Compared to refined (or “table”) cane sugar that offers absolutely no nutrients, maple syrup contains some important antioxidants and minerals like zinc and manganese. Maple syrup nutrition is impressive when it comes to supplying protective antioxidants. These are beneficial for reducing free radical damage that can cause inflammation and contribute to the formation of various chronic diseases.
It is important to buy a good quality maple syrup. I recommend this maple syrup because it is pure and tastes so delicious. We use it for baking, pancakes, waffles and even smoothies. Just wonderful!
