This Trader Joe’s allulose sugar substitute is new for 2021 and is an interesting sweetener with a lot fewer calories than sugar. It tastes a tad less sweet than regular old sugar (70% as sweet supposedly) and legitimately tastes and feels like real sugar in general. It can be used as a one to one sugar substitute, and is derived naturally from the stevia plant. Because of the way the body breaks this down compared to sugar, this won’t cause weight gain, diabetes or other risks associated with regular sugar. At its core, this is real sugar, just a different form, but there haven’t been a ton of studies yet on long term effects. Supposedly there’s been some gastrointestinal issues related to it, but it seems like its too early to tell. In any case, Trader Joe’s allulose seems to be a great alternative to regular sugar, and especially huge for diabetics or people that shouldn’t consume real sugar. ………….

Trader Joe’s Sweetener, Allulose Sugar Substitute
There have been a few different sugar sweetener alternatives at TJs over the years, but this is the first that I can remember using real sugar that actually tastes like legit sugar. Has anyone baked with this Trader Joe’s allulose? I’m curious to know if this taste or feels any different in chocolate chip cookies or brownie recipes. And if you can’t make it out to TJs, give these items a try…..

Trader Joe’s Stevia review

Thanks for the info! I tried this and, unlike pure stevia or erythritol, it seems not to have an off, odd, or bitter taste. That said, I’d take issue to the contention that it’s 70% as sweet as sugar. I’d say more like 50%. I kept finding myself having to add “just a little bit more” to attain the right level of sweetness.
Thanks Annie. I think in reality you are probably right that it’s not even 70% as sweet, but still a nice alternative!
I would like to know the breakdown of Allulose vs. Steviol Glycosides. Other brands that I have purchased prior to this one only show Allulose as the only ingredient.
It is not available in my store in NYC now in August 2022. When is it coming back on shelf?
I’m trying to find what the allulose is derived from. I have multiple food allergies, and need to know before I try it. It’s sitting on my shelf staring at me. I had sent an email over a month ago but no response. Is it derived from a fruit? Corn?
I heard that it is derives from corn. Defiantly NOT Stevia plant as otherwise it will be stevia.
Cathryn, the sugar is derived from the stevia plant I believe. It’s real sugar and it’s from a plant..hope that helps
I have used Allulose for baking chocolate chip cookies. They turned out really good. They were a little different but I used almond flour. I have made cheesecake and it is very good.
This item is now discontinued- does anyone know where this particular type of allulose can be found??? Any help would be appreciated!
Such a bummer, I can’t believe it’s discontinued!!
Always the favorites!!
