KETO LOW-CARB “MAPLE SYRUP” (HEART HEALTHY)
I cannot live without my Keto Low-Carb “Maple Syrup!” You can purchase premade Keto Maple Syrup but it’s not quite the same. After researching several blogs, I prepared a version of this maple syrup. It’s super easy to prepare.
Sugar-free “maple syrup” is damn delicious! The syrup can be utilized in a variety of recipes for dessert and alcoholic cocktails. Sweeten your homemade ice tea or lemonade with this syrup.

WHAT IS THE NUTRITIONAL VALUE OF KETO LOW-CARB “MAPLE SYRUP”?
The nutritional value of this Keto Low-Carb Maple Syrup comes from Monk Fruit sweetener.
Monk fruit sweetener is a natural sweetener that is derived from the monk fruit, a small green fruit that grows in Southeast Asia. It is becoming increasingly popular as a sugar substitute because it is much sweeter than sugar, yet has no calories, no carbohydrates, and does not raise blood sugar levels. In terms of nutritional value, monk fruit sweetener contains antioxidants called mogrosides, which have been shown to have anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer properties. It also contains small amounts of vitamins and minerals, such as vitamin C, calcium, and potassium, although these are present in amounts too small to make a significant contribution to one’s daily nutrient needs. It is important to note that while monk fruit sweetener is a healthier alternative to sugar, it should still be consumed in moderation as part of a balanced diet. It is also important to choose a brand that does not contain any added sugars or artificial ingredients.
Monk fruit sweetener is a natural sweetener that is derived from the monk fruit, which is a small green gourd that is native to southern China. It has become a popular alternative to sugar and artificial sweeteners because it is low in calories and does not raise blood sugar levels.

This means that it does not contribute to weight gain or obesity, which are risk factors for many chronic diseases such as heart disease, diabetes, and cancer. Additionally, monk fruit sweetener does not raise blood sugar levels, making it a good option for people with diabetes or anyone who wants to avoid spikes in blood sugar levels.
Another health benefit of monk fruit sweetener is that it is a natural sweetener. Unlike artificial sweeteners, which are made from chemicals, monk fruit sweetener is made from the juice of the monk fruit. It does not contain any artificial ingredients, preservatives, or additives, making it a healthier option for people who are concerned about the ingredients in their food.
In conclusion, monk fruit sweetener is a healthy alternative to sugar and artificial sweeteners. It is low in calories, does not raise blood sugar levels, and is a natural sweetener. If you are looking for a healthier way to sweeten your food and drinks, monk fruit sweetener is definitely worth considering.

WHAT WINE HARMONIZES WITH KETO LOW-CARB “MAPLE SYRUP?
Keto Low-Carb Maple Syrup can be used as a flavoring agent in a variety of dishes and desserts. So to pair a wine with this condiment, you need to consider all the flavors in the dish. If the predominant taste sensation is sweetness, you will need a sweet wine.
In following a Keto diet or in living a low-carb lifestyle, we don’t want to use up carbs on a glass of wine, especially when we can enjoy zero carb wine! So you have a couple of options.
- Drink whatever you like and don’t worry about pairing the wine to the maple syrup inspired dish. Enjoy your wine the way you like it.
- Or, if you like to create harmony between the wine and the food, you’ll need some sweetness in the wine. Add a pinch of stevia or monk fruit to your glass of white wine. Choose a fruity white with this added sweetness to pair with the maple syrup inspired dish — again depending on the other flavors in the dish. So, you’ll have a wine with some sweetness to harmonize with the sweet maple flavor.
*Wine Tips: To support your Keto diet or low-carb lifestyle, choose low-carb, low-sugar, and low-alcohol wines that are free of additives and artificial coloring. Include your wine carb macros as part of your meal. Remember, your liver will process alcohol before nutrients, pausing ketone creation and slowing the ketosis process. Your body will also metabolize alcohol as fuel before using food. This can slow fat burning and may cause your body to store carbs, fat, and protein as excess body fat. Alcohol consumption also stimulates the appetite. So, drink low-sugar, low-carb, and low alcohol wines in moderation.

CAN I MAKE THIS SYRUP IN THE MICROWAVE?
Prepare this Keto Low-Carb Maple syrup on the stove. The microwave is not a good choice for this recipe as you want to control the temperature so that the xanthan gum does not clump.
WHY MAKE KETO LOW-CARB MAPLE SYRUP FROM SCRATCH?
Why make Keto Low-Carb Maple Syrup from scratch? Maple syrup is loaded with sugar. It has about 14 grams of sugar in a single tablespoon! That’s not Keto or low-carb! Store-bought versions of sugar-free maple syrup do not use real maple extract, so the flavour is not as authentic or tasty. They are also sweetened with aspartame or sucralose. You can sweeten your homemade syrup with whatever natural sweetener you prefer, such as erythritol, xylitol, or stevia.
