Actually, it would be nearly sugar free if it wasnít for the small trace in the concentrate.
Below, Iíve included a list of sugar free concentrate flavors. All others on our flavor list contain sugar.

Sugar Free Shaved Ice Syrup Recipe
In a gallon jug, add 1 quart of hot water. Pour the entire contents of a sugar-free base pack into the jug. Cap and shake vigorously for 1 minute until the solution is thoroughly mixed. Next, add cold water to fill the jug, leaving enough room for 4 ounces of concentrate. Cap the jug again and shake for 1 minute. Allow the unflavored syrup to sit for 30 minutes before flavoring. After 30 minutes, flavor with your choice of concentrate.
Now that I've explained how easy it is, go ahead and choose your flavors from the list above and get started! Some of the most popular sugar-free flavors are Wild Cherry, Grape, Strawberry, Banana, Dreamsycle and Pink Lemonade.
A pure cane sugar syrup has a pretty long shelf life when preserved. Unfortunately, the shelf life of the sugar-free solution will be shorter - generally 7 to 14 days. Consider refrigerating the syrup to extend the life by an additional week.
If youíre afraid you canít use a full gallon of sugar-free syrup before it expires, consider dividing the powdered formula into 4 equal parts and make a quart of syrup instead. This is also a good way for you to test which flavors are more popular with your customers before mixing large batches.
