Wheat syrup is a sweetener derived from wheat starch. It is widely used in the production of food and beverage products, as well as to sweeten other products such as breakfast cereals and granola bars. Wheat syrup has a mild flavor similar to honey or molasses, but with less sugar content than either one. Nutritionally speaking, wheat syrup contains some vitamins, minerals and dietary fiber which can be beneficial for overall health when consumed in moderation. The caloric value of wheat syrup is roughly the same as that of cane sugar or honey; however this product does not contain any added sucrose so it may offer an advantage over other sugars if you are trying to minimize your intake of refined carbohydrates. Additionally, many people find that they prefer the taste of wheat syrups since they tend to have more complex flavors than traditional table sugars do. On the downside, while consuming moderate amounts of wheat syrup may be beneficial nutritionally-speaking there are still risks associated with its use – like any added sugar source it should only be enjoyed in small quantities due to its high calorie content which can contribute towards weight gain if consumed excessively.. Additionally those who suffer from gluten sensitivities should avoid using this product altogether due to potential contamination issues during manufacturing processes where cross contact between grains containing gluten could occur.
