I had never heard of allulose before but I was listening to my friend Peter Attia being interviewed on Jocko Willink’s podcast and the topic came up. It’s a pretty interesting. Apparently allulose is a rare naturally occurring sugar substitute. Peter explains that the chemical structure looks like fructose but with a small exception and that exception makes all the difference to how it affects the body; it is not metabolised by the liver, it is largely excreted by the kidneys and it seems to actually lower blood sugar. Cool! Where do I get some?! It’s a great podcast if you want to have a listen. They delve into everything from sleep deprivation to his experiences working in the US medical system to career changes.
