Just googled and came up with this. Used agave or maple syrup... http://www.ehow.com/how_4735818_sugar-marshmallows-home-reci

Well I just read lots of info for over 2 hours! It was the agave syrup that made me. It's amazing what information is out there. Apparently fructose is bad for the liver and can spike blood sugars just the same as glucose. I should stop reading, marshmellows are moving further and further from my reach! :(

Just a wee word, Id be careful of the marshmellow oil flavouring it may not be gluten free and I think gelatin can have probs regarding gluten as well. Looks like you have more research to do, sorry :)

herika, Apr 29, 8:18pm
p. s. perhaps you could go back and ask the stall holders for the recipe ?

maxwell.inc, Apr 29, 10:23pm
Wonders if my post was invisible?

natalie9, Apr 30, 12:51am
Funny I'd never heard of agave syrup either. And it seems to be as bad as sugar anyway! I know there is the sweetener stevia that is supposed to be good or harmless for you but don't know if that could be used.

natalie9, Apr 30, 12:52am
Oh wow no carbos in that one!

buzzy110, Apr 30, 2:51am
What great knowledge you display there natalie9. Lucky we aren't really allowed to post, now you can make as many erroneous statements as you like. Good O.

buzzy110, Apr 30, 4:08am
No I take that last statement back. I didn't read the recipe properly. Sugar replacement definitely has no carbs, neither does fructose (I think). so my apologies natalie9.

I suppose it would be wrong of me to mention that fructose is turned by the liver into triglycerides and then attaches them to an apo 4 molecule and secretes them into the bloodstream as VLDLs. I also suppose it would be wrong of me to note that artificial sugars are treated the same as ethanol by the liver, turning the sugar alcohols into eldehydes, as in formeldehyde, which then goes on to wreak havoc throughout the entire system, one tiny drop at a time.

I know this is wrong because these two substances have been issued with a GRAS certification by the FDA and they haven't been influenced by pressure groups at all.

Sigh.

jan2242, May 1, 3:08am
Thank you all so much. I will try the fructose one, if I can find fructose. Apologies for not writing sooner as have been ill and away from computer.

maxwell.inc, May 1, 3:21am
Personally I would stay well away from Fructose (even the american diabetes association are now saying so)

"Fructose is a monosaccharide (simple sugar), which the body can use for energy. Because it does not cause blood sugar rise tremendously (has a low glycemic index), it was once thought that fructose was a good substitute for sucrose (table sugar). However, the American Diabetes Association and nutritional experts have changed their minds about this... . "

And then come to your own conclusions.

Personally I would use powdered Stevia in the recipe that I supplied. . or if your not worried about using the chemical variety. . try splenda.

Just a postscript - some artificial sweeteners have a decided laxative effect... so don't overindulge if you're using one of those ;)

jan2242, May 1, 3:40am
Thank you for the warning - scary reading there. I will use Stevia I think.

natalie9, May 1, 4:05am
No worries buzzy.
