100% Pure Organic Maple Syrup
Maple syrup is one of the many wonders of the world! It tastes incredible and contains fewer calories and a higher concentration of minerals than honey. This viscous amber liquid with its characteristic earthy sweet taste is made from the sap of the maple tree. The process of creating maple syrup begins with tapping the tree, which allows the sap to run out freely. The sap is clear and almost tasteless and very low in sugar content when it is first tapped. It is then boiled to evaporate the water producing syrup with the characteristic flavor and color of maple syrup and sugar content of 60%. This is one of the reasons our bar isn’t 100% raw, because this wonder of nature has to be boiled.
The trace mineral manganese is an essential cofactor in a number of enzymes important in energy production and antioxidant defenses.
The zinc supplied by maple syrup is also an antioxidant.
