Fruit curds are the fanciest category of fruit spreads and toppings. Traditionally, fruit curds are served alongside scones at afternoon tea. Today, home and commercial bakers use fruit curd as a filling for cakes, cupcakes, pastries and tarts. Fruit curds differ from most jams, pie fillings, and custards in that they contain a higher proportion of juice, less sugar, and are made with butter and eggs for a smooth and creamy texture.

Calculating Net Carbs When Allulose is an Ingredient:
Allulose is a pretty special sugar, in fact, it was the first sugar the FDA allowed to not be included as part of the total or added sugars declarations on nutrition labels. This also makes the net carb calculation using the nutrition label a confusing. That is why The Unsweetened Tooth employs an expert, third-party nutrition lab to analyze, calculate nutrition and produce our nutrition labels.
In the case of The Unsweetened Tooth Lemon Curd, the calculation for net carbs would be as follows:
6g total carbohydrates - 0g fiber - 5g allulose = 1 net carb per serving
On April 17, 2019 the FDA issued guidance on the labeling of allulose, a sweetener that may be used as a substitute for certain sugars in foods, so that the information presented on Nutrition and Supplement Facts labels appropriately represents its unique properties. Allulose is different from other sugars in that it is not metabolized by the human body in the same way as table sugar. It has fewer calories, produces only negligible increases in blood glucose or insulin levels, and does not promote dental decay. As such, the FDA issued guidance stating that they intend to exercise enforcement discretion to allow allulose to be excluded from the total and added sugars declarations on the Nutrition Facts and Supplement Facts labels when allulose is used as an ingredient. Allulose will still count towards the caloric value of the food on the label – but the guidance document issued today states our intent to exercise enforcement discretion to allow the use of a revised, lower calorie count. As with other ingredients, allulose must still be declared in the ingredient list. This is the first time the FDA has stated its intent to allow a sugar to not be included as part of the total or added sugars declarations on labels.
