MAPLE SYRUP'S SURPRISING BENEFITS
Maple syrup is a natural sugar containing vitamins and minerals.
It’s good to know that pure Canadian maple syrup is a natural product, with no artificial colours, flavours or preservatives. But did you know it’s also rich in the mineral manganese, which helps to look after bones and connective tissue?
In fact, maple is full of surprises. It’s rich in riboflavin, helping to reduce tiredness and fatigue. It’s also a source of copper, which is important for looking after connective tissue, the nervous and immune systems, hair colour and skin pigmentation.
Maple products include a range of natural sweeteners. Whether you’re preparing a hearty breakfast or a post-training snack, maple is a natural source of energy favoured by athletes and fitness enthusiasts.
And there’s more. The unique taste of maple complements both sweet and savoury dishes. From mid-week casseroles and soups to snacks and speciality desserts, maple acts as a flavour enhancer and is a great alternative to processed sweeteners.
We’re proud that athletes, chefs, and nutritionists count themselves as maple-lovers. These ambassadors help us spread the word about maple as a delicious, versatile ingredient.
