Hi there eeyore..

I too am conflicted my the information out there.

One thing I do know, and this is for me only, I cannot use any substitute for real sugar.

I get terrific headaches when I do ... and I listen to my body.

So with that, I limit my add on sugar intake and count calories.

Hope you find your own answers.

A few more: stevia (zero calories; naturally from a leaf in South America; make sure the only ingredient is stevia, no fillers), agave nectar (lower in calories than sugar; low glycemic index making it suitable for diabetics; comes from a cactus flower), xylitol (zero calories; comes from nature as well; health benefits include improving teeth and fighting cavities, helping with ear and sinus infections).

Hi Jemimah, not just maple syrup, but maple sugar (different than brown sugar)
