8 carbs in sugar free pancacke syrup?

Hi All:
I just happened to look at my sugar free pancake syrup and noticed it at 8g of carbs - no sugar but sugar alcohol of 7g? Will this spike your blood sugar and I guess i cannot be considered low carb...confused.

WOE: moderate carbs
Well, it's better than 39 g of carbs. I don't know what brand you have, but I will say that if you want syrup for pancakes, try Walden Farms syrup. It's 0-0-0 everything. It's fairly thick, and I like to heat mine a little in the micro.

Click where it says Walden Farms and scroll all the way down to pancake syrup. The chocolate syrup is good too!

The sugar alcohol are counted as carbs. Depending on the brand, ingredients may include malitol, sorbitol, and/or glycerin. Whether or how much you subtract these from your total carb count to get net carbs depends on your personal WOE. I will eat Walden Farms pancake syrup, but I generally avoid the Sugar-Free Smucker's which I buy for my son.
