The other month, Predator Nutrition opened their flagship store at The Light in Leeds and I couldn’t wait to see what ‘goodies’ they had! From Quest Bars (LOVE them.. check out my review HERE!) to Brazil Nut Butter, they have it.. America eat your heart out (they always have the best health foods.. in my opinion!!).
Anyway, on the subject of ‘American foods’, the product that I was most interested in was their Calorie Free Syrup from Walden Farms. Predator Nutrition kindly sent me the Pancake Syrup and Strawberry Syrup to try and I couldn’t wait to blog about them – just because I have never heard of calorie free syrups before!
The syrups in question contain zero calories, which means an average saving of 220 calories per serving compared to regular pancake syrup! The range has no carbs, sugars, gluten or fat and so in my opinion, is perfect if you are trying to lose weight/maintain a healthy weight and still add a little sweetness into your diet! I have a sweet tooth, and found that these hit the spot, without rotting my teeth or giving me a sugar rush (!).
How are the syrups calorie free you ask?! Well, the ingredients of the pancake syrup are: Triple Filtered Purified Water,Maple Flavour, Natural Flavors, Cellulose Gum (Thickener), Salt, Sucralose (Sweetener), Lactic Acid (Preservative), Sodium Benzoate (Preservative).
How can you use the calorie-free syrups?
I personally like the syrups:
- Drizzled on pancakes (naturally!)
- Poured over Greek yoghurt with berries & granola (SO good!!)
- Over chopped fruit.
- On ice-cream (naughty!) – everything is allowed in the 80/20 rule 😉
- In baking instead of maple syrup or honey – check out my peanut butter cookies for inspiration!
Where can you buy the syrups?
- Salad Dressings
- BBQ Sauce
- Fruit Dips
- Chocolate Peanut Spread (I NEED TO TRY THIS!!)
- Seafood Sauce
- Crisp/Nacho Dips
- Pasta Sauce
I cannot tell you about how excited I am about this discovery, do let me know your thoughts!
