I've read in recipes that "Log Cabin" maple syrup is okay. What's the difference between the maple syrups?

I have Aunt Jamima and the ingredient list looks ok. I was planning on having some gluten free pancakes tomorrow with it - I hope it's ok!

Some have, actaully many have gluten in them. If its 100% pure maple syrup it should be fine. Aslo if you have a kroger near you all Kroger storebrand maple syurps are gluten-free. I never check Log Cabin or Aunt Jamima but I think I read that only some of thier varities are safe.

Be careful--Log Cabin Syrups are NOT gluten-free, with the exception of their Log Cabin Country Kitchen Syrup. Aunt Jemima syrups are gluten-free.

Thanks so much! The recipe that I got the Log Cabin syrup from was a gluten-free recipe! Argh! I'm still very new at this so I have much to learn. Y'all's input was very helpful...I shall pick-up different maple syrup on my next shopping trip.

I use real maple syrup, but I recently confirmed with Aldi's that their Aunt Maple's Original Syrup is gluten free.

A lot of the "maple syrups" are maple flavored or contain some maple syrup in them. I prefer 100% maple syrup, which is gluten-free.

So is it the maple flavoring that is the gluten-culprit with maple syrups? If so, why?

The problem with the Log Cabin, in particular, is that they use barley in the processing.

Pure maple syrup is absolutely gluten-free, since is has only one ingredient: sap. Okay, that doesn't sound so good, but the sugar maple is tapped for its sap during the spring season when days are warm and nights are cold, which results in a high volume of sap which contains lots of sugar. It is boiled down to remove much of the water leaving the thick, sweet liquid.

Maple flavored syrup is an attempt to duplicate this. It uses various flavoring, sweetening and thickening agents, and many of these are potential gluten sources. It does not have to be the flavoring. Many flavored syrups are gluten-free, but you have to check. As Vincent said, Kroger house brand syrups are gluten-free.

I think it does sound better to say I like pure maple syrup than I like tree sap!!

Here's a recipe that uses pure maple syrup, as usual, no measurements from me, sorry, I just pour! I make salad dressing with olive oil, maple syrup (about the same amount as the oil), a little less lemon juice, some chopped garlic, a little gluten-free mustard and salt. I make it right in the bottom of the salad bowl before I toss the lettuce into it. It makes even the pickiest eaters eat their salad!

I just bought Vermont Maid Syrup and it says Gluten free on the package. The only thing is, the ingredients list malt. I emailed the company to find out what's up.

I hate to confess, I did kind of like the taste of all those fakey syrups--but one look at the ingredient list, and I will NEVER buy them again. They all use high-fructose corn syrup, which seems to leave me hungrier than when I started to eat, and makes me thirsty all day, and is just generally EVIL. I refuse to EVER feed them to my kids.

Luckily, I think real maple syrup does taste even better than fakey syrup. You can buy it quite inexpensively at Costco or Sam's Club.
