Tasty, Nutritious and Natural
Maple syrup does not contain any preservatives or chemicals. This product of nature is pure and natural.
Aside from its distinctive taste, maple syrup has a number of qualities that literally puts it in a class of its own. You be the judge...
Vitamins play vital roles in terms of our bodies functioning correctly and fortunately enough; pure maple syrup contains some of these important vitamins. They are found in trace amounts and are mainly B2 (riboflavin), B5 (pantothenic acid), B6 (pyridoxine), PP (niacin), folic acid and vitamin A. While most of them contribute to facilitating energy production and to the metabolism of cells in our bodies (PP, B5 and B2) others play a role in protein and amino acid metabolism by transferring amino acids from one cell to another when needed (B6). Vitamin A is also contained in pure maple syrup and is beneficial to our vision, skin and immune system.
