store. Sweetie Ice Cream is served at a number of stores and creameries throughout Massachusetts, Connecticut, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, and Vermont. It can also be purchased online and delivered to your doorstep.
