Honey vs. Maple Syrup


Which sweetener do you think is “better”? I’m sure there are many different ways you could answer that, but when I look at them I see one as High FODMAP and one as LOW FODMAP.

If you have IBS, certain High FODMAP foods can create havoc in your body. For instance…honey!

Honey is high in a carbohydrate called fructose, which some people have problems absorbing. One simple swap is to use maple syrup instead. •

Again, I’m sure there’s a lot of different ways you could answer which one of these is better or “healthier” but from an IBS perspective I’d recommend swapping out honey for a few weeks to see how you feel!

Have you ever noticed that certain sweeteners cause problems for you? Tell me below!
