100% pure maple syrups normally start around £7. The cheaper end of the market is normally crowded by corn syrup concoctions @ £2.99 this is great.

The thing is this is naturally sweet, it's like saying don't eat strawberries because they've got natural fructose sugars in them.

Yes, but it's rarely in store. Hence the nod to stock up.

I often buy my honey from Aldi and can't fail to notice the Maple syrup as it is not far from the honeys section, it seems to be always there and at this price. The only one that came close to that price was from Asda, some special deal early last year that worked out a couple of pence per 100ml cheaper, so I stocked up then.

Interesting as it never seems to be out of stock locally. What is rarer than hen's teeth is finding it on offer, which happens what seems like once per year when it drops by 50p or so. Can't remember exactly how much the drop is because it's such a long time since the last one.:D:D:D

All of you that are either for or against "sugars", please do some research as it's not as simple as it might at first appear. There is a world of difference between pure white sugar as extolled by the big sugar companies (pure and white it may be but that's its problem, it's been totally cleansed of anything that might be good for a body) and natural sugars such as is found in trees like the Maple and the Birch.

Whilst I would suggest that natural sugar, like Maple Syrup, is much better for you, it is still largely empty calories and so should be consumed in moderation.

The one series of sweeteners that I choose to avoid, in addition to the pure white stuff, is the artificial ones. Check out the delights of Aspartame and Glucose-Fructose Syrup but please make sure what you read is about Glucose-Fructose Syrup aka High Fructose Corn Syrup as Glucose and Fructose, as separate entities are not the same thing at all.

Reality check - this works out at £1.19 per 100gm Asda's own 'chosen by you pure Canadian maple syrup' at £3.48 for 330gm works out at £1.05 per 100gm so would definitely be the best deal???!!

Is that Grade B (Medium) like Aldi's or the inferior Grade A?

I usually buy the Costco 1L for about £9 in store (you can also get it delivered online for £12 or £12.60 for non members). Not voting either way as its cheaper than the normal supermarket retail prices, but not tempting me to take a trip to Aldi.

The Costco stuff is great. Shame it's always sold out when I try pick some up.

Many of the "bargains" that people think they are getting at Aldi/Lidl can be exposed in the same way as this.
Aldi and Lidl can be great for some things, but you need to be really careful how you shop.

The thing is this is naturally sweet, it's like saying don't eat strawberries because they've got natural fructose sugars in them.

The difference of course is that strawberries are only 5% sugar and have multiple nutritional benefits whereas this syrup is around 70% with no nutritional benefits.

Still, all things in moderation and all that. I likes a bit of syrup on my pancakes occasionally too.

Cheers OP. How's this compare to the Lidl maple syrup?
Lidl one is stated as organic, but doesn't state that it's 100% pure or the grade.
Little bit more expensive too.

As for sugar, it's the highly refined stuff and high fructose corn syrup already mentioned in processed foods that it's best to avoid.

The average person could probably have a whole bottle of this a week/fortnight and still consume less sugar if certain common processed foods are avoided.

Maple syrup is meant to have health benefits.

What's the sugar content in this one?

Lidl one seems high - 87.2% carbs, 81.5% of which sugars.
Should be more like 67% carbs, 60% sugar.

Lidl one seems a bit dodgy then.

Just looked at some others, and Buckwud is:
Carbohydrate 67.0g
of which sugars 64.0g

Asda's is:
Carbohydrate 68.0g
of which sugars 63.0g

Waitrose Amber No. 2 and Medium No. 1
Carbohydrate 63.0g
of which sugars 61.5g

Asda's doesn't state grade or purity.

Waitrose Amber No. 2 looks best.
Lowest sugar and likely fullest flavour.

Asda's seems like a good cheaper alternative.

If the sugar content in the Aldi one is reasonable, may be a good choice.

Annoyingly they don't seem to list it online.
Anyone got a bottle to hand?

I thought this stuff was sold by volume and not mass? 330gm is not equal to 330ml of volume unless it's water.

Alarming number of people who seem to think this is healthier than sugar! People do the same with honey. Sucrose is sucrose, doesn't matter about the form.

Maple syrup does have trace quantities of vitamins and minerals, but the amount you would have to eat to benefit from those would do far more harm to you than good.

It's a tasty replacement for regular table sugar, but that's all. Don't buy this if you think it's somehow healthier than regular sugar.

250ml of maple syrup is equal to 334gm apparently. So it seems Aldi is better value.

Maple syrup does have trace quantities of vitamins and minerals, but the amount you would have to eat to benefit from those would do far more harm to you than good.
It's a tasty replacement for regular table sugar, but that's all. Don't buy this if you think it's somehow healthier than regular sugar.

Firstly, the good stuff is only around 60% sugar.
So if using it at the same volume, you're consuming less sugar, almost half.

Secondly, obviously if you have a certain amount of unrefined sugar vs refined sugar, at the same quantity, then the unrefined will still be healthier - even if you want to say the difference is negligible, it's clearly not going to be healthier having the refined sugar.

It's also tastier.

Honey can have soothing properties. If you have a sore throat try having a teaspoon of sugar vs a teaspoon of honey and see which you prefer ;)

So yes, it is healthier than normal sugar if consumed at the same quantity (almost two measures of maple syrup vs one measure of table sugar). And obviously healthier if consumed at the same volume.

Obviously if people advocate consuming loads of it, then it wouldn't be. But given its cost, I doubt people would.
In fact, if you replaced normal sugar with this, you'd probably consume even less sugar.
So switching to maple sryup for coffee etc. could be a tasty and heathly switch to make.
