RAWesome Friday: Maple Syrup

Pure Maple Syrup.

I'm already drooling.

It's that time of year again, for the amazing tradition of sap collecting!

The Health Benefits of Maple Syrup

  • high in manganese, potassium, and magnesium
  • high in zinc which boosts immunity
  • good source of energy
  • contains 4 mg of polyphenols per 60 g serving (polyphenols have been shown to prevent degenerative diseases such as heart diseases and cancers since they are the most "abundant"  of antioxidants -
  • an amazingly delicious plant-based sweetener

Compared to the imitation maple syrup, PURE maple syrup is the way to go. Imitation syrup contains mostly corn syrup (danger), high fructose corn syrup (even more danger), artificial flavours, and let's be honest..chemicals. It's junk. Toss it!

Instead, enjoy some rawesome  pure maple syrup on your steel cut oats, in your Kicking Horse coffee, or in a salad dressing!
