When I worked at an assisted living home I used suugar free pancake syrup. It was the only poduct in the pantry there that had similar properties to corn syrup for recipes.

That is a good idea...I wonder if I made my husband's pecan pie with that if he would notice...he's not the diabetic in the family. LOL

Gabby your husband will not know us less you tell him. Now he may say something about this is different & all you have to say is yes I changed up the recipe. You will not be lying & you will be well in program of a healthier eating regiment for all.

I may have to add that to my list of "secret hidden foods" on him. I already work in spinach, cottage cheese and a few other of his "no touch" foods. LOL. Am I sneaky or what?

Are you looking for a replacement in a recipe or just in general?

If you want to replace it in a recipe you could use amber agave or raw agave with some molasses. You might also use honey. But just so you know, both of these still have high carbs in them.

If you are looking to replace it in foods that you are finding that it is in, then I say just don't buy those foods. HFCS is one of the main culprits in many health issues. I do not eat foods with it in the ingredients, and you will be amazed at how many foods have it in there. So read your labels.

Here are a couple of videos that talk about it.

Organic Brown Rice syrup is a healthier option but still should be used with caution because it can cause spikes it metabolizes slowly but does have calories and carbohydrates.
