Thread: Best Sugarless Syrup?

    Default Best Sugarless Syrup?

    Do you have a suggestion for the best sugarless syrup for pancakes?
    Imitation flavor maple syrups I've tried are terrible. The Smucker's non
    designated flavor is even worse..
    TIA,

    Ed

    There is none. Even the sugar ones suck compared to real maple syrup (but
    can be tolerable), but the imitation stuff is horrid.

    James likes the stuff from Costco, but we broke the bottle cap and I
    poured it into a jar, so I'll have to check the brand next time we're there.

    Just buy the real thing and use it sparingly. The substitutes are
    awful and a waste of money.

    If you have kids using the stuff....well, I can see why you don't
    wanna use the real thing, the way they pour on a huge puddle and leave
    half of it. Maybe some parents out there have a solution?

    I mix my maple syrup with applesauce, or pureed strawberries -
    anything to stretch the syrup and cut some calories.

    Agreed. If you have to go sugar free, look to make the pancake more
    flavorful some other way. If you just have a misguided sugar phobia such
    as the folks afraid of refined sugar, realize that real maple syrup is
    not refined and has no refined sugar added, it is 100% boiled tree sap.

    That won't work for a diabetic. They are pushing it with the carbs in
    the pancakes. Adding real syrup would probably mean one less pancake in
    an already small serving.

    DH has tried many of them and likes Carey's best. He says it has the
    most mapely flavor.

    BTW, Maple Grove Farms makes a "sugar-free" pancake mix that is also
    very low in carbs. It makes doughy pancakes, but we like them.

    I like Carey's. It tastes mapley, has a nice consistency. It has aspartame,
    which I try to avoid, but I don't have pancakes that often. Log Cabin
    really, really sucks.

    I use the Log Cabin Sugar Free, made with Splenda, and find it acceptable.
    Of course, I find Log Cabin acceptable, while others may not.

    To me, the sugar free LC does not taste of anything like maple.

    You are absolutely correct, nor does original LC. However, as I read it,
    maple was not a requirement, only an observation that imitation maple syrups
    tasted terrible. I believe if the requirement is for maple flavor, real
    maple syrup is the only product that will satisfy. If, however, the OPs
    quest is as stated ("the best sugarless syrup for pancakes"), LC Sugar Free
    is as good as it gets.

    I had no idea original LC did not taste like maple! All that outrage wasted!

    Try Casey's some time, if you feel like it. I would be interested in knowing
    what you think about it.

    That was supposed to be "Carey's." It does have a maple flavor, to my taste.

    Most low carbers I know swear by DaVinci brand.
    I've never tried it personally. I feel it's just better to use very,
    very small amounts of the real stuff, diluted if you need/want to use
    more. That won't work for some people tho'.

    I've not eaten anything requiring syrup now for at least the past 7 or 8
    years.

    Diluting is a very good idea. I have always assumed that pure maple syrup
    had a very high glycemic index. It is about 50, which is acceptable for
    dealing with the metabolic syndrome[FBS 100-110]. Diluting a "nontaste zero
    sugar" half with maple syrup would give you something acceptable and with a
    low glycemic index of 25. That's very acceptable.

    I don't recall seeing Casey's offered in the stores I frequent; but will
    look next time.

    I do keep a small jar of real maple syrup on hand for the rare occasion a
    substitute just won't do. It's so tasty, I don't mind the limited serving
    size I must abide by.

    OK, now I know of it. I have tried Carey's in the past and liked it.
    Sadly, it isn't carried in the store I shop regularly; I'll try to remember
    to look next time shop a different store.

    About the Log Cabin--as I recall, it almost had a lemony flavor, does it to
    you? My English aunt was telling me that the custom there growing up was to
    have butter, sugar, and lemon juice on pancakes. Sounds good to me.

    Yeah, there is nothing like real maple. Now I am going to have to get some.
    I still really like Krusteaz whole wheat pancake mix, made thin, to produce
    light, crispy-edged thin pancakes.

    I barely noticed the lemon; but, having it pointed out, you are right, it
    is there. I just checked the bottle and found it has citric acid as a
    preservative; I suppose they needed to do something to replace the
    preservative power of the missing sugar.
