    Can anybody look at this and tell me how healthy they think it is? It seems to be the best option I've found so far

    Buy Nature's Hollow Syrup Maple from Low Carb Canada at lowcarbcanada.ca

    Put that on low carb pancakes. Serve with sugar-free bread toast and splenda sweetend jelly. Wash it down with low fat sugar-free milk. Yum!

    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.

    Don't put your trust in anyone on this forum, including me. You are the key to your own success.

    Use real maple syrup and sweeten your pancakes or whatever with bananas.

    I would just use real maple syrup. I use a bit in my whipping cream and here and there for other things. A little goes a long ways. 1/2 TBS is more than enough to add a bit of yummy flavor to things. I am not afraid of a little sugar though.
