Log Cabin to my delight has reformulated it syrup line by replacing High Fructose Corn Syrup (HFCS) with natural sugar. How fabulous is that? The reformulation was driven by growing consumer concerns about High Fructose Corn Syrup. Consumers are increasingly concerned about the ubiquity of high fructose corn syrup at the shelf. Several other top brands have removed or looked into the removal of high fructose corn syrup in their products.
“Heritage and history are important to us, as our brand has proved to be a family household tradition since 1887” says Allison Meyer, Associate Brand Manager of Pinnacle Foods. “That said, Log Cabin is the first brand in a long time to bring innovation to the syrup category by removing high fructose corn syrup.”
Reformulated Log Cabin syrup can be found on store shelves across the country in Log Cabin Original Flavor and Log Cabin Lite flavors. Log Cabin Sugar Free is also sold at stores across the country.
We got the chance to try out Log Cabin with No HFCS and I was pleasantly surprised. The only difference that I noticed was the thinner consistency but I’ve never been a huge fan of super thick syrup anyway. I tend to like a lot of syrup on my breakfast foods and a thinner syrup means I eat less. Both my husband and Lucian enjoyed it just as much and I definitely plan to buy it again!
If you are looking for a recipe, here is one that uses new Log Cabin with No High Fructose Corn Syrup:
Apple Pecan Baked Pancake
1/2 c. favorite pancake mix
2 tbsp. butter — (melted)
1 c. Granny Smith apple — (peeled and sliced)
1/3 c. pecans — (chopped)
3 c. Log Cabin syrup
1/2 tsp. cinnamon — (ground)
Heat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare pancake mix according to package directions; and set aside. Pour melted butter in 9″ pie plate. Place apple slices in bottom of pie plate; sprinkle cinnamon and pecans and drizzle syrup over apples; carefully pour batter on top. Bake at 350 degrees for 30-35 minutes or until top springs back when touched. Loosen edges and invert onto serving plate. Cut in wedges and serve with warm maple syrup and/or fresh apple butter. Serves 4 to 6. Good served with sausage links.
I haven’t had a chance to make this yet but want I plan try it. Doesn’t is sound delicious?
