Maple Syrup: Sugar Free or Regular?
Skip: Sugar Free
“Go regular,” Jalai says. “The light or sugar-free versions are usually full of sugar alcohols like Malitol, which can wreak havoc on your digestive system.” Plus, pure maple syrup contains nutrients like manganese, riboflavin (B12), and zinc, making it a pretty nutritional sugar alternative. (But be sure to look for “real maple syrup” on the label, pancake syrups aren’t the same and most use corn syrup—not maple- for flavoring).
