It is not surprising that an increasing number of health-conscious consumers bypass white and brown sugar, stevia, agave syrup and honey in the grocery store in favor of pure Canadian maple syrup for health benefits in their diet.

Maple syrup can be great for weight loss. It is lower in calories than honey, and is much better for you than artificial sweeteners. While the promise of being calorie-free may be tempting, the hazardous nature of fake sugars simply isn’t worth it. Natural News states that sugar substitutes and foods that contain them can actually expose you to harmful chemicals like formaldehyde and methanol.

I just bought a quart of honey a few weeks ago that was locally produced. No added chemicals or pesticides to worry about.

A hole is drilled in the maple tree. Then the sugary circulating fluid leaks out and is collected into a container. The sugary fluid is boiled until most of the water evaporates, leaving a thick sugary syrup, which is then filtered to remove impurities.

Maple syrup is a traditional sweetener rich in nutrients, and a much better choice the most of the cheap highly processed sweeteners currently in the market. Grade B is darker and more nutrient dense than Grade A, and is therefore preferred for its nutritional value.

There are a tremendous amount of health benefits associated with the consumption of Maple Syrup. Many cultures that don't believe in traditional medicine rely on it to help cure a full range of ailments.

Maple tree syrup, or more accurately sap, has been used for centuries. In fact, sap from various maple trees first started being processed into syrup long before European settlers even arrived in America. Native Americans had theories about the impact of maple syrup nutrition even back then, and the sweetener had cultural significance to many aboriginal tribes. They even celebrated the Sugar Moon (the first full moon of spring) with a Maple Dance and viewed maple sap as a source of energy and nutrition.

Compared to refined (or “table”) cane sugar that offers absolutely no nutrients, maple syrup contains some important antioxidants and minerals like zinc and manganese. When we do a side-by-side comparison of sugar nutrition and maple syrup nutrition, we see that they have a few things in common, but also some things that definitely make maple syrup more favorable.
