Maple syrup – a sugar alternative

Looking for a healthy sugar alternative? Look no further. Pure maple syrup from Canada can be used in a variety of desserts and baked goods, such as pies and cakes.

To apply maple syrup as a white or brown sugar alternative, use a one-for-one substitution and reduce the quantity of liquid ingredients in the recipe (water, milk, juice) by about 60ml. Maple syrup can also serve as a one-to-one substitute for liquid sweeteners, such as honey, treacle and corn syrup.

Why is maple syrup one of the best sugar alternatives?

This healthy sweetener is 100% natural, pure and free of colourings and additives.
Boiled down directly from tree sap, which is harvested from the maple tree towards the end of winter, maple syrup is an unprocessed, authentic product of nature.

White sugar, for example, is typically derived from sugar cane, and it is processed and purified before being sold. Because maple syrup is not processed, it contains higher levels of potentially beneficial minerals, including calcium, potassium, magnesium, zinc, sodium and copper, making it the best sugar alternative.

In addition, 100% pure maple syrup does not contain high fructose corn syrup, a modified sugar substitute commonly found in processed foods.
