Nutritional Value

Discover the sweet science...

Unlike many syrups and sugars, maple syrup is 100% natural and completely unrefined-retaining all the sap's nutritional elements as it's transformed into syrup. Best of all, maple syrup is made up of vitamins and nutrients that are an essential part of a daily diet.

Not only does maple syrup have a distinctly unique taste, its flavour profile is also one of a kind. Unlike other sweeteners, maple syrup isn't classified as tasting "sweet," but rather "umami"-meaning savoury and wholesome.
