Default Allulose

Hello! Does anyone have any experience with Allulose? It is a sweetener but not a sugar alcohol. I think it's made from fructose, I don't think that's good.
I'm trying to talk myself down from buying some chocolate chips made with Allulose.

I ran across this as an ingredient in a recipe just a few days ago. Looked it up. What stopped me from wanting to try it was that it can cause gastro distress - same kind of thing that malatol and it's kind do. Definitely a deal breaker for me.

I have no personal experience with it and don't know much about it. I've read it is one of several sugars that make up what we call sugar and that it is naturally occurring but in very small quantities in dried fruits (ie raisins and figs) and molasses and maple syrup. One website I saw mentioned over 56 grams in a day could cause digestive issues, but I'm sure the YMMV rule applies. Another say a couple of producers use non-GMO corn for their source. Another website says a new company has found a new method of mass production of it from sugar beets. They don't say how how they do it but that is what I'd be concerned about initially.

Think I've had this since 2003. Told I was Type 2 lean on 2/13/12.
