Benefits and nutritional value
Unlike a lot of syrups and sugars, all maple syrups are 100% natural and completely unrefined. Maple syrup contains vitamins and nutrients that are essential to our daily nutrition requirements. And since it’s rich in amino acids and nucleotides which interact with receptors in the mouth and stomach, it helps keep hunger at bay.
Low glycemic index
Even if maple syrup is sweet, it has a glycemic index (GI) that is lower than both white sugar and corn syrup. That makes it an ideal sweetener for diabetics and people keeping an eye on their sugar intake.
Rich in antioxidants
Maple syrup differs significantly from other sweeteners in its vitamin, trace element and polyphenol content, putting it in the same category as fruits and vegetables when it comes to antioxidant qualities. Find out more >
