Give This Tasty Sugar Alternative a Chance (Infographic)

Have you given maple syrup a fair chance? This natural sweetener is reminiscent of honey, but, until now, it’s been a waffle and pancake topper and not much else. The tasty sauce originates from Canada, where it goes through a process to become the sticky-sweet and 100 percent natural sweetener it is. Check out the facts about how healthy and delicious unprocessed maple syrup can be.

Have certainly always been fond of real maple syrup as it is flavourful, robust and delightful.

I have what I call a "veganish" diet. I started using maple syrup and love it. Haven't bought honey for years and I don't miss it at all. Didn't know it had such good qualities; thanks for sharing.

It's o.k. John K. both U.S. and Cda have a number of states/prov that are known for their excellent Maple Syrup and only right that we purchase locally whenever possible.

We have a producer nearby that has been awarded an award for excellence and have a number of maple syrup items...I've unfortunately I recently discovered their candy ! Also now use it instead of honey...yes, it can be a little costlier but a little goes a long way.

The charts shown were merely given by a Canadian group of producers and is merely showing the public the differences and is just input on something Care2 felt was worthy of for it's subscribers which include more than just us and not really promoting buy Canadian...unless you're Canadian that is !
