What is maple syrup?
Maple syrup is obtained by evaporating the water from the sap taken from the maple stem. It does not contain preservatives, it is rich in sugars, mineral salts (calcium, potassium, magnesium, manganese, phosphorus), vitamins (B2, B5, B6, niacin, biotin, folic acid) and, like honey, has bactericidal properties. At the same time, it is much less caloric than sugar and honey. It has an amber color, thick texture and a sweet, slightly smoky flavor.
How can you use maple syrup?
Maple syrup is used primarily as a topping for pancakes. It is a great addition to fruit, toast, cakes, ice cream, yoghurt, cereals, salads, sauces and dips. In addition, it is great for vegetables, beans, potatoes, baked and fried meats and fish. It can be used as a substitute for honey and sugar, added to milk, coffee, tea and original drinks.
