5 Easy Ways to Use Allulose In Your Daily Routine

5 Easy Ways to Use Allulose In Your Daily Routine

Good news for weight management! Exciting research has recently come out showing that allulose—the zero-calorie sweetener we love to love here at Scotty’s—is actually being shown to have a similar effect in your body to GLP-1 weight loss medications like Ozempic and Wegovy! Yes, you read that right. 

How does it work? 

A number of studies are indicating that allulose can trigger GLP-1 (Glucagon-Like Peptide-1), the same hormone influenced by these weight loss drugs. 

This hormone signals your body to release insulin (which helps reduce blood sugar levels), as well as slow digestion and promote a feeling of fullness. That’s why these weight loss meds are known for causing people to eat less and ultimately lose weight.

Although research is ongoing, it’s exciting that allulose appears to have a similar impact on GLP-1. 

How many grams should you take? 

Research is still early, but studies suggest that 5 grams per meal is enough to reduce blood glucose levels in healthy individuals after eating—and that translates to about 2 teaspoons. 

Research also shows an influence on body fat. In one study, 121 Korean adults took either 4 or 7 grams of allulose (or a placebo) twice daily for 12 weeks. The group taking more allulose showed a significant drop in body fat, including abdominal fat.

Another small study found that 13 healthy adults who received 5 grams of allulose prior to a meal experienced improved energy metabolism. 

In addition, research tracking allulose intake of 5-15 grams (1-3 teaspoons) per day for up to 48 weeks has not shown this amount to be associated with any negative effects.

  3. Blend it in your smoothies - Are you an on-the-go eater? Smoothies are perfect for sipping on your way to the gym or office, but sometimes they could use a little extra sweetness. Add allulose to balance the flavors in your green smoothie or high protein shake.
