    Why don't you just use honey? There is nothing magical about a sugar syrup made from fruit (apart from the ridiculous price). At least honey has some anecdotal evidence behind its benefits.

    Just a word of advice..... if you shape your diet around scientific studies, there will be exactly no foods you can eat that won't harm you in some way. Our bodies can deal with small amounts of toxins, maybe not the amount the SAD throws at it, but the occasional honey or odd concoction of fruit sugars is probably no worse than the toxins accumulated in the flesh of meats.
    I don't recall any good data that says nuts, fruits, vegetables or fish are harmful to eat.

        LOL, I've read doom like articles on all of that stuff- I believe, frutose in fruits, some veggies aren't ideal for some people, and of course, toxic fish. Not that I get bothered.

          Completely agree, everday i stumble upon a study which shows how harmful a part of my diet is, the list is endless.

            Extracts of food...

            Consider that only the poorest quality "food" is used in most processed food production, and any process that fractionates "food" into extracted parts of it, has removed the built-in balance of it. Fruit sugar without the fibre hits your system really hard.

            I'd choose less processed options, because seriously, I don't want low-quality fruit (raised with pesticides, maybe? infested with mold, spores, or bugs, maybe?) sugar syrup. I'd use maple syrup or honey.

              I agree with what your saying, but the syrup is organic and i always eat it with some fibre.

                  People get paranoid, but ultimately, you have to find your balance.

                  A lot depends on what your goals are, how clean you need to eat.
