The latter is a well-known natural sweetener, appreciated and used a lot, especially in the United States and Canada. The reason? It is good, but also nutritious and beneficial.

In addition to its sweetening power, it is equipped with numerous beneficial substances and perfect properties to promote the health of the body. In fact, both the syrup and the sugar obtained from these trees are rich in minerals such as calcium, potassium and iron. Also, vitamins are not lacking, as well as malic acid, present in considerable quantities. With these assumptions, it is obvious that these are foods that ensure a remineralizing and energizing effect.

Obviously, we should not exaggerate with the doses, but it still presents itself as a perfect food for sportsmen and subjects of all ages. In short, maple syrup sugar is an option not to be underestimated and you can use it to sweeten drinks and desserts of all kinds … You just have to test it!
