So it's spring water sweetened with a sugar alcohol with "natural maple flavor" added back in and thickened with xanthan gum...sounds like a fantastic recipe for the shits. I think I'd rather just eat organic maple syrup or raw honey sparingly than this "healthy alternative" frankenfood. A person with a normal metabolism that exercises regularly is not going to see any ill effect from 1-2 tablespoons of organic maple syrup. That's like eating an apple, which is easy for your liver to handle. Now, if you're pouring it on by the 1/2 cup...
Are you diabetic or very overweight? If not, why the carb phobia to normal organic maple syrup? These food substitutes are almost always worse than the food you're trying to avoid. If you're either diabetic or overweight, you're best off just skipping it entirely than trying to create fake "pancake and syrup" substitutes.
