Sugar free syrup that’ll add sweetness to meals without the sugar (top 5 we’ve tried)

Published by Finn Hayden

When you're trying to cut down on sugar, you usually need to ditch your favourite foods for a bit. And for people with a sweet tooth, this can be really hard.

Luckily, there are lots of syrups out there which will add a nice bit of sweetness and flavour to your food without adding any sugar, usually because they're made with an alternative to sugar. We thought it would be useful to round up the best sugar free syrups that you can buy in the UK, let's get into it:

The Skinny Food Co Golden Syrup

We're really impressed with lots of the products from The Skinny Food Co brand, including the low sugar chocolate that we featured in a recent guide. But we have to say that this Golden Syrup from The Skinny Food Co might be our favourite product from the brand - made using sucralose, it has all the sweetness of normal golden syrup, just without any of the sugar.

Biotech USA Zero Syrup

This syrup has a lovely sweetness and works beautifully when it's slathered over things like pancakes (protein pancakes, obviously). We're impressed to see that the chocolate syrup from Biotech USA is made using real cocoa powder, which explains why it has such a lovely chocolatey flavour. Instead of using sugar, this syrup is made using a blend of sweeteners including erythritol, maltitols, and sucralose, so it still has a lovely sweetness. Learn more and buy it here -

This sugar free syrup from 6Pak Nutrition is made using sucralose instead of sugar, which works perfectly to keep it sweet. We tried and loved the vanilla flavour, which is made using real vanilla extract. And as well as containing zero sugar, this syrup is also totally free from calories. We were really impressed with this syrup, which tastes great drizzled over fruit. Learn more and buy it here -

Walden Farms

As well as being completely free from sugar, this syrup from Walden Farms is also free from fat, contains less than 1g of carbs, and contains zero calories. Despite this, we found that this syrup is full of flavour and actually really tasty. It's made using real caramel flavour and it also has a hint of vanilla which really comes through. This syrup is also vegan, gluten free, and is made using all natural colours. Learn more and buy it here -

Skinny Syrup Chocolate Fudge/Orange Chocolate

We loved the sugar free Golden Syrup from The Skinny Food Co, but coming in at a close second are the Chocolate Fudge and Orange Chocolate syrups from the brand. Both of these syrups are made using real cocoa powder, which really comes through in the taste. We also love that as well as being sugar free, they're also fat free and contain zero calories. If you love chocolate and find yourself really missing it after cutting sugar out of your diet, these syrups are for you. Learn more and buy them here -
