Anderson Global Group announced that it plans to launch its AllSweet Low-Calorie Sugar at the upcoming IFT tradeshow in Chicago. Anderson Global has partnered with South Korean manufacturer CJ CheilJedang to offer Allulose under the AllSweet brand to food and beverage formulators seeking to reduce total calories, especially those from High Fructose Corn Syrup.

"We are excited to be joining forces with CJ CheilJedang to bring this truly groundbreaking sugar to the US market," says Russ Anderson, President of Anderson Global. "This ingredient performs like regular table sugar, but at a fraction of the calories. The functional advantages of AllSweet are tremendous and we are looking forward to supporting our food and beverage customers to see what kind of innovative, low-calorie products they can produce."

Allulose is a naturally occurring sugar found in fruits and foods such as raisins, figs, kiwis and brown sugar. At only 0.3 kcal/g, AllSweet Allulose Low-Calorie Sugar provides a clean, satisfying sweetness to beverage, bakery, frozen, confectionary and dairy applications. AllSweet performs like sugar in formulations and delivers the sweet satisfaction consumers crave. Allulose is recognized by the taste buds as a simple sugar and yet is not metabolized and has no impact on blood glucose levels.
