Comments about Smucker's Sugar Free Syrup:
Long gone are the days when I could eat just anything (and almost everything) without worrying about catastrophic dietary ramifications. Nowadays I have to entertain at least a passing concern about calories and fat. Alas, I still like luscious syrups poured over hot breakfast treats so I was overjoyed to find ***Smucker's Sugar Free Syrup***. I figured that -- not only was this stuff sugar free -- but it would taste good too. And I was right, ***Smucker's Sugar Free Syrup ***is just lip-smacking delicious.
**WHAT THIS IS:**
***Smucker's Sugar Free Syrup ***is a little thicker than the other brand which I had been using and its mapley flavor is enhanced by a light buttery taste. You could use this over pancakes or waffles with no added butter or other spread. There is no aftertaste that I could detect .
Two teaspoons of ***Smucker's Sugar Free Syrup ***is considered to be a single serving which contains 20 calories, zero fats of any kind, 150 mg. Sodium, 8 grams Total Carbs, zero Sugars and Protein, and 7 grams Sugar Alcohol. ***Smucker's Sugar Free Syrup ***contains water, Sorbitol, and 2% or less of a blizzard of other things including Sucralose. **That's was the problem.**
**THE BAD NEWS:**
Sorbitol and Sucralose are excellent sweeteners but products containing Sorbitol have long carried a warning on them that too much could have a "possible laxative effect." The problem is that -- for some of us -- it doesn't take very much for that to happen. Apparently, some of us are especially sensitive to artificial sweeteners because eating a moderate amount of ***Smucker's Sugar Free Syrup ***really upset me and aggravated my digestive tract. I will spare you the graphic details but I was really sick for a while. I hoped that it wasn't the syrup which was making me sick but after waiting a few days and trying it again, I had another adverse experience.
Sometimes it's hard to decide whether to recommend something or not. ***Smucker's Sugar Free Syrup ***tasted delicious but apparently it can cause serious digestive problems for some people. Since that is the case I can't take the responsibility for recommending it. It seems to me that it is safer in the long run to just eat the regular syrup in modification and as an occasional treat.
