Sugar Alcohols (which are often used in products labeled sugar free) will raise blood sugar.
Sucralose is an artificial sweetener. The majority of ingested sucralose is not broken down by the body and therefore it is non-caloric. Sucralose is actually Splenda.... ADVERSE AFFECTS CAN ENLARGE THE LIVER AND KIDNEYS. Other reactions can include rash, muscle aches, reported cases of seizures, headaches, etc. Be careful with this product.
Note that artificial sweeteners are not a solution; they’re part of the problem as they mimic sugar so well that the body produces insulin to metabolize them and might even make you crave food. Some people report that aspartame triggers migraines
My endocrinoligist says sugar alcohols are a diabetics worst nightmare.
Not for me anytime.
Even Dr Mark Hyman Says "Stop confusing your body. If you have a desire for something sweet, have a little sugar, but stay away from “fake” foods. Researchers found that the total food eaten over 14 days dramatically increased in the artificial sweetener group — meaning that the artificial sweetener stimulated their appetite and made them eat more!"
"THERE’S NO DOUBT about it. Artificial sweeteners cause obesity"
Eliminate sugar and artificial sweeteners and your cravings will go away: Go cold turkey. If you are addicted to narcotics or alcohol you can’t simply just cut down. You have to stop for you brain to reset. Eliminate refined sugars, sodas, fruit juices, and artificial sweeteners from your diet. These are all drugs that will fuel cravings.
I dont care what SparkPeople says...I am listening to my doctor who is a specialist and glad that Dr. Mark Hyman confers.

I've never heard of this. The thing is though real maple syrup doesn't need sweetened. Aunt Jemima is not anything close to the real deal. The real stuff also tends to last longer because a little goes a long way.

I bought some maple syrup for my kids, it is something I've avoided since I started losing weight. I just assumed it was too many cals, too much sugar. Anyways, it's called Old Tyme, no sugar added. It's sweetened with sugar alcohols. If you're unfamilar with sugar alcohols here's a Spark article on them: http://www.sparkpeople.com/resource/nutrit ion_articles.asp?id=948
