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.  Or drizzle the syrup over sorbet, ice cream, or cakes.  Use the syrup for baked ham or with roasted vegetables.

WHAT IS THE NUTRITIONAL VALUE OF KETO LOW-CARB “MAPLE SYRUP”?  

Monk Fruit Sweetener:

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. 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.

Health Benefits:

One of the main health benefits of monk fruit sweetener is that it is a zero-calorie sweetener. 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.

The sweetness in Keto Low-Carb Maple Syrup comes from the sweetener.  The taste of monk fruit sweetener is often described as being similar to sugar, but with a slightly fruity aftertaste. Some people also note that it has a subtle caramel-like flavor. Unlike sugar, monk fruit sweetener does not have a bitter or chemical aftertaste, making it a popular alternative for those who are looking to reduce their sugar intake without sacrificing taste.

Additionally, monk fruit sweetener is low in calories and does not raise blood sugar levels, making it a great option for those with diabetes or who are watching their weight.

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. 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 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:
ALCOHOL AND KETOSIS:

To support your Keto diet or low-carb lifestyle, opt for quality, non-alcoholic wines that are low-carb and low in sugar. Additionally, alcohol does not align with a keto diet or low-carb lifestyle. Moreover, your liver processes alcohol before nutrients, pausing ketone creation and slowing the ketosis process. Furthermore, your body will metabolize alcohol as fuel before utilizing food, which can decelerate fat burning and may lead to the storage of carbs, fat, and protein as excess body fat. Moreover, alcohol consumption stimulates the appetite, potentially causing overeating.

ALCOHOL AND HEALTH:

Did you know that when you consume alcohol, your liver has to work extra hard to break it down? This can result in damage to your liver. Furthermore, it can elevate your risk of health issues such as inflammation and cancer, particularly with heavy consumption. Additionally, alcohol can disrupt your blood sugar levels, leaving you feeling dehydrated and disrupting your body’s normal functions.

NON-ALCOHOLIC WINE AND HEALTH BENEFITS:

Non-alcoholic wines with minimal carbs and sugar are advantageous for your health. They not only aid in weight management, blood sugar control, and hydration but also contain essential nutrients and antioxidants from grapes that can decrease your risk of health conditions like heart disease. Consequently, since they lack alcohol, they’re ideal for socializing without any adverse effects, promoting feelings of happiness and reduced stress.

CAN I MAKE THIS SYRP 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.

HOW DO YOU PREPARE KETO LOW-CARB “MAPLE SYRUP”?

Place ½ cup of the warm water in a small bowl and add the xanthan gum. Whisk quickly and continuously until thickened and well blended.

 

Add the rest of the water (1.5 cups) and the sweetener to a saucepan.  Simmer on low over medium heat until the erythritol dissolves.  Whisk quickly in the xanthan gum mixture until completely blended and smooth.  Make sure the temp is low.  Otherwise, the xanthan gum may clump.  Remove the syrup mixture from the heat and stir in the maple and vanilla extracts.

 

Pour into sterilized glass.  When cool refrigerate.  Use as desired.
