Maple’s syrup is a completely natural product that does not contain any supplements (preservatives) and can be kept for a long time. That is why it is highly regarded as a foodstuff (sweetener), aroma and industrial raw material (candies, tiles, cakes).

Lesser known outside the borders of North America, the syrup that comes from maple bark is one of the most delicious sweeteners in the world. Maple’s syrup is a sweet, dark plant juice, which is collected in the late winter and early spring, when the trees of the maple abound in it. After the addition, the juice is thermally processed so that the water is evaporated and the final product is concentrated syrup.
The tradition of its collection comes from American natives, and was taken over by American settlers.
The largest share on the market is held by Canada, whose syrups are considered the highest quality and Canadian national treasures. The maple syrup is more than a sweetener because it abounds in minerals and antioxidants that make it a particularly healthy food. The maple syrup is a highly nutritious food.
Rich in minerals – a portion of 60 milliliters of maple syrup contains:
- 100% daily manganese requirements
- 37% for riboflavin
- 18% for zinc
- 7% for magnesium
- 5% for calcium and potassium
It can contain more antioxidants than many other foods that are considered particularly rich in them.
