Ingredion Joins Consortium to Put Allulose on European Menus

Ingredion Incorporated, Cosun Beet Company, Matsutani Chemical Industry and Samyang Corporation recently announced a new consortium to help bring allulose to the EU and UK markets and support its nutritional labeling as a carbohydrate. The new consortium is called the Allulose Novel Food Consortium (ANFC). Companies seeking approval of allulose in Europe who are interested in joining the consortium are encouraged to contact the ANFC.

Allulose is authorized as a food ingredient in many countries worldwide, including Japan, Mexico, Singapore, South Korea, and the U.S. It is also under regulatory evaluation in several other countries and regions. In addition, allulose is FEMA (Flavor Extract Manufacturers Association) GRAS (Generally Recognized As Safe) for use as a flavoring in beverages and milk products.

ANFC’s members believe that a single, joint, proprietary European Union (EU and UK) novel food application could accelerate the approval process, providing time and cost savings for members. In addition, members anticipate that approval of allulose as a novel food ingredient would benefit European and global food industries because of its potential as much more than just a low-calorie sweetening ingredient. EU regulatory approval would also be very influential to other international food regulators bringing this novel food ingredient to the market. The development of reduced-calorie / reduced-sugar foods could also support any government policies for sugar reduction.

ANFC’s next goal is to petition for the exemption of allulose from sugar labeling in the EU/UK market, as per the situation in the U.S. and South Korea.

“Formation of the Allulose Novel Food Consortium is an exciting step forward towards accelerating more widespread use of allulose in Europe,” said Shigehiro Hayashi, Matsutani Chemical and ANFC. “With our members combined knowledge and expertise in the science of healthy food and beverage ingredients, we aim to enable allulose to reach its true potential and recognize that this could help in achieving a reduction in calorie intake – a major public health initiative.”
