Walden has a 0 carb apple butter that is great on a pancake for a change. No sugar alcohol.

I'm pretty sure I don't even WANNA know how they do it - lol!

As already stated, many sugar alcohols can spike, others have a pretty good reputation for not spiking. I do really well with erythritol & I can use xylitol too, but don't keep it around much because of its toxicity for dogs.

So yeah, be careful about deducting the sugar alcohol numbers - they might come back to bite.

Pat, glad someone is making my pancakes, but sorry that happened ... I can't eat Cary's Crap OR Walden's!

Since the topic of regulation always raises hackles, though, I DO think we need to regulate labeling nad use of sugar alcohols! For me maltitol is out and out EVIL.

My own latest idiocy: My husband bought a generic container of "rich, creamy sour cream" ... which, it turned out, was thickened with CORNSTARCH!???

You guys are all bursting my little bubble here. I use Cary's Sugar Free Maple Syrup because it is the only one I have found that uses Aspartame rather than Sorbitol, Maltitol, Xyletol, or any other -tol that is a sugar alcohol. I used to use Log Cabin's sugar free, and would always get terrible cramping and frequent bathroom visits until I realized it was the sorbitol. I use the Cary's very sparingly (never liked alot of syrup on my pancakes anyway), and I always eat with eggs and bacon, or sausage.

I would love to be able to use the Torini or Davinci, but again, sorbitol. Can't use it at all! Might taste wonderful, but I can't afford the time to spend in the bathroom afterwards

As we always say...YMMV? I have a friend who uses chocolate w/sorbitol as her laxative...does nothing for me!

But you WERE aware of the carb content, right? Pat got blindsided - I'm assuming you realized it wasn't carb-free.

My bottle says it DOES contain sorbitol as well as aspartame, but maybe they've changed their formula since I bought this.

To the best of my knowledge, only xylitol is toxic to dogs. Even Snopes sez so - everybody trusts Snopes, don't they?

Thanks Shanny -- Mental note to myself never teach the pooch how to blow bubbles!

Thanks again, Bman

Naynay, my new bottle contains both sorbitol and aspartame and the sorbitol is listed as the second ingredient right after water and the aspartame is down lower in the list indicating that it is less.

Sorry, bubble busting is not my favorite sport!
