Maple syrup is a great product mainly because it is a very natural sweetener. There is nothing added to the sap. It is simply boiled down to produce the syrup we are familiar with. You can use it to replace sweetener in many things including baking, cooking, yogurt, smoothies, etc. It is best known as a topping for pancakes, waffles, ice cream and other desserts. It is a good choice because in its non-refined state it retains the nutritional value of the sap it is produced from while still having a lower calorie level than most syrup sweeteners.
So add some maple syrup to your diet to reduce your refined sugar intake and best of all to enjoy some delicious maple syrup flavor that cannot be copied or replaced by anything else! Enjoy!
