As seen in Woman’s World magazine! Maple syrup not only tastes great, it also helps prevent diabetes! Researchers at the University of Rhode Island report that antioxidant compounds found in the natural sweetener increase the sensitivity of fat cells to the blood sugar — regulating hormone insulin — reducing your risk of diabetes. Just be sure to reach for 100% pure maple syrup instead of overly processed wannabe syrups.
TIP: To replace white sugar with maple syrup in recipes, use 3/4 cup of syrup for every 1 cup of sugar called for.
