Soothing Sweetness 

Old Fashioned Maple Sugar

Maple is a unique, delicious, low glycemic natural sweetener.  It contains calcium, potassium, manganese, magnesium, phosphorus, iron and trace amounts of B2, B5, B6, niacin, biotin, folic acid, and zinc, as well as many amino acids, the building blocks of protein.

Researchers from the University of Rhode Island found 54 beneficial compounds in maple syrup that are anti-inflammatory agents shown to be beneficial to chronic diseases such as heart disease, diabetes, cancers and Alzheimer's; five of which have never been seen in nature before.

Researchers may have found a natural way to cut down on antibiotic use without sacrificing health: a maple syrup extract that dramatically increases the potency of these medicines. 

“Native populations in Canada have long used maple syrup to fight infections,” says Nathalie Tufenkji, Ph.D. “I’ve always been interested in the science behind these folk medicines.”  “There are other products out there that boost antibiotic strength, but this may be the only one that comes from nature,” 

Maple syrup is a natural sweetener consumed by individuals of all ages throughout the world. Maple syrup contains not only carbohydrates such as sucrose but also various components such as organic acids, amino acids, vitamins and phenolic compounds. 

A provocative study published recently in the journal Oncology Reports reveals that a commonly used sweetener, maple syrup, inhibits the growth and invasion of human colorectal cancer cells.

Pure Maple Syrup is a unique and natural product produced exclusively by the concentration of sap from the maple tree.  It is a natural sweetener that contains no added sugar, coloring agents, artificial flavorings, preservatives or other additives, and is a superior source of important nutrients and vitamins when compared to other sweeteners.
