sugar-free?, Guest twink.2

As a scientist I find the misunderstandings about sugars frustrating. This recipe is a good example. What exactly makes maple syrup sweet? The answer is mainly sucrose. What is sucrose? ""Regular"" sugar. The sugar you buy in the supermarket is close to pure sucrose. Maple syrup is close to 50% sucrose. Of course there is the other 50% and maple syrup has some high levels of minerals, antioxidants, etc. I like maple syrup, I eat maple syrup but I don't fool myself that it is sugar free.
