Posted by Media Release Agency on 5th November 2020

Maple syrup is no longer off the menu for those looking to eat more cleanly. Perfect on protein pancakes or in healthier twists on desserts, Lakanto Monkfruit Maple Flavoured Syrup is naturally sweet, containing just two net carbs and 24 calories per 30mL serve.

On average, Maple Flavoured Syrup contains 84 calories per 30ml serve, meaning that Lakanto’s Monkfruit Maple Flavoured Syrup has 60 fewer calories per serve.  This makes it suitable for diabetics and healthy eaters alike to enjoy the sweetness of syrup without spiking their glycemic index.

TV Host, bestselling cookbook author, functional nutritionist, trainer and Lakanto ambassador, Luke Hines says, “You shouldn’t have to eliminate sweet treats or compromise on taste to live healthily, even if you are on a diabetic or on ketogenic and low carb diets.

Lakanto’s Monkfruit Maple Flavoured Syrup acts just like any other wet sugar when cooked, meaning it can be used as a direct 1:1 replacement in baking or hot drinks. There’s also no need to worry about the taste, as Monkfruit’s natural sweetness has a similar flavour profile to sugar, unlike many artificial sweeteners. It is also perfect for a range of diets and requirements including keto, gluten free, paleo, plant-based, vegan, low carb, low sugar and non-GMO.

“The Lakanto Monkfruit Maple Flavoured Syrup lets me bake and create my favourite sweet treats without compromising my health. It’s the perfect low calorie and low glycemic replacement for other wet sugars like honey or rice malt syrup,” he says.

Originally cultivated by Buddhist monks in east Asia for its sweetness and apparent healing properties, the monk fruit has been used to create a 100% natural alternative to sugar and is used exclusively in Lakanto’s Monkfruit Maple Flavoured Syrup without the addition of extra sugars.

With a mantra of being #ResponsiblySweet, all Lakanto products are made using Monkfruit that is grown using the same ancient, traditional methods used by the monks that give the fruit its name. It processes the fruit using cold water extraction at its zero-emissions plant. Lakanto only uses high purity monk fruit extract and non-GMO erythritol to create its monkfruit sweetener.

Lakanto’s Maple Flavoured Syrup with Monkfruit Sweetener 375mL is available for RRP $14.95 in the sugar aisle in over 2,500 outlets nationwide including Woolworths and leading Independent Supermarket’s and Health Food stores. For additional information visit
