Since the ketogenic diet aims to get rid of carbohydrates from the body’s system, a sugar-free sweetener like FiberYum makes a good alternative ingredient. You get the same maple sweetness without the excess glucose.
The Ketogenic Diet
The general idea of a keto diet is to follow an eating routine that is very low in carbs so your body goes into a deficit and burns fat instead. This means limiting sugar intake as much as possible because sugar is a carb.
The key to including maple syrup with your keto diet is to know your net carbs level. But, if your net carbs are 20-30 g each day, it’s best to avoid the syrup completely; otherwise, take it in very small amounts.
