D-Psicose protects and preserves pancreatic β-islets through the maintenance of hyperglycemia and by the prevention of fat accumulation in Otsuka Long-Evans Tokushima Fatty rats.
D-Psicose has been used in a study to assess the bioconversion of D-fructose to D-allose. It has also been used in a study that investigated the characteristics and antioxidant activity of maillard reaction products.

Rare sugar D-psicose has cropped up as a non-toxic and effective compound to protect and preserve pancreatic β-islets in the growing type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) rats through the regulation of glucose and fat metabolism. The present study was undertaken

D-psicose has been implicated in glycemic control in recent animal and human studies. In this study, the effects of D-psicose on glycemic responses, insulin release, and lipid profiles were compared with those of D-glucose and D-fructose in a genetic diabetes
The gut microbiota has been shown to be involved in the development and severity of type 2 diabetes. The aim of the present study was to test the effect of 4-week functional food ingredient feeding, alone or in combination, on
The scarcity, richness, and other important physiological functions of D-psicose make it crucial to increase the yield of D-psicose. The production of D-psicose can be accomplished by D-psicose 3-epimerase (DPEase) from Clostridium bolteae (CbDPEase) catalyzing the substrate D-fructose. Although the

D-Psicose is a hexoketose monosaccharide sweetener, which is a C-3 epimer of D-fructose and is rarely found in nature. It has 70 % relative sweetness but 0.3 % energy of sucrose, and is suggested as an ideal sucrose substitute for
