Maple syrup is completely natural – no colouring, no artificial flavours, and certainly no preservatives. The only ingredient in maple syrup is the concentrated sap from the maple tree. It tastes good and is good for you!
Maple syrup also contains an unparalleled variety of polyphenols (beneficial micronutrients) – 65 in total, nine of which are found only in maple syrup, and offers health benefits similar to those of berries, tea, red wine and flax seed.
With so much nutritional power, maple syrup could turn out to be the next superfood! In fact, recent studies in Canada and the USA indicate that maple syrup from Canada may be better at controlling blood sugar levels and insulin resistance when compared to white sugar. This is certainly heartening news, given that diabetes is reaching epidemic levels in India.
