Ingredient giant Ingredion has partnered with Matsutani Chemical Industry Co. to bring the rare sugar allulose to the Americas and aid sugar reduction efforts for food and beverage manufacturers. The rare sugar, which will maintain Matsutani’s Astraea brand, will be manufactured by Ingredion in Mexico and will be marketed across the Americas in 2019. Allulose, also known as psicose, is a monosaccharide and contains virtually no calories. It has the bulk, texture and taste of regular sugar, and 70% of the sweetness.
