While natural, these syrups are in fact full of sugar, have low nutritional value and sometimes contain a high level of fructose. None of these sugar substitutes are used in this book. Instead the recipes are sweetened with fresh and dry fruit.With stylish design and photography, sugar-free food has never looked so enticing!
