Allulose is a keto-friendly sweetener that caramelizes beautifully and provides a delicious flavor to barbecue dishes.
When we set out to create our Red Rock BBQ Seasoning, we wanted to capture the classic, smoky flavor that makes barbecue so delicious without using a common ingredient in most barbecue rubs: sugar. Instead of sugar, we used a plant-based, keto-friendly sweetener called allulose, which we think is just as yummy.
Allulose is found naturally in foods like molasses, maple syrup, raisins, and figs. It has a chemical structure that’s similar to sugar, which may be why it’s a great substitute. It’s not quite as sweet as sugar, but it’s close. Most importantly, it has fewer calories and doesn’t cause blood sugar to spike like sugar does.
Thanks to allulose we were able to create a great-tasting, better-for-you barbecue blend that doesn’t send your blood sugar on a rollercoaster ride, and we hope you like it!
