About ASTRAEA Product InformationAbout ASTRAEA Product Information

What is ASTRAEA Allulose?

Astraea is the trademark of Matsutani Chemical Industry Co. Ltd. The brand name represents our line of allulose products. Allulose is a monosaccharide from rare sugar. Rare sugars exit in nature in extremely small quantities and can be found in some plants, fruits, and prepared foods such as ketchup.
Allulose can be efficiently produced from fructose. Astraea Allulose will be available in both liquid and crystalline forms.

How is ASTRAEA Allulose produced?

Astraea Allulose is produced by enzymatic conversion of fructose through a proprietary process developed in a collaboration with Kagawa University.

How is ASTRAEA Allulose used?

Astraea allulose is used in food and beverage applications to replace typical full calorie sugars such as sucrose (table sugar) and High Fructose Corn Syrup to reduce calories. Astraea’s sweetness profile is very similar to sucrose so manufacturers can maintain the full sensory and taste appeal while adding only a trivial amount of calories, just 0.2 kcal/gram!

How was ASTRAEA Allulose developed?

Prof. Izumori of Kagawa University in Japan developed the technology “Izumoring” which made it possible to produce D-allulose in large scale in 1994.
Kagawa University, Kagawa Prefecture and Matsutani Chemical Industy have established an industry-government-academia research group and conducted extensive researches of rare sugars since 1999.

What are the characteristics of Astraea Allulose?

*Taste : Clean sweet taste, no after taste
*Sweetness : 70% of sucrose
*Physical Properties : Similar to Fructose
*Caloric value: 0.2 kcal/g

Is it safe?

ASTRAEA Allulose is generally recognized as safe(GRAS) by the US Food and Drug Administration(FDA) under GRAS #498.
