Clarks Original Maple Syrup, is the UK’s top retailing maple syrup.
What's different about it? Well, it is a special lower sugar alternative to traditional syrups.
It can be used in cooking, used in making really delicious smoothies, adding to your morning porridge and dripped and drizzled all over your pancakes.
It is a clever blend of pure maple syrup (No.1 medium) from Quebec, Canada, plus carob fruit syrup from the Mediterranean.
Why? Because carob fruit syrup has a low glycemic index, and this Clarks Original blend product has an impressive 45% less sugar per 100g than white sugar (RRP £1.98, 180ml).
It’s available in major supermarkets like Asda, Tesco and Sainsbury's.
For those who are not needing to keep a close eye on their glycemic index or blood sugar levels, there is still Clarks No.1 Medium Maple Syrup, which is harvested from the start of the second half of the season, this pure premium blend is considered the ‘King’ of maple syrup.
It's perfect for pouring over pancakes, bacon or cereal. It should cost you £3.40, fror 180ml in Sainsbury's. Also available in 500ml containers.
