I've seen posts about desserts w/ this ingredient listed and I've seen it listed as a no-no as well. What would you guys' opinion be on using granola that is sweetened w/ chicory root syrup??? Sugars are, if I remember correctly, 6g or 7g.

I was hoping maybe Zeff or Debbie would know something about it :shrug: What's the word on glycemic index? That's how I decided to experiment with palm sugar

I learn so much here :)
I honestly hadn't ever noticed chicory root syrup before.
I looked it up (http://www.healthcentral.com/diabetes/c/1071/8025/sweet-syrup). It seems good!!
Curious to hear more experiences with it...
